First PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Patch Arrives on Xbox One

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) developer, PUBG Corp. has released the first big patch for the Xbox One version of the game which is set to bring a number of improvements.

Some of these improvements are for both general gameplay as well as performance – and heaven know’s the game needs some performance upgrades. Some of the more notable additions is the ability to use gas on a bike or in a sidecar, equipment icons are now also visible on the HUD, as well as player icons being more visible on the world map.

As for performance, anti-aliasing for both the original Xbox One and Xbox One S has arrived, as well as controls for the motorcycle being no longer inverted. They’ve also patched out the ability to plug a keyboard into their Xbox One and view the game’s PC settings.

And that’s pretty much it. The full patch list for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One can be found below. Considering the game launched a little over a week ago, it’s good to see that updates and patches are already on their way, even if they’re quite small. Little and often though, eh?
