Players will now be able to check their performance in Career, and Leaderboard.
Erangel and Miramar - both maps are now playable
Which map is played will be selected randomly when a match begins - This is a great change and really creates a nice flow. You're never sure of what to expect and so things will never truly feel boring.
Added a wet effect to vehicles. This effect can be found in rainy weather on Erangel. - Perhaps this will make it so that vehicles swerve and behave differently under different weather conditions. This may also hint at possible future maps where other weather conditions could effect gameplay (Snow).
