Tidigt i morse drog en ny testomgång för version 1.0 av Battlegrounds igång, och med det kommer en mängd nyheter, uppdateringar och buggfixar.
Liksom tidigare tester körs denna testomgång under en kort period, närmare bestämt fram till klockan 8 på morgonen nu på fredag. Du kan spela solo eller i squad, i både första- och tredjepersonsvy. Nästa vecka väntar ännu en testvända, tiderna meddelas senare.
Funktionerna för att hoppa och klättra (vaulting, climbing) har finjusterats, berättar den matiga changeloggen. Det har gjorts ytterligare ett antal prestandaoptimeringar, skadan för olika kroppsdelar har ombalanserats (i korthet: headshots ger mer skada, skott i händer och fötter mindre), healing med bandage går mycket snabbare, för att nämna några av ändringarna.
