Fix PUBG Campaign Launches To Address Problems As Developer Issues Roadmap

Fix PUBG Campaign Launches To Address Problems As Developer Issues Roadmap

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds developer PUBG Corp has announced "Fix PUBG", a campaign created to, well, fix the battle royale. It seems that developer PUBG Corp agrees with this assessment, pledging its latest efforts to improving Battlegrounds' quality-of-life under a new campaign called "FIX PUBG".

Launched in Early Access past year and released fully in December after the original schedule was pushed back, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been an impressive success - and the trigger behind the explosion of interest in the battle royale format, where numerous players compete in an ever-shrinking arena to kill each other with scavenged weapons until only one is left standing. "We'll deliver on our promises" the post reads.

As usual, the new patch targets issues players have noted with the game and seeks to address them - the two main targets this time are directional sprinting (addressing something that was introduced in a previous patch) and loading times when entering matches.

The company also included a list of changes it already plans to make based on player feedback. A quick glance shows some confusing graphs, but highlights that PUBG Corp is aware of things like server stability, geometry streaming, anti-cheat implementation and bug fixing.

Graphics "sharpening" will be added as separate toggle in the settings.

Quality-of-life improvements are coming to colorblind mode.

You'll also be able to set your in-game FPS cap and lobby FPS cap separately. In order to find the van, you'll need to keep an eye out on the Xbox UK social media accounts. Or at least get fixed.

Last week, PUBG Corp. issued a statement about when we could see the next map drop on Xbox One consoles, too. While I won't hold my breath on these fixes, it is nice to see confirmation from the devs that its game isn't flawless.
