PUBG 1.0 (XBOX One) Release Notes

NEW MAP SANHOK

Sanhok is 4km x 4km map (one fourth the size of Erangel or Miramar). Although games tend to end a little more quickly on this tiny island, battles are still massive. Every game still features 100 players.

Certain settings have been customized specifically for Sanhok to better fit its unique design. Details are below.

Performance

  • Faraway players and vehicles aren’t rendered the same way on Sanhok, resulting in some server performance improvements.

Gameplay

  • Weather in Sanhok changes dynamically.
  • Players can throw apples while waiting to board the plane in the in-game lobby.

Redzone

  • The redzone is smaller and shorter-lasting on Sanhok.
  • The center of the redzone appears outside of the playzone (the white circle). This means players are more at risk when outside of the playzone.

Bluezone

  • Bluezone on Sanhok has shorter waiting times and longer travel times.
  • The bluezone is also dynamic. It checks remaining player numbers before deciding the next circle, adjusting the waiting time and travel time accordingly (this doesn’t affect circle size).

Spawn Balance

  • The item spawn rules have been customized on Sanhok to get you equipped for battle faster.
  • ARs, SMGs, and DMRs are spawned more often.
  • 8x scopes and 15x scopes don’t spawn on Sanhok. However, they may still be obtained from care packages.

In-game lobby

  • Everyone will receive 20 apples in the in-game lobby which can be thrown around freely. Practice your throwing skills while you wait for the game to be started.

NEW WEAPONS AND VEHICLES

  • QBZ: The QBZ is an AR that uses 5.56mm rounds. It can hold 30 rounds per magazine, and can be extended to 40 rounds.
  • QBU: The QBU is a new, Sanhok-exclusive DMR with a standard magazine of 10 rounds of 5.56mm ammo, which can be increased to 20 with an extended magazine.
  • There is bipod attached to QBU—it will greatly reduce recoil when you shoot while prone.

 

Our Take:

It’s finally here! We gave the 1.0 release a try last night and couldn’t be happier with what we played. PUBG has done a great job of improving performance and features since its launch last Fall. We look forward to playing more and more of PUBG.
