PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One has its much needed first update

The most anticipated Xbox game of the year has arrived, although it seems it’s a little bit broken right now, doesn’t it? I guess that’s okay – it is a Game Preview title at the moment, after all. But let’s be honest, we expected more. At least Bluehole Studio has jumped right in to start trying to remedy the situation, with the first patch out now.

“We are glad players are enjoying PUBG in Xbox Game Preview and we appreciate all of the great feedback we’ve received,” said the PUBG forum community coordinator in a recent post. “We take listening and reacting to our player base seriously, and we will work with our community to find opportunity to continually improve the player experience while in “XGP” and beyond.”

This first update, as detailed on the official PUBG forum, has the usual list of bug fixes, animation tweaks and general repairs, but of particular interest is the vague mention of visual and performance improvements, and “slightly improved anti-aliasing on Xbox One and Xbox One S”. I’m looking forward to seeing what that translates to in action.

Read on for the full list.
