We’ve got some bad news for all PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds fans who own an Xbox One console: the game will run at 30 FPS across all consoles, including the Xbox One X.
After a few days of uncertainty, the news was officially confirmed on the game’s official Twitter page.
While I previously stated PUBG would run at higher FPS at XGP launch on 12/12, I want to clarify that PUBG will run at 30 FPS across all @Xbox One devices. We’re constantly refining the game & exploring options to increase FPS, but this early in dev, we’re unable to confirm more
This piece of news let down many Xbox One X owners who hopped they would enjoy the perfect PUBG gaming experience on the world’s most powerful console.
Many gamers bought Microsoft’s next-gen console especially for playing PUBG, but now bitterly regret their decision and are angry with PUBG’s devs for nerfing the Xbox One X version of the game simply because other console models can’t hit 60 FPS.
Perhaps this is a wise decision
To call a spade a spade, maybe PUBG’s developers don’t want Xbox One X owners to have the advantage of twice the frame rate.
Ideally, the game should offer an option for both consoles in order to satisfy all Xbox One players.
Indeed, the game’s FPS rate is currently limited on the Xbox One X, but not all hope is lost as the game’s developers confirmed they’re exploring alternative options to enhance FPS.
There are many popular games out there such as Call of Duty: WW2, Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2 and others that run at 60FPS on the Xbox One X, so peer pressure will eventually push PUBG’s devs to implement higher FPS as well.
What do you think about PUBG’s FPS limitation? Has this piece of news determined you to postpone getting the game or the Xbox One X for that matter?
