PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) Xbox One update brings various bug fixes

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) has received its latest update on Xbox One, delivering an assortment of fixes to its Xbox Game Preview version. Following a large patch earlier this month with tweaks to gameplay, the game's tenth update aims to crush bugs affecting player experiences.

Among the changes is a fix for player revivals continuing when disrupted and "B" and "Y" buttons still working while the map is open. Other issues addressed affect parachute deployment and several in-game sounds. Despite not bringing major changes to the PUBG experience, the hotfix should make for more consistent gameplay in the meantime.

The latest PUBG Xbox One update began rolling out at 4 a.m. ET (8 a.m. UK time), with servers offline for 30 minutes. Following this, players may be prompted to download the mandatory update. For a full breakdown of the update's changes, below is the official changelog as posted to the game's forums.

The servers will be in maintenance from 5PM KST / 1AM PDT / 9AM CET in preparation for the new patch. It will take about 30 minutes.

Please restart your Xbox after the patch goes live to get the update. Apologies for the inconvenience.
