While PUBG has been an unbridled success so far on the Xbox One platform, it’s still rather rough around the edges particularly for original Xbox One owners. Fortunately, Microsoft and Bluehole have been working together rapidly to address known issues. The latest update, patch number 4, has released as of this morning and addresses game crashing along and several player feedback items. The full list of changes can be found here and is listed below as well:
Thank you for your enthusiastic feedback and support as we transitioned into 2018. The team has been working diligently to elevate the overall player experience, as well as listen and react to our community feedback. Below you will find quality of life fixes, as well as our efforts to resolve known memory crashes, and incremental improvements to performance. Given the complexity of some of the crashes that have been logged, we know there is still work remaining in order for us to reproduce and address all remaining issues. Crash fixes, like all areas of the game, will be something we continue to improve upon as part of our Xbox Game Preview roadmap.
- Aim acceleration can now be adjusted by players via in-game option
- Player weapon damage has been increased against vehicles. We will continue to monitor player feedback and telemetry and make further balancing adjustments as needed in future updates
- FPP Solo matchmaking queue will be made available for NA/EU/and Oceanic servers. We will open other modes within those regions as concurrency allows
- Fixed an issue that caused indoor lighting and shadows to appear too dark and blueish
- Analog stick acceleration added while exiting the plane and while parachuting
- PhysX performance enhancements
- Server FPS slightly increased
- Client FPS slightly increased
- Some VFX received slight optimizations
- Music on/off option added
- Addressed a number of known crashes
- Fixed a UI issue that occurred when multiple players attempted to loot from the same source
PUBG has taken over a lot of the gaming time the SG editors have so the faster the game is updated and optimized, the happier we are. The fixes for crashing along with the updates for aim acceleration and vehicle damage are most welcome in particular. We can’t wait to jump in later today.
