PUBG gets it’s First Update on December 19th

News Xbox Game Preview Xbox One Xbox One S Xbox One X

It’s great fun, and the TiX team have had many heart-in-mouth gameplay moments over the last week, but it’s also fair to say that PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds has its technical issues at this early stage of release. Let’s not forget that it is also an Xbox Game Preview title, so it’s not expected to be perfect at this stage.

However, today – December 19th – sees the first big update to PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds on the Xbox One. The developer has released the patch notes and was also quoted as saying “We are glad players are enjoying PUBG in Xbox Game Preview and we appreciate all of the great feedback we’ve received. 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”
