The first of several test sessions in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One for the Miramar desert map did not go smoothly. There were a wide variety of technical issues that prevented the map from being played, though developer PUBG Corp. says those have now been resolved. To make up for the problems, it's now extended the test's availability.
Server and matchmaking issues began occurring as soon as the first test period began on Wednesday evening (US time). PUBG Corp. took servers offline for a period of time to address the matters, and they remained down for more than seven hours. As of this writing, the servers are back online, and this test period has been extended and will run until 11 PM PT tonight, April 26 (2 AM ET / 7 AM BST). As detailed on PUBG's forums, you can see the updated test schedule below.
