The Xbox One version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds launched with a heavily revised interface and some issues with its performance. Work has already been done to improve how the game runs on Microsoft’s console, but it’s still a long way from feeling optimized.
Today’s patch should help with that issue, as well as introduce some improvements to the game’s inventory system.
“The team’s efforts on ‘Patch 11’ have been focused on continued performance optimization, and stability improvements across the family of Xbox consoles,” the patch notes state. “We are also introducing changes to inventory management, in an effort to increase the speed at which players can navigate menus and change their loadout.”
Here are the biggest adjustments in today’s patch:
Performance / Optimization / Stability
Implemented texture changes to improve graphical performance
Optimized vehicle profiles to improve frame rate
Additional fixes to reduce crashes
The layout of the inventory has been improved, adding focal points to identify selected areas, a clearer button guide and tooltips
Improved selection of weapon slots and attachments - players can change the focus and selection by using the D-Pad
Quick scrolling has been added by using LT/RT buttons
More work will be done to improve how the game runs on the Xbox One and the Xbox One X in the coming months, according to the official roadmap.
“To put it bluntly, we are simply not satisfied with the game’s current console performance, and especially so during tense moments of onscreen action,” an official forum post from March 8 explained. “We have found some immediate opportunity to increase frame rate through changes to Erangel’s building materials, as well as some reduction to in-game foliage composition. Until we are completely satisfied in the quality and reliability of the experience, efforts to optimize performance will be an ongoing hi-priority issue.”
