PUBG Season 11 is out now on PC platforms and we have everything you need to know about the upcoming update if you play on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, or PlayStation 5.

Console Release Date

Somewhat unusually, PUBG has opted to update its' PC version at a different time to its' console versions.

Rather than the March 31st release date that was given to the PC version, PUBG players on Xbox and PlayStation will have to wait until April 8th for Season 11 to drop with the 11.1 Patch update.

We understand that PUBG Mobile operates almost entirely separately from the standard PUBG title, as with most mobile games, but this week-long wait for console players is a little odd.

However, it is most likely down to formatting issues and the permissions needed to update titles on both the Xbox storefront and PS Store.

New Features

PUBG Season 11 is introducing a few interesting features to the game on Xbox and PlayStation when it launches next week.

Firstly, the volcanic Paramo map has been added back to both Normal and Custom games.
