On the PUBG console version end, the game's console team on Wednesday revealed on Reddit that the game's June patch is coming soon and will bring a number of new features and enhancements.

“The next patch is currently scheduled for June 27 PDT and will introduce some highly demanded features to the console experience, including the auto-equipping of scopes, magazines and muzzle attachments, a tactical marker communications system for those players without access to mics, and a new controller layout scheme for better mobility in battle,” KooSung Jeong of PUBG's console development team wrote on Reddit.

“Vikendi and Erangel will both get loot rebalances and the highly anticipated Weapons Mastery system makes will make its debut on consoles,” Jeong added.

Here's the full changelog of the June patch for PUBG console version

  • Weapons Mastery

    • New progression feature in PUBG with unique, awesome, and free rewards

    • New avenue for players to improve their weapon skills

  • Vikendi Loot Spawn Rebalance

    • Blue Zone adjustment

    • Increased spawn rate of AR, DMR and SR (especially SR)

  • Auto Equip Attachments

    • We understand that handling attachments with the controller can sometimes be difficult and players would sometimes avoid early combat due to having insufficient time to equip attachments

    • To solve for this, we created an auto equip attachment feature to reduce time when equipping needed attachments. Less time in your inventory means more time for battle!

  • Controller Preset C

    • Like the above auto equip feature, we are focusing on improving overall player experience during battles

    • On the controller, leaning is configured to thumbsticks and we understand it can sometimes affect your movement and aim

    • Controller Preset C moves the bindings of leaning from the thumbsticks to the bumper buttons, as well as making a number of other suggested changes.
