PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is certainly playable on Xbox One, but it’s a far cry from the game as it is on PC right now. Graphics and performance issues abound, the UI is a bit of a mess and the controls take more than a little getting used to. But! It’s a preview game, which means that it’s nowhere near being done, and will be getting a billion or so patches before it’s considered a retail game.

That first patch has just been announced – and it’ll go live tomorrow, at 12 in the afternoon for those of us in SA. That’s 1AM PST / 10AM CET / 6PM KST.

The patch will include performance updates, but only first pass ones – so don’t expect it to suddenly run much better. It’ll also remove the keyboard shortcuts that shouldn’t have been there in the first place.

Here’re the patch notes:

  • Gas can now be used while on bike or bike with sidecar

  • Equipment icons on HUD will now be visible

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
