The PC update has no specific time for a release yet, but it will be a live server update, meaning the servers will be down for a time.

There are a few major changes coming in this update, with the biggest perhaps being the return and rework of Sanhok, which has been reverted to its original form. The docks, ruins, and quarry locations are set to come back, and the jungle theme will be reinstated. The loot truck, decoy grenade, and jammer pack are also being removed as part of these changes. 


Update 17.1 will also see a new season of the ranked mode as Season 16 ends. All rewards players have earned from the previous season will be added to their inventories once the season begins, but once it ends, these rewards will be removed, except for the parachute skin.

For players looking for new weapons, you're in luck as this update will also add the ACE32, which is a brand-new 7.62mm assault rifle. It's supposed to address the differences between the 7.62mm and 5.56mm and will have relatively low recoil. It will be available on all the game's maps. The last big change comes to the tactical gear, as the tactical pack will no longer be able to store items like the drone, EMT gear, and spotter scope. 

You can see the rest of the changes in the full patch notes here, but that's all for our breakdown of the PUBG update 17.1 patch notes, and now you know about the new map change, ranked season, weapon, and more.
