The aim, it would seem, is to curtail passive play, a strategy that basically involves hiding and trying to keep your health up - if several players are left at the end, the one with the most health wins.

As you can see, the blue zone delay (or time between new blue zones) has been severely decreased, meaning you can't hang around and loot for almost as long as you used to be able to.

PUBG Corp, the developers behind the massively popular PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), have released the patch notes for PC Update #10.

This changes the way you're going to want to approach the initial portion of each match, including where you choose to drop.

For those of you still to claim, know that signups kick off on Saturday 14 at 5am PST/1pm BST, and close at the same time on Tuesday 17.

The biggest change of the patch is indeed the change to the blue zone speed, which now starts much earlier than before but at a slower speed.
