PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Update 4 Out For Xbox One, Patch Notes Revealed

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still a part of the Xbox Game Preview Program that covers both the Xbox One and Xbox One X version of the game. While the game is essentially an early access release on Xbox One, it has received the final release on PC with version 1.0 last month.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still getting patches from the developers after releasing early in December. It has received a total of 4 updates so far with the latest one releasing today. The patch notes for Update 4 can be read below and they also mention ‘incremental improvements to performance’ for the game.

Thank you for your enthusiastic feedback and support as we transitioned into 2018.

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.

Gameplay

  • Aim acceleration can now be adjusted by players via in-game option
  • Player weapon damage has been increased against vehicles.  We will continue to monitor player feedback and telemetry and make further balancing adjustments as needed in future updates
  • FPP Solo matchmaking queue will be made available for NA/EU/and Oceanic servers. We will open other modes within those regions as concurrency allows
  • Fixed an issue that caused indoor lighting and shadows to appear too dark and blueish
  • Analog stick acceleration added while exiting the plane and while parachuting
