Despite glaring technical problems, as can be expected with any Game Preview title, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds quickly became one of the most popular games on Xbox One after its release in December. Because it’s in Game Preview, the developer is continually adding features and issuing patches to fix bugs. The latest patch released today not only brings some much needed bug fixes, but it also adds first-person perspective (FPP) mode on Xbox One.
For now, FPP mode is being limited to solo players on North American, European, and Oceanic servers. As stated in its patch notes, other modes in the aforementioned regions will open up as concurrency allows.
The full patch notes on PUBG’s forums are as follows:
- Aim acceleration can now be adjusted by players via in-game option
- Player weapon damage has been increased against vehicles. We will continue to monitor player feedback and telemetry and make further balancing adjustments as needed in future updates
- FPP Solo matchmaking queue will be made available for NA/EU/and Oceanic servers. We will open other modes within those regions as concurrency allows
- Fixed an issue that caused indoor lighting and shadows to appear too dark and blueish
- Analog stick acceleration added while exiting the plane and while parachuting
- PhysX performance enhancements
- Server FPS slightly increased
- Client FPS slightly increased
- Some VFX received slight optimizations
- Music on/off option added
- Addressed a number of known crashes
- Fixed a UI issue that occurred when multiple players attempted to loot from the same source
As always, you’re encouraged to leave your feedback so the team can work on creating the best experience possible.
You can pick up PUBG for Xbox One on the Microsoft Store for $29.99.
