There are differences between Test Servers and Live Servers. Live servers are pretty much where we get the finished product. Most games are played in these servers such as classic matches and tournaments. For updates to reach live servers it has to be tested and approved by many people. That’s where the test servers come in handy. Whenever there is a new feature is being added to PUBG it has been tested in the test servers by many players and then these new features carried to the actual game itself.
For example, when the PUBG’s developers were testing the window jumping they first launched the mechanics on the test servers. After it’s been tested and approved by players, it’s up to developers to launch it on the live servers or not. Just because something was launched in test servers doesn’t mean that it will hit the live servers eventually. Developers can change these new mechanics or even remove them from the game completely.
How to Join the Test Servers?
Getting into the test server is extremely easy compared to most other online videogames as many games only take requests and decide if the person who’s applying is eligible or not. To play in the test server, you must already own PUBG on Steam. Then both live version of the PUBG and the test server will be available for you to play in. You can differentiate the live and test server. Since it’s called PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (Test Server).
