PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds Xbox One Patch Released, Addresses Rubber Banding And Optimization

Other issues have also been addressed.

Posted By | On 14th, Jan. 2018

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been playable on Xbox One through Xbox Game Preview for almost a month now, and it’s fair to say that the game didn’t launch in the best state (which is to be expected, considering it’s technically not a full launch, and is still in game preview). As such, we expect developers PUBG Corporation to continue making improvements through patches- and a patch is exactly what they’ve done.

The latest patch for the Xbox One version of PUBG fixes a number of issues (you can see the full details on the PUBG forums). For one, rubber banding issues have been fixed, while server performance during parachuting has also been given a boost. On the gameplay front, players can now equip pistols by pressing up on the d-pad, while a new controller pre-set has also been added to the options menu.

A couple of known issues have also been fixed, such as one where dropping items caused players to switch weapons automatically, as well as one where users would be unable to switch grenades even while tapping right on the d-pad. There are some other fixes the patch brings about as well, and you can read about them in greater detail through the link provided above.

PUBG recently exited its early access state on PC, so we decided to finally review it. You can read our official review for the game here. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more content.
