With the recent Month 1 Update, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds now has both a test server and a feature where players can create a custom match. To recap what was added in via the Month 1 Update, be sure to head over and read the full patch notes. The custom match feature is one of the most requested additions (aside from balancing, FPS, and reduced lag).

Below, we’ve listed everything we currently know about how to join and create a custom match in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Note: This guide is a work-in-progress.

Create and Join a Custom Match

The Custom Match feature in PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds.

As of right now, the custom match feature is only available to developers for internal testing purposes. Custom matches will likely be rolled out in a later update, with PUBG partners getting first access.

To locate the custom match option in Battlegrounds, hover over the “Play” button on the upper left corner of your screen, then click on the bottom option that says “Custom Match.” This will let you view a list of custom matches created by other players, developers, and PUBG partners. In addition, you will likely be able to create your own custom match in the future once the feature is fully introduced for all Battlegrounds members (not just devs and partners).

Custom match parameters can include everything from altering the weather to first-person only modes. When Battlegrounds’ custom match feature becomes fully accessible for all players, we’ll update this guide on how to set up different match parameters, how to join a premade custom match, and more. Until then, be sure to check Battlegrounds to see if the custom match feature is up and running.
