PUBG Season 6 Start Date

PUBG Season 6 comes with a full set of patch notes for PC players starting Jan. 22. The patch notes are the same for PUBG Console players, though no start date has been announced yet for those players.

Approximately seven hours of maintenance will take place starting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, and the new patch -- and, subsequently, Season 6 -- will be available to play at the end of that period, according to a post on Reddit from PUBG Corp.

"Once maintenance is complete, Karakin, Survivor Pass: Shakedown, Survival Title Season 6, throwable Sticky Bombs, performance improvements, bug fixes and more will be available," PUBG Corp wrote.

The biggest change in PUBG Update 6.1 is the addition of the new map Karakin, which will replace VIkendi in the active map selection. Karakin is a desert map that includes a new map-exclusive sticky bomb explosive. The new map will also have a new feature called the Black Zone, a hazard that is designed to push playeres out of the safety of buildings.
