New PUBG Xbox One Patch Launches, Features FPP Solo Mode and Frame Rate Improvements

New Battlegrounds Xbox One update also fixes numerous PUBG Xbox One bugs and crashes.

A new patch is available for Playerunknown's Battlegrounds on the Xbox One, which aims to fix issues like bugs and crashes, as well as make the solo FPP mode available for the first time on console. You might also see a slight improvement to PUBG Xbox One's frame rate.

The full patch notes for the Xbox preview program version of PUBG can be found over on the Battlegrounds forums, but you can find the main fixes to the gameplay aspect of Battlegrounds listed out just below:

  • Aim acceleration can now be adjusted by players via in-game option.
  • Player weapon damage has been increased against vehicles.
  • FPP Solo matchmaking queue will be made available for NA/EU/and Oceanic servers.
  • Fixed an issue that caused indoor lighting and shadows to appear too dark and blueish.
  • Analog stick acceleration added while exiting the plane and while parachuting.

Note that while the FPP solo mode is the first addition to Battlegrounds on the Xbox One for the North American, European, and Oceanic servers, Bluehole has stated that additional modes will be arriving on those same servers in the future, as soon as "concurrency allows".

Aside from this, you can find a list of optimization patches for the Xbox One edition of PUBG just below:

  • PhysX performance enhancements
  • Server FPS slightly increased
  • Client FPS slightly increased
  • Some VFX received slight optimizations

According to the official post from the dev team on the Battlegrounds forums, the patch will be available for all players after a roughly half hour period of maintenance, which is scheduled to start at 1 am PST/4 am EST on January 8. If this all goes according to plan, then the PUBG patch should be available right around 1:30 am PST/4:30 am EST.
