    Hi everybody, It’s been four months since PUBG hit Xbox Game Preview and we’ve just released patch #12. Our Xbox team has been constantly working on optimizations and bugfixes, alongside all the features we promised in the Xbox spring roadmap. Today we want to share a little more about the content drops and improvements we’ll be shipping to PUBG over the next couple of months. After extensive efforts, we’ve been able to get Miramar ready for Xbox. Miramar will be coming to test servers before the end of April, and we expect it’ll hit live servers sometime in May. The Miramar test server update will also include new vehicles and weapons, alongside several crucial gameplay optimizations. Here are just two examples: Our art asset streaming process has been optimized. This will somewhat improve the “play-doh” effect on textures and will mitigate interior prop pop-in issues. This will make a big difference in the early phases of each game. Our character movement system was also causing some problems, and has now been optimized. Performance and stability will be better even when many players gather in one location. We expect this to help out the game’s performance past the mid-phase. Expect to also see new and improved designs for out-of-game menus and screens. The update is necessary to prepare our servers for when event matches and custom matches are introduced later on. Finally, improving crashes is our highest priority. Simply put, stability is the most basic element that determines gameplay quality, so we’re taking it seriously and focusing on it with every patch. All of these changes will hit the test server first so we can make sure the above-mentioned optimizations run well before pushing them to live. It's been a significant challenge for our team to bring a massive open world game like PUBG to life on console, and we're working hard to staff up our development resources so we can invest more in the game and the community. The feedback we get from players is great motivation for us, so we want to say: thank you. Thanks for your feedback, your patience and your support throughout this journey. With love, PUBG Corp.

    Hello Xbox players, Both Microsoft and PUBG Corp remain committed to delivering the best PUBG console experience possible. Over the next few months of development we trust that you will see meaningful improvements to optimizations, new content additions, compelling reasons to play, and refinements to the overall console experience. These improvements and areas of focus comprise our Spring Xbox PUBG Roadmap. To service our Roadmap, we will be transitioning to a longer 2-3 week cycle in-between patches, with our goal to ensure we are consistently releasing well tested improvements to the current Live version of the game. Spring Xbox Roadmap: Continued performance optimizations: To put it bluntly, we are simply not satisfied with the games current console performance, and especially so during tense moments of onscreen action. We have found some immediate opportunity to increase framerate 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. Here are some of the specific technical areas we have made changes: Optimized game characters and their movements Optimized the number of particle effects that are spawned by vehicles and grenades Optimized object collision complexity Balanced the game work across all CPU cores to reduce streaming hitches when moving UI optimizations: Our goal is that PUBG stands up well when compared to other games in your collection, and this comparison begins the second you boot up the game. HDR and Safe Zone options, the quality of the individual assets, the speed at which they load and how they react to your selection are all things we will improve upon as we move towards creating a premium and higher quality experience. Improve Inventory UX: We receive a ton of feedback around the usability of the title, particularly when it comes to navigating the inventory UI. PUBG is a complicated game to control, and when you factor the risk versus reward of inventory management in high pressure situations, the interface must be intuitive and responsive. We are working towards that goal, and we have some changes coming that we hope will allow players to action the decisions they want to make, faster. Improvements to Console Controller Options: We will be providing additional preset configurations to choose from as well as exposing a wider set of aiming options, providing players more freedom to create a controller experience that feels satisfying and empowering. Improvements to game matchmaking: To support a fair and competitive environment, we plan to further improve matchmaking for Duo and Squad modes. Console Player Reporting Features: We are hoping to streamline reporting by adding in-game tools that will empower players to more quickly submit instances of unsporting behavior (Solo Teaming, Team Killing etc). Updates to Vehicle Penetration: To promote a greater sense of realism, we will be applying bullet penetration to our vehicle system. Our current model can be viewed as a vehicles body having a life bar that must be reduced before the driver can be damaged. When our update is released, players that are skillful with their shots, can pierce vehicle doors and panels, damaging enemy players and ensuring that threat is constant even for those behind the wheel. Game Highlights: We want players to easily capture and share in-game actions of interest, so we have integrated Game Highlights functionality on Xbox. Achievements: We have some great ideas for those players that like an added challenge, and we will be rolling out our achievement criteria as part of our roadmap. Sound: We’re going to continue improvements to audio quality and directional sound. Customization: We will add in-game Player Customization Options, emotes and more. We want to offer a wide range of options for you to customize your character in style. Test server: In advance of major upcoming patch releases, we will be making available to players a separate PUBG Xbox Download client. There, players can participate in our latest content updates before they are moved to “Live”. Miramar is coming to Xbox early spring!!! Thank you, The PUBG Development & Community Team

    Hi folks, Since we recently verified some optimization and performance improvements on the recently launched on the Test Server, we’re now ready to bring these over to the live server. PATCH TIMING: May 2, 1am PDT / May 2, 10am CEST / May 2, 5pm KST PATCH CONTENT: These optimization and performance improvements have been proven to be effective on the PUBG test server, so we’re bringing them over to live servers now. The free-fall and parachuting process has been optimized, leading to performance improvements during the initial stages of each game. World loading has been optimized. “Play-doh” and interior prop pop-in effects have been improved. Movement data for nearby but out-of-sight players is now handled in a more efficient manner, resulting in general performance improvements. Similarly, when nearby but out-of-sight players equip or unequip items, this process is handled in a more efficient manner. This helps with performance and crashes throughout the game. The inventory has been optimized, improving response time when opening it and solving some crashing issues. Uninhabited boats and vehicles were causing some performance issues, and we’ve resolved this issue. KNOWN ISSUE: After long play sessions (three or more hours) on the standard Xbox One and the Xbox One S, the game sometimes crashes. This has been a problem for some time, and we hope to solve it soon. In the meantime, there’s a simple workaround you can use. Simply restart the app every couple of hours if you plan on playing a longer play session. TEST SERVER NEWS: Soon we’ll announce more details about our plans for additional testing on the Xbox Test Server. Stay tuned! Love, The PUBG Xbox Team

    PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS Official Forum Guidelines While there are a number of rules you’re required to read and understand to participate on these forums, there are some rather simple ways you can safely avoid breaking them. Contribute Constructively Keep your posts on-topic, both for the sub-forum and the thread in which you’re posting. Give feedback that can contribute to a conversation. Respect your fellow forum-goers, even when you disagree with them. Be Friendly and Polite Be good to one another. Don’t insult anyone directly, including the PUBG Corp. staff. Don’t publicly call out other users or players. Don’t use hate speech of any kind, including (but not limited to) hate speech related to ethnicity, race, sexuality, gender, life choice, political inclination or slurs of any kind. Penalties for Violating Forum Guidelines Keep in mind that these penalties aren’t mutually dependent. Users can be suspended or banned without warning if an infraction is severe enough. Light warning – For first-time offenses which are very minor, such as a comment which is off-topic but was made in good faith , or a duplicate forum post, a light warning will be issued, frequently in the form of a public mod response. These comments may apply to multiple forum users in the case where multiple off-topic comments have been made which threaten to derail a thread. If users continue to take threads off-topic after a warning, then harsher punishments may be issued. Warning – If a post or comment isn’t both constructive and on-topic, the poster will get a system warning. This warning is an account-flag which will go away after some period of time, depending on the situation. Suspension – A warning is not required before temporary suspension occurs. Depending on the nature of the infraction, a temporary suspension can last anywhere from a week to several months. Ban – Again, a warning/suspension is not required ahead of time depending on what the user posted. A user that has been suspended in the past will very likely be permabanned upon further infraction. Moderators are present on these forums to maintain the community and ensure all players are encouraged to participate here. If it’s decided that you’re being destructive in any way, a punishment will be issued. When you first join the forum, until your reach 10 legitimate posts, you will be restricted from posting in certain areas. This is done to give newcomers time to get acquainted with the forum structure before they post another "how to use ads?" topic in General Discussion.

    Hi folks, The test server is back! This time around we’re planning to run the test for just three days. Depending on how the test goes, we may decide to extend it further. The test includes both Miramar and Erangel so we can test our matchmaking systems before bringing Miramar to live servers. That means that whenever you select a queue, the game will randomly drop you into one of the two possible maps. After we’ve tested our matchmaking systems, we may again adjust the map settings. Eventually, map selection will come to Xbox. It may simply take some time to bring it over. TEST SCHEDULE: Day One May 5, 5am PDT – May 5, 11pm PDT May 5, 2pm CEST – May 6, 8am CEST Day Two May 6, 8am PDT – May 6, 11pm PDT May 6, 5pm CEST – May 7, 8am CEST Day Three May 7, 8am PDT – May 7, 11pm PDT May 7, 5pm CEST – May 8, 8am CEST AVAILABLE QUEUES: [updated 05/06/2018] Miramar only Solo, Duo, Squad - FPP/TPP For now, we’re only opening up FPP servers for squads. This is because we’re concerned about splitting the matchmaking pool up too much. If it turns out that we have enough players on the test server, we’ll consider opening up FPP servers for both solos and duos. PATCH CHANGES: Settings menu changes: Game settings are now grouped up by category. Colorblind settings have been added Crosshair settings have been added Added a new slider interface Added an option to adjust strength of game controller vibration. Added an option to set deadzone for the left analog stick. Aim acceleration can now be completely disabled if set to 0. Those of you who previously set it to “0” may want to set it to “1” to preserve the feel from previous patches. The game controller function guide has been updated. Scopes have been changed to be more realistic: Expanded all scopes’ field of view Added a parallax effect when moving weapons quickly Added vignetting (darker edges), chromatic aberration (color difference caused by light refraction), and a distortion effect on the edge of scopes Out-of-game menus and UX improvements: The “cancel matchmaking” UI has been improved. You can now cancel matchmaking by holding the X button on any screen except the SETTINGS menu We improved the UI that indicates that matchmaking is in progress. Progress time is now displayed. When a match is found, a countdown will appear Transition speed between menus has been increased Two new menu items have been added: CUSTOMIZATION and STORE. To get a box, go to STORE > CRATES To open the box you’ve received, go to MY ITEMS in STORE On test servers, the number of boxes that can be purchased per week has been increased significantly (up to 100) After launching the game, a single, simplified loading screen pops up before the lobby appears (instead of many different screens) A few more miscellaneous changes: Emotes have been added. Emote UI will show up if you press the LB+RB buttons at the same time. Choose an emote with the right analog stick and press down with the R stick to use the selected emote. We added some contextual on-screen popups that explain button functions. Added new grenade hit effects and animations We’ve removed the grenade’s knockback effect for player characters when dealing non-lethal damage (if players are killed by a grenade, they’ll still be knocked back) Bug fixes There was a bug causing players to sometimes get stuck in a leaning position (caused by going prone while leaning). This is now fixed. Fixed an issue causing punching to slow down movement while sprinting Player can no longer see through walls by going prone near houses with stone steps in Miramar In spectator mode, water sounds sometimes inappropriately continued after changing perspective. This has now been fixed When preparing to throw grenades, the projection visualization no longer inappropriately penetrates through objects Known issue: After long play sessions (three or more hours) on the standard Xbox One and the Xbox One S, the game sometimes crashes. This has been a problem for some time, and we hope to solve it soon. In the meantime, there’s a simple workaround you can use. Simply restart the app every couple of hours if you plan on playing a longer play session. Bug Bounty Program: As announced previously, we’ll give rewards to 150 players who report bugs on the Xbox Test Server. To submit your bugs, just use this link before the bug bounty program ends on 5/14. Please visit the Bug Bounty FAQ for more information. We’ll also give two Militia Crates to everyone who participated in the test! These will be distributed sometime after the test closes. Thanks so much for playing, and we look forward to your feedback! With love, The PUBG Xbox Team

    Hello everyone, The May update is a major update focused on improvements to stability and optimization, as well as the addition of Miramar. The PUBG Xbox team has been constantly monitoring and reviewing your feedback from both the live servers and PTS. We are constantly focusing on improving service stability and game optimization. Some examples of problems which we are improving this patch are: Situations where the characters get stuck in the yet-to-be-loaded interior pop-ins. Situations where objects (especially buildings) were rendering too slow for users to enter. The May update adds a highly predictive-based loading system, which improves the system's overall performance in order to facilitate more advanced and optimized map loading. It will change the priority of the loading process, which will improve loading of the area where the player decides to land. This, as well as other improvements have been made to make loading of the map, objects and players a smoother experience overall. This system will become more effective as data is accumulated and as time goes on, you will experience more optimized and stabilized gameplay. In addition, we’ve collected about 1,500 bug reports (including redundancies) from the past 4 PTS tests. Also, issues that may cause problems in the Live Server have been fixed in the May Update build. Community feedback on the May update will also be monitored and reviewed to help improve future patches. We thank all the testers who participated actively in PTS. Optimization / Stabilization Both Miramar and Erangel have significantly improved overall game performance on the Xbox One/S/X and stability has also been improved. Optimization and stabilization is still the dev team’s top priority. Our goal is to deliver constant improvements. The free-fall and parachuting process has been optimized, leading to performance improvements during the initial stages of each game. The world loading process has been optimized, allowing buildings and their interiors to load simultaneously and reducing the overall rendering time. The handling of resources for unseen nearby characters’ movements has been optimized to improve performance of the game. Handling resources of equipping and unequipping items of unseen nearby characters have been optimized to improve performance during the early game and to reduce the likelihood of crashes Character inventory loading has been optimized, improving response time when opening inventory and reducing crashing. Unoccupied vehicles/boats have been optimized to increase the overall performance of the game. Contents New map, ‘Miramar’ has been added. Miramar will be available from: May 24 00:00 PDT / May 24 09:00 CEST Miramar is intentionally designed to provide a vastly different Battle Royale experience. It features extreme, elevated terrain and tall buildings with less trees which will give players new options for playing around cover. The characteristics of ‘on road’ and ‘off road’ have been further differentiated. This will make the selection of vehicle type and decision to drive more critical/important. New items are available on Miramar. R45 is a revolver handgun which is available as world spawn It uses 45 ACP Ammo and up to six bullets can be loaded Red dot sights can be equipped Damage and accuracy rate is high and reload speed is faster than R1895 The Win 94 is a lever-action rifle It uses 45 ACP Ammo and up to 8 bullets can be loaded It can attach bullet loops It inflicts severe damage and it is a mid-range weapon suitable for high level players. The sawed-off is a small shotgun It uses 12 gauge ammo and up to 2 bullets can be loaded This shotgun can inflict severe damage and equips to the handgun slot in the inventory A recolored version of the Ghillie suit has been added New vehicles have been added on Miramar: The mini bus is a six-seater on-road vehicle, available on Miramar only. Its top speed and torque are low but it has strong durability The pick-up truck is a four-seater off-road vehicle, available on Miramar only. It has a great suspension system and powerful torque, making it suitable for terrain with extreme elevation differences. The motorbike and buggy have new skins on Miramar Gameplay Features Emotes have been added. Emote UI will show up if you press the LB+RB buttons at the same time. Choose an emote with the right analog stick and press down with the R stick to use the selected emote. Scopes have been changed to be more realistic: Expanded all scopes’ field of view Added a parallax effect when moving weapons quickly while ADS Added vignetting (darker edges), chromatic aberration (color difference caused by light refraction), and a distortion effect on the edge of scopes Aim acceleration can now be turned off in settings. Setting menu has been specially improved for Xbox platform. Colorblind mode and other modes that could help the gameplay have been added. We’ve removed the grenade’s knockback effect for player characters when dealing non-lethal damage (if players are killed by a grenade, they’ll still be knocked back) Added new grenade hit effects and animations ‘Key legends’ function has been added for gameplay controls. It can be turned off in settings. Outgame Lobby loading screen is now more clean. Matchmaking can be started in the PLAY menu after selecting the game mode. Map selection will be added soon Matchmaking UI has been improved, allowing more pleasant entrance into the game. REWARDS menu has been changed to STORE menu. Go to CRATES in STORE menu to get crates. Go to MY ITEMS in STORE menu to open the crates you obtained. Game option settings can now be popped up. Leaderboard display method has been modified, allowing users below certain ranks to see their ranks in percentage. Lobby UI overall has been improved. Bugfixes Fixed an issue causing punching to slow down movement while sprinting In spectator mode, water sounds sometimes inappropriately continued after changing perspective. This has now been fixed When preparing to throw grenades, the projection visualization no longer inappropriately penetrates through objects You can now freelook while automatically swimming forward in water Sights should no longer become blocked while in ADS position after attaching high-magnification scopes Fixed an issue preventing some teammates’ map markers from showing on the compass Fixed some problems preventing interacting pop-ups from functioning properly in certain situations Fixed the problem preventing players from changing seats in vehicles Fixed the problem wherein turning off BGM in the lobby setting window didn’t work There was a bug causing players to sometimes get stuck in a leaning position (caused by going prone while leaning). This is now fixed. We hope you enjoy the update and we look forward to reading all of your feedback. Signed,The PUBG Xbox Team

    Hi folks, As of tomorrow, Patch #12 will hit live servers. This time around we’ve got some crucial bug fixes and optimizations for various parts of the game. Optimization and Stabilization Partially optimized the vehicle system. The dust effect caused by friction with the ground during driving has especially been optimized, and the vehicle system has been improved in part. Fixed a problem with voice chat that caused some crashes. Grass objects in Erangel have been optimized and will continue to be optimized going forward. Gameplay Fixed a serious bug that caused vehicles to flip or get airtime for no reason. This includes the three-wheel bike. Fixed an issue where under certain circumstances the character would be upside down or seated in a strange position when moving seats while riding in vehicles. Player will receive more damage in a vehicle collision. The heavier the vehicle, the greater the damage inflicted upon the player. Also, players are now more likely to die or be knocked out when colliding with a vehicle running at high speed. The vehicle passenger will receive more damage when the vehicle crashes into an obstacle like a wall or tree. When crashing into something at high speed on a smaller vehicle, such as a motorcycle, the player will take much more damage. Fixed issue causing the 4x scope to be excessively reflective. UI/UX Fixed issue causing certain UI layouts not being properly aligned. Fixed issue of buttons bound to the UI(map, inventory etc.) affecting vehicle operation. Fixed issue of equipment icons not shown properly on the HUD. Fixed issue of LT, RT scrolling not working in the inventory when using controller preset B. Fixed issue of excessive acceleration when the stick is tilted more than a certain angle depending on the R stick acceleration setting. Fixed issue of team member indicators incorrectly showing on the plane Other Bug Fixes Removed collision of discarded magazine on the floor after reloading. Fixed a cosmetic bug that occurred when characters wore certain clothing or shoes. Fixed issue of fonts breaking up in case of certain languages. Scheduled fixes for identified issues When changing the deadzone settings in the lobby, the options screen needs to be opened once again for the settings to be reflected. This issue will be fixed soon. Cosmetics Added a new free crate ("Western Military Crate") that can be earned with BP. Below is the list of items that can you can get from the Western Military Crate Drop Rates. Items Drop rates Tank Top (Gray) 20% Raglan T-shirt (Red/White) 20% Polo Shirt (Pink) 20% Vintage Polo Shirt 20% Military Shirt (Gray) 6.5% Military Trousers (Black) 6.5% Long Sleeved Turtleneck (Black) 3% Utility Belt (Brown) 1.4% Camo Tank Top (Red) 1.4% Military Boots (Black) 0.4% Battle Belt 0.28% Vintage Gas Mask 0.28% Leather Bootcut Pants 0.08% Military Jacket (Black) 0.05% Military Cap (Black) 0.05% Cowboy Hat (Brown) 0.028% Faux Leather Jacket 0.0128% Cowboy Hat (White) 0.0128% Military Skirt (Black) 0.0064% That’s all for this week!

    Players, This week we roll out our first monthly patch. This patch will the first of many to address performance, fix bugs and add new content to the game. I must stress that we will not be able to fix all performance issues with a single patch. For this patch, we focused on stabilizing performance for all users, trying to ensure there would be less FPS drops, and improve performance for those with lower spec systems. Optimizing the game will take us time, and will continue all through early access, so please have patience while we work to improve the game experience for all players. We are opening a Test Server to better manage our updates and ensure stability before we push updates to the Live Servers. We will push each new update to this server on the Wednesday of the week, to allow a full days testing before updating the live servers. We will have the exact time you should expect this server to be online tomorrow, so stay tuned to our Twitter! We are aware that some of you are experiencing what appear to be memory leaks, and we will work on fixing this going forward, but over the last month, we have been concentrating on improving the performance for min spec systems, and stabilizing FPS for everyone no matter what their PC specs. We are still a relativity small team, so we must focus on one problem at a time right now. We are working to expand the team, but finding the right people with suitable experience and capabilities takes time, so please bear with us. Next I need to address a slight price change for the game in New Zealand. We’ve been seeing some abnormal patterns in our New Zealand sales. It turns out that due to the comparatively low price in New Zealand (roughly US$25) and the fact that gifting from New Zealand to other countries is not restricted the same as it is for other countries like China, Russia and Brazil, people seem to be exploiting the system. We have slightly raised the price to US$28 to combat this. I also want to address server lag once again. The lag you experience on the servers is not due to the hardware or size of the server, nor does it have to do with the number of players online. It is due to a networking issue with the core engine code, and it is something we are working hard to resolve, but it is not a simple issue to fix, so it will take us some time. Please bear with us and we will get it fixed as soon as we can. Finally, before we get to the patch-notes for this month’s update, I want to once again thank everyone for their support over the past month. We broke 100,000 concurrent users on Monday which is a huge milestone for any game and we wouldn’t have done this without the tremendous support of every player, so from all team here, a sincere thank you.This patch will be deployed for both clients and servers Thursday, April 20, 5PM KST/1AM PDT/8AM UTC and is expected to take approx. 1 hour to complete.Early Access - Month 1 - Patch Notes Known issues The motorbike leans slightly to the right when being driven straight.
