PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds developer PUBG Corp. recently deployed a new update for the game on Xbox One. While the patch was primarily intended to adjust the amount of damage vehicles can inflict and receive, a slate of new issues arose following the update. PUBG Corp. has now released another patch for the game, rolling back the changes it made to vehicle damage and addressing a number of bugs.
The new update is a fairly minor one, as you’re able to glean from the patch notes below. Most notably, it reverts vehicle damage to the same levels they were prior to last week’s patch. “We received a lot of great feedback following the changes made to vehicle/player damage,” PUBG Corp. wrote on the game’s official forums. “We continue to tune and balance this element of gameplay, and are therefore reverting back to increased damage if a player is struck by a vehicle.”
Additionally, the new patch addresses a small handful of bugs. In particular, it fixes an issue that prevented players from vaulting over certain objects. Beyond that, vehicles will now no longer relocate to a different location on the map after you exit them, and the camera will “remain in the correct location following player death.”
You can read the patch notes for the latest PUBG Xbox One update below or on the game’s official website. PUBG has proven to be quite popular on the console, recently surpassing 4 million players. To celebrate the milestone, PUBG Corp. is offering players a gift of 30,000 Battle Points to use on in-game cosmetic items. Microsoft also announced a new Xbox One S bundle that includes PUBG; that will go on sale beginning February 20.
