Brendan Greene offers an update on console performance.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is currently one of the hottest Early Access games available on Steam. It will also be coming to the Xbox One and Xbox One X but not a lot of information has been offered about the same. Fortunately, Brendan Greene aka “PlayerUnknown” himself discussed it with Eurogamer, noting that the current performance on Xbox One X offers 30 to 40 FPS on 100 man servers. This is on Xbox One X of course.
Greene said that, “We have a version running on the Xbox One X prototype in the office which can plug into the online servers. We were playing on live servers on the console at about 30 or 40 FPS. So it works on 100 man servers.” Final player counts per server were not discussed. Greene did note that most of the team was currently finishing the PC version in South Korea while Anticto, a Spanish developer, was working on the console version.
Though the final frame rate hasn’t been confirmed, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still in the process of being optimized for the PC as well. Though launched for Xbox Game Preview in late 2017, it could take a while before a full launch happens on Xbox One and Xbox One X. The full PC version is currently slated to launch in 2018.
