PUBG Corp. has pushed a new update live for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One that includes a number of optimizations and performance improvements.
“Since we recently verified some optimization and performance improvements on the recently launched on the Test Server, we’re now ready to bring these over to the live server,” the developer explained.
The update optimizes the free-fall and parachuting process to improve performance in the early game, optimizes world loading to reduce texture pop-in, improves movement data of out-of-sight players, and optimizes the inventory to improve response time and reduces crashes. Read the patch notes below:
- The free-fall and parachuting process has been optimized, leading to performance improvements during the initial stages of each game.
- World loading has been optimized. “Play-doh” and interior prop pop-in effects have been improved.
- Movement data for nearby but out-of-sight players is now handled in a more efficient manner, resulting in general performance improvements.
- Similarly, when nearby but out-of-sight players equip or unequip items, this process is handled in a more efficient manner. This helps with performance and crashes throughout the game.
- The inventory has been optimized, improving response time when opening it and solving some crashing issues.
- Uninhabited boats and vehicles were causing some performance issues, and we’ve resolved this issue.
The developer notes that an issue in this patch will cause the game to crash on the base Xbox One and Xbox One S during long play sessions. PUBG Corp. recommends restarting the game every couple of hours to avoid this.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now on Xbox One and PC.
