Get ready to dive into another fantastic update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds which released today. PUBG 12.2 adds a brand new map, Taego, to the iconic battle royale and we have everything you need to know about PUBG Update 12.2.

Latest - PUBG Update 12.2 Is Live

After around six hours of server downtime earlier today, the new PUBG Update 12.2 is now live. You can check out the new map, Taego, as well as the exclusive weapons, vehicles and mechanics that are launching with it.

With this in mind, we're expecting PUBG's servers to be brought offline at around 17:30 PST (July 6) / 20:30 EST (July 6) / 01:30 BST (July 7) ahead of the actual PUBG 12.2 release date.

Taego, the new PUBG map, isn't the only thing being introduced in the new update. There are two new weapons, a new limited-time featured playlist and a self-revive feature all being added alongside a slew of bug fixes and UI improvements. PUBG isn't going anywhere just yet...
