Today's PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) patch on Xbox One focuses on performance improvements

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 patch which focuses on improving performance and reducing memory usage. Keep in mind that this doesn't mean that all the problems will be gone. PUBG Corp. is working hard to fix others as soon as possible.

The main changes are listed below.

  • The developer has optimized the total memory required by maps, with a significant reduction in total memory required for Miramar.
  • The interface has been optimized to use less resources.
  • Character movement has been optimized to use less resources and improve performance.
  • Vehicle location updates have been made more efficient for stationary vehicles to improve performance.
  • Vehicle effects have been optimized to improve performance, without affecting visual quality.
  • Bullet impact effects will no-longer consume resources if they aren't seen by the player.
  • Character shadow rendering has been optimized to improve performance.
  • Terrain and grass have been optimized on maps to increase performance.
  • Parachutes have been optimized, they now use less resources.
  • The physics while free falling have been optimized.

Hopefully this patch will 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.
