Here’s How PUBG Runs On Xbox One X After The New Update

Updates for the early access version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One continue to roll out. The latest patch is now available and makes some technical improvements, adds some options, and fixes some bugs. We decided to put it through its paces on Xbox One X in our latest livestream.

As you can see in the video above, PUBG seems to be running smoother than ever on console, although it still suffers from framerate issues, even on the more powerful Xbox One X. You can see the new option in the settings menu to adjust aim acceleration (something that did not previously exist), and we managed to play without having the game crash. Developer PUBG Corp. said that “a number of known crashes” were addressed with this latest patch.

One other notable change is an increase to the damage players can deal against vehicles. As our own Nick Margherita describes early in the stream, vehicles were previously a safe haven for players on Xbox One. Whereas someone in a vehicle could easily be killed on PC, that was not the case previously on console, allowing vehicles to serve as an arguably cheap way of surviving the late stages of a round.

Following its debut in December, PUBG remains in the Xbox One’s early access Game Preview program. There’s no telling how long it will remain in this state; the PC version finally hit 1.0 in December, adding a new desert map and more. You can see what we think of that version in our PUBG review.
