PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) Test Server makes another Xbox One return

Tests are underway for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) on Xbox One once again, via the game's dedicated Test Server. Following two previous trials for the upcoming "Miramar" desert map, access to forthcoming content has been returned.

The PUBG Test Server for Xbox One (opens in new tab) provides an early glimpse at updates on their way to the public Xbox Game Preview version. Through this isolated platform, the game's development has the freedom to experiment with content, changes, and performance tweaks, without affecting the wider player base.

For the third return of the Xbox Test Server, the build will be playable for almost three days, concluding at the start of next week. While a detailed changelog hasn't been provided, expect minor changes, if any, over previous testing sessions. Below is a breakdown of the weekend schedule, as detailed on the game's official Xbox forum.

  • The test server is so much better in game quality with just environment rendering alone at the beginning of the game and load times.
  • Rendering has been fine for a while on the original map, but that's with a One X, I've heard it's still bad on the original X One. Aim movement is out of control on the new map. I had to turn. Sensitivity almost all the way down.
  • Glad it's not just me. Was in a squad and two of us were feeling the same, thought we were going mad. Messed about with it and ended up not being able to move vertically while ADS. It's a hot mess.
