PUBG Patch Adds First-Person Mode on Xbox One

PUBG Patch Adds First-Person Mode on Xbox One

Without a doubt, one of the most popular features to be incorporated into the PC version of Bluehole Studio’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was the addition of a first-person mode, as it brought about a new layer of immersion into the game. Now, fans on Xbox One will be able to take part in the title’s First Person Perspective (FPP) mode thanks to a brand new patch from the developer.

At the moment, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ FPP mode is only available to be played solo on Xbox One, with group servers likely to be added at some point in the future. As of now, FPP servers for the console version of PUBG will be deployed in North America, Europe, and Oceania.

As one might expect, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ latest patch on Xbox One not only incorporates the long-awaited First Person Perspective mode, but it also improves client and server performance, while also bringing fixes to crashes. Naturally, these are incredibly important refinements to be made, but the FPP mode will be the main draw for many fans of PUBG.

Finally, the patch for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds also adds analog stick acceleration when jumping out of the plane and while parachuting. For many, the experience had previously felt painful to experience due to issues with the Xbox One version’s performance, and the fact that using the sticks didn’t offer any way to speed up and get to the ground faster than the competition. For a complete list of the patch’s contents, check out the rundown toward the end of the article.

Taking all of this into consideration, it’s great to see Bluehole Studio bringing another feature that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds fans on both PC and Xbox One can enjoy. Without a doubt, the inclusion of the First Person Perspective mode on the console version of the game will help bring more attention to the title overall and potentially pull some Xbox fans away from their time with PUBG competitor Fortnite.
