Latest PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) patch fixes flying vehicles and improves stability

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is a last-man-standing shooter being developed with the help of community feedback. Starting with absolutely nothing, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the only one alive. PUBG is a surprisingly realistic and high-tension title set on a massive island. Unfortunately the game suffers from numerous issues on Xbox One.

Today, the developer released a new PUBG update which focuses on improving stability and reducing the number of crashes players experience. A major bug fix is also included in this patch. Keep in mind that this doesn't mean that all crashes will be gone, PUBG Corp. is working hard to fix others as soon as possible.

  • A memory leak was fixed regarding character renders. This should help to reduce crashes.
  • The developer has made improvements to level streaming logic which should also reduce crashes. The process of loading resources while simultaneously offloading the oldest stored resources has been made more efficient.
  • Fixed a bug where vehicles would sometimes lift off the ground and spin rapidly.

Hopefully this patch will also bring frame rate improvements for Xbox One owners. Games like Fortnite are witnessing unprecedented success because many players are abandoning PUBG due to its problems. The fixes need to come out soon before it's too late.

  • I honestly don't know how these shady developers ruined the unreal engine so much. Their game looks like it's from 2013, and runs worse than Crisis did at launch. Meanwhile, other developers are using the same engine and creating bigger and far more detailed games at double to triple the performance.. And instead of fixing these issues, they decide to sue the competition that has their **** together.
  • I think it's just that the developer isn't experienced enough. A lot of Unreal Engine 4 games have issues on consoles.
  • The issue with that is... its performance is shot on PC as well. I don't want to go buy a 1080 Ti GPU with 32GB of RAM to enjoy the game.
  • It still has a lot of issues for me on Xbox One X.
  • I really don't see the major issues on Xbox One X.
    The things I still see are minor, like rough spots I hit in cars and loot loading slow, but both are rare at this point.
    I just want to see the new game modes and maps.
