PUBG Corp celebrated the progress of the Erangel visual remaster Wednesday by releasing a recap of its test phase on the Public Test Server. Testing ran from June 6 to June 11.
PC Players: The test server is now closed as we wrap up public testing of the Erangel Visual Update.— PUBG Support (@PUBG_Support) June 12, 2019
Thank you for participating and sharing feedback on all the changes! Later this summer, the Erangel Visual Update will be playable on live servers.https://t.co/kPPdMdC2FD
More than 870,000 players took part in the test, playing a combined 182,383 hours on Erangel. A fraction of the 771,821 eliminated players were revived — just 171,350 — and only 9,221 players took home chicken dinners. Eleven of those victories were squad wins completed without killing an enemy.
Players covered 1.5 million kilometers in vehicles, running over 5,727 players in the process and blowing up 44,885 cars.
The stats shared included weapon and ammo usage, with the M416 firing 9,643,279 shots — 4 million more than the AKM, which sported the next highest total. 17,444,763 rounds of 5.56mm ammo were expended.
Stats specific to the Erangel redesign included the number of destructible haystacks (1,157) and the number of visits to secret bunkers (1,437), both new features added in the redesign.
The recap also included the six most popular pieces of feedback, three positive and three negative. It closed by sharing a brief FAQ about the redesign and a promise to share more information about the redesign timeline in the future.
