For months have passed since PUBG reached the Xbox Game Preview and developers have already released the 12th patch. They also revealed some exciting details on what gamers can look forward to in the upcoming months regarding updates and content.
The Xbox team has been working hard on improvements and bug patching alongside with lots of new features that were promised in the Xbox Spring roadmap. Here are the most interesting details recently released on PUBG’s forums.
Miramar is ready for Xbox
Miramar is the much-anticipated desert map, and it’s expected to launch on the test servers this month. It’s set to roll out to the general public in May, and the update that includes the map will also bring new vehicles and weapons as well along with gameplay optimizations.
Our art asset streaming process has been optimized. This will somewhat improve the “play-doh” effect on textures and will mitigate interior prop pop-in issues. This will make a big difference in the early phases of each game. Our character movement system was also causing some problems and has now been optimized. Performance and stability will be better even when many players gather in one location. We expect this to help out the game’s performance past the mid-phase.
Brand new and improved designs for out-of-game screens and menus
This update was necessary in order to prepare the servers for when custom and event matches will be introduced. So, expect to see some brand new designs hitting the menus and screens shortly.
The developers also noted that fixing crashes in basically their main priority and they’re working hard on this. Stability is the key element that triggers excellent gameplay quality so it definitely must be addressed as soon as possible.
The team confessed that it’s been tremendously challenging to bring a massive open world game to life on console and they’re working hard to meet gamers’ expectations from now on as well.
