As far as the patch notes are concerned, then, PUBG update 1.27 is more or less a cosmetic patch from any and all perspectives. On the features side, PGC lobby acurements have nothing to do with the in-game experience, and almost all of the listed bug fixes offer solutions to graphical shortcomings. The console versions of PUBG are still full of visual glitches and oddities, but today's update goes a long way toward ironing out some of the more obvious examples spreading across the community. The patch doesn't make any of the action better, but at least matches are able to stay grounded in the gameplay without being interrupted by weird things to look at.

The larger purpose of this download is, of course, to publicly advertise for upcoming PGC 2019 matches in-game. For those unfamiliar with the PUBG esports circuit, PGC is the game's final major esports event of the year, featuring representation from the world's best teams like FaZe Clan, Liquid and Genesis. The competition's semifinals are set to take place November 15, with the Grand Finals following one week later on the weekend of November 23. As the bracket heats up, this update ensures all players know about the upcoming action.

PUBG is available now on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and mobile. This 1.27 update is exclusive to Xbox One and PS4.
