Since its launch on the Xbox One Game Preview program last month, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has received a number of updates to improve the experience for players. The latest update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One, rolling out this week, will make some important changes to the game, such as nerfing vehicles.
Once PUBG players on Xbox One download the latest update, they will notice that vehicles take more damage. Furthermore, drivers and passengers in vehicles will take more damage when they smash into objects and other vehicles. Players hit by vehicles will take “slightly” less damage, though it will likely still result in near-instant death depending on how fast the vehicle is going.
Besides the vehicle nerf, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players can also look forward to slight visual improvements for reticles as well as a variety of bug fixes. The game still has a long way to go if it hopes to catch up to its PC counterpart, but these changes should still be welcomed by the community.
Since the game continues to increase in popularity on Xbox One, recently surpassing 4 million players on the platform, fans may be able to expect updates to come at an even faster rate. Future updates for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will further optimize the game on Xbox One, make changes to the starting area, and most significantly, add the new desert map Miramar. All of these updates are expected to come this year, so PUBG players on Xbox One have a lot to look forward to.
Not only is there more content on the way for the Xbox One version of the game, but PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players on Xbox One are also being gifted a whopping 30,000 battle points. Available to anyone who makes a character in PUBG by January 31, these battle points can be spent on loot crates, which are how players unlock new customization options in the game.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now for PC and on Xbox One through the Game Preview program.
