PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One gets its first patch tomorrow

3 min read


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
  • Player icon is now more clearly visible on the world map
  • UI prompts now appear when reload and enter a vehicle options are present


  • Tweaked hair color options


  • Cleaned up sidecar passenger animations in first person view
  • Fixed player camera issues while a passenger on the backseat of a Buggy
  • Addressed arm animations specific to holding some weapons
  • Character now correctly faces the proper direction when stopping while swimming

  • First pass visual and performance improvements
  • Slightly improved anti-aliasing on Xbox One and Xbox One S
  • Localization updates for Vietnamese, Spanish,(Spain/Mexico)
  • Controls on motorcycle no longer inverted
  • Keyboard functionality is disabled

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed instances of player nametags not properly displaying in the lobby during Squad and Duo play
  • Fixed minor animation while crouching and prone
  • Fixed issues where curtains on windows block line of sight of players in the TPP mode
  • Fixed an issue where when Squad leader left the party, voice chat ceased to function as intended
  • Fixed issue where players could lean out of vehicles even when obstructed
  • Fixed collision of cardboard boxes in Yasnaya city
  • Fixed typo in the controller guide
  • Other minor fixes

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.
