Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds Latest Patch Detailed

Since the release of the PC smash hit PUBG on Xbox One back in December via the game preview program, sales have surpassed three million. An amazing achievement for essentially a game still being optimised. And with it, the developers have released regular updates as they strive to make the game the best that can be.

The latest is the sixth patch in as many weeks, and you can check out the full patch notes below:

  • ·         Fixed a camera issue created by unintended Aim Down Sights and Free Look interactions

A variety of issues catered for as always. From personal experiences the game now has less ‘rubber banding’ and crashes in general. However it appears that performance crashes may be more prominent with the original Xbox and not the Xbox One X as much.
