Ever since it released, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has been one of the most popular video games on the market. And while it still maintains a huge player base, games like Fortnite BR and other Battle Royale genre games have started to take players away from it. One of the key reasons for that can be found in the poor gameplay, framerate issue, and numerous other bugs that PUBG tends to run into.
Earlier this week, PUBG Corp revealed how they hoped to address this issues, stating a patch would be implemented next week to improve issues such as movement, lag, textures and teamkilling.
- Analog movement has been a popular request and it’s going to be patched in next week. The current movement system resembles playing with a keyboard, where the character is only able to move in eight directions. With analog movement, players will be able to move freely in 360 degrees with the left thumbstick on the Xbox One controller.
- The “PUBG Official Club”, a new messaging platform for a wider audience, will launch on Xbox One in early August. This seems to be the result of the changes Microsoft is making to the “Game Hub” function.
- Teamkilling players will be banned for up to two weeks for repeated offenses.
- A ping-based matchmaking system is coming soon which should reduce the instances of desyncing lag.
- Detailed textures will load faster on Xbox One X.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the update next week. In the meantime, check back to the site for all of our other nerdy news and needs as well!
