Earlier today it was noticed that the servers for popular PC gaming title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds were taken offline, leaving gamers unable to play the game for roughly an hour, however, it seems that the downtime was due to the latest rollout of weekly updates for the early access title.

The latest update is the 26th addition to the title since it first opened in early access on Steam and now that developers Bluehole Inc. have released into the game to improve the gameplay of the title and we can now see what changes have been made following an update being added to the changelog for the game.

The update is said to weigh in about 1GB and contains a number of subtle changes to the game in order to put minor issues straight, including the deployment of the much-anticipated desert map and it has been revealed that a new night-mode will be coming to the game shortly.
