If you're used to playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) on the PC then moving to the Xbox One is a much toned down experience. However, even for a first preview release, initially it's been pretty solid.
However, there's one thing that keeps happening to us that could also be happening to you and making things extra laggy: Your server choice.
I'm in Europe, and I want to use the Europe server. Because that's how I'll get the best time. But every time the game boots up fresh, it seems to reset to North America. If you haven't been looking, the same could be happening to you and be introducing Mr. Lag to your game.
To change the server is simple.
- Press the menu button on your controller when at the start menu (seen above).
- Choose your server.
- Look for a region changed message to confirm it worked. Also check the bottom right corner.
Now things should be working a lot better. Of course, we don't yet know how the servers are going to hold up with the initial influx of very eager players, but making sure you're on the right region is going to give you the best chance to enjoy your chicken.
