We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
A new update is now available for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One. This marks the second patch the popular battle royale game has received on Microsoft's console thus far, following a fairly big update that arrived earlier this week.
While the new patch isn't quite as large as PUBG's previous Xbox One update, it makes a number of quality-of-life improvements to further refine the console version, which doesn't run quite as well as on PC. In addition to addressing various crashing issues, the new PUBG update further tunes the gameplay. Recoil has now been reduced for all weapons on Xbox One, while the range for adjusting your preferred sensitivity has been expanded. The update also makes some more unspecified performance improvements. You can find the full patch notes below.
PUBG released in early access on Xbox One last week, and it's already proven to be very popular on the console. More than 1 million players played the game in its first 48 hours of availability, and Microsoft is bundling PUBG with its new Xbox One X for a limited time through the holidays. The game's previous console update made "first pass" improvements to visuals and performance, as well as a number of animation and bug fixes.
This week also marked PUBG's 1.0 release on PC after being available in Early Access of nine months. The 1.0 release brings many new mechanics to the game, such as climbing and vaulting, which PUBG creator Brendan Greene says "will change the game severely." It also introduces a new desert map called Miramar, which will also be added to the Xbox One version in a future update. You can read more about the 1.0 release in our PUBG review.
