PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Xbox One patch improves framerate

The latest Xbox One patch for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds addresses framerate issues as well as looking at weapon balance and vehicle damage.

Framerate problems have been consistent on the console, with Xbox One X users experiencing much better gameplay compared to One S players, but this patch hopes to fix the problem a bit.

A blog post explains a little more behind the features within the patch. “The team has been working diligently to elevate the overall player experience, as well as listen and react to our community feedback.

“Below you will find quality of life fixes, as well as our efforts to resolve known memory crashes, and incremental improvements to performance.

“Given the complexity of some of the crashes that have been logged, we know there is still work remaining in order for us to reproduce and address all remaining issues. Crash fixes, like all areas of the game, will be something we continue to improve upon as part of our Xbox Game Preview roadmap.”

Take a look at the patch notes below:
