Server performance issues, quality of life issues, anti-cheats, and much more to be addressed in next few months.
Bluehole Studios and PUBG Corp have seen great success with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. That said, lingering issues, among other things, have caused the game’s reputation to take a sharp downturn since launch. To address these issues, the development team has announced the “Fix PUBG” campaign with a dedicated microsite and roadmap outlining the next few months.
Client optimization, server performance, anti-cheat features, matchmaking, and quality of life fixes are the main categories that will be tracked from now until October. Various specific details have also been provided on different fixes and more information will be coming as the campaign progresses.
In the meantime, a new patch is heading to live servers on PC to kickstart the campaign. Some of the fixes and improvements included in this patch are a graphics sharpening option, mute options for individual teammates, colourblind and loot to stack splitting improvements, reduced vehicle sounds in first person perspective, FPS cap adjustments, and much more.
The developer further added, “Many of the improvements we’ll be making to the PC version will naturally be carried over to the Xbox version of the game as well. We’re committed to fixing problems for all our players.”
