How to check PUBG: Battlegrounds server status
If you’re unable to access the PUBG servers, we first recommend checking the official Twitter support page for the game. This is where you can see the latest information on any upcoming maintenance for the live server and potential issues that PUBG might currently be experiencing.
We April 11PUBG will be entering a maintenance window starting at 8 PM ET / 7 PM CT / 5 PM PT. This downtime is expected to last 8.5 hoursand once completed players will be able to access the latest Update 23.1.
Additionally, you can also look at the Down Detector page and see if other people are reporting issues getting into the game as well. Here you can see the status of PUBG over the last 24 hours, which can give you a good idea if the game has been having problems throughout the day.
From there, we recommend looking at the specific server status of the platform you are playing on. Steam players will want to check SteamDB, while PlayStation and Xbox players will want to go to their respective console’s status pages. While most of the time when you experience an issue on a specific platform, it’s likely that every instance of the game will be affected, however, there is potential for PUBG to be having problems on just one platform.
If you have checked all of the above locations and have not found any indication that PUBG is having server problems, we first recommend restarting your internet router. Also depending on the platform you’re using try rebooting your console or PC. If all else fails get in touch with PUBG Support so they can help you try to get back into the game.
