5 things to know about the new FIX PUBG initiative

09 August 2018

These details apply to the Xbox One version of the game, which is being continually updated as it moves to a bigger update later this year. This will last at least three months, according to the website, with character optimisation, server performance profiling optimisation, PUBG's combined anti-cheat solution, smarter matchmaking and quality-of-life being the primary headlines lasting until October.

"On the landing page, the team admit that "'Fix The Game' is a phrase that we've been hearing a lot lately".

"For the duration of the campaign, we'll be entirely focused on addressing problems with the game, including bugs, long-needed quality-of-life improvements and fundamental performance improvements".

The latest hotfix is said to improve sprinting on Xbox One, as well as loading. However, we haven't always been able to meet your expectations. "People who take a selfie with their ice cream and the van and post it online using the #PUBGVan hashtag will be entered into a competition to win prizes including Xbox Live codes, copies of PUBG and an Xbox One X, the most powerful console ever made".

As usual, the new patch targets issues players have noted with the game and seeks to address them - the two main targets this time are directional sprinting (addressing something that was introduced in a previous patch) and loading times when entering matches. "So we think it's time to do something about it". With average fps now at 60 or higher, PUBG Corp. will be looking to reduce hitches. PUBG also focusing on making its game just a bit more presentable, from making it possible for dead teammates to place markers to the inclusion of a colorblind mode.

This is "a months-long campaign to deliver the changes and improvements that you've been asking for", complete with a roadmap that the developer will be wading through as it promises to deliver.
