PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is a battle royale game focused on scavenging weapons and using stealth or other tactics to be the last person alive. While the title has see unprecedented popularity on Steam and other platforms like the Xbox One, it still suffers from a lack of optimization. For example, even with one of the best NVIDIA cards out there, you frequently see drops down to 30 FPS even at moderate settings. The base Xbox One version drops down even further, and the Xbox One X port doesn't take advantage of the added power in a meaningful way.
Developer Bluehole is aware of these issues and today, launched a campaign called "Fix PUBG". According to the company, "This is a phrase that we've been hearing a lot lately. Bugs, performance problems, and quality-of-life issues have been limiting PUBG's true potential, and you want it fixed. So we think it's time to do something about it." Fix PUBG is a months-long campaign to deliver the changes and improvements players have been asking for.
The team has created a roadmap with specific goals and topics it wants to address. There are categories like "Client Performance", "Server Performance", "Anti-Cheat", "Matchmaking", and "Bug Fix and Quality of Life Issues". Each section has a timeline which goes from August to October. For example, the developer wants to complete "Level Streaming Optimization" by the end of August. "Network Code Optimization" has a target of October. You can go to the Fix PUBG website and take a look at the topics you care about the most like Xbox One improvements. If you scroll down, you can read about detailed changes, which are broken down even further.
It's great to see that Bluehole is addressing the long-standing user complaints in this manner. Hopefully the studio will be able to fix all of these problems so that PUBG stands at the top of the genre again.
