PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) on Xbox One X should be improved soon

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. The title has see unprecedented popularity on Steam and other platforms like the Xbox One over the past several months.

A few weeks ago, developer Bluehole announced a campaign called "Fix PUBG" which aims to make the game better for all players. A few days ago, the team outlined some of the important changes coming to the Xbox One version of the game. You can read about the major ones below.

  • The developer will fix Xbox Achievements not unlocking. This appears to be an issue with the servers and, if you met the requirements, you should unlock them automatically once the fix rolls out.
  • Xbox One X performance will be optimized soon. Currently, the game runs at 4K 30 FPS on the console, and the frame rate is all over the place.
  • A fix for "Survivor" and "Wanderer" crates disappearing from the inventory should come soon.
  • "Lost Connection to Host" error is being addressed. Changes to the way matchmaking works should fix this.

It's great to see that Bluehole is focusing on Xbox One X performance. Hopefully the team will make the frame rate and visuals better on Microsoft's new console. What do you want to see fixed in PUBG? Let us know.

  • Aiming/shots registering could be crisper.
  • ...but overall the game is light-years beyond where it started. Other than occasional server issues and hitting invisible objects while driving sometimes, I have no problems anymore. What I really want is to just see the game become parallel to the PC version.
  • It may be lights years ahead of where it was, but it was in a horribly bad place. Don't get me wrong I enjoy it, but I do think that it's a long way behind other popular shooters like Rainbow Six Siege in terms of gun play, as it just doesn't feel smooth at all to me.
  • After playing several matches and giving the 1.0 release a chance, I’m perfectly content with never touching the game again. A paper thin experience, and precisely why I hate everything being focused around multiplayer. It’s an excuse to chince on the content delivered.
  • If you're not into multilayer, you probably should have never touched the game to begin with. They're not trying to short you on content, they literally started a new genre. If you want a campaign mode you should just look elsewhere.
  • They have much to fix. I am constantly put into TPP lobby after selecting FPP. And we need the ability to report other players, not only teammates. I'm certain, and have video of, hacks and cheats. They need to be banned.
  • Well personally what I'd like to see is fixes for the older console's especially.
    I own an S and my brother's and father own the standard model on both these model's the frsme rate can dip considerably aswell as enemies suddenly appearing out of the blue which can be annoying 😂.
    What i mean by this is i have played several matches where I've went into a building or a completely empty flat space no hiding spots and no enemies are present or nearby then suddenly i get killed by someone who was literally within melee distance.
    Now i know in an open plain this could possibly happen but not without a single sound.
    But in a building with only one door and maybe 2 window's all of which sre visible when my back is against a wall it shouldn't be possible for someone to appear behind me and shoot me in the back shouldn't be plausible under any normal circumstances.
  • I think the game plays well on my x and s. Had the game since day 1 and there have been massive improvements. Up to the point I do not get that many issues on botg my consoles. Only really ,lost connection to host problem
  • I only hop on this sluggish, glitch mess if I'm absolutely bored out of my mind, have NOTHING else to do, and if I don't really feel like gaming.
  • Please fix fpp on europe can't find enough players for a match!
  • do people really play this much? all I hear about is that fortnight
