PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds


 

While Xbox One’s version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds are still waiting for the game’s second map, Miramar, to finally go live on the full Game Preview version, PUBG Mobile players are already enjoying the desert-themed map on their phones.

PUBG Mobile just released update 0.5.0, which already includes Miramar, even though PUBG Mobile launched globally a mere two months ago. In fact, the entire update is fairly beefy, including a new competitive season, new progress missions, the ability to region-lock matchmaking, the ability to form local quick teams, and a new secret stash of cosmetic items, according to an official tweet.

If you’re an Xbox One PUBG player and you’re feeling a little left out, it sounds like Miramar is very close to getting an Xbox One launch. Microsoft executive producer Nico Bihary, who’s been the main contact between the game’s developer and the Xbox One community, recently tweeted that the new update is headed to Xbox test servers sometime this week, meaning that the update should make it to the main game client within a week of that.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like all the game’s issues will be fixed with this next update. Texture load-in and “Play-Doh” textures are glaring issues that have been a problem ever since the Xbox One version launched, and it sounds like developer PUBG Corp. is still working on a fix.

PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds is available on PC, Xbox One, and mobile.

PUBG Mobile now officially has more maps than PUBG on Xbox One

Don't worry, PUBG Xbox One players. Your time will come someday.
