The first patch of 2018 for PUBG on the Xbox One is on its way. The PUBG Development Team has said that they’ve finalized a list of fixes for the update and that it is addressing some big issues that the game currently has.
According to PUBG’s Community Coordinator in a post on the PUBG Forums, this first Client Side patch of the year for Xbox One will address crashing issues, gameplay adjustments, and quality of life improvements. Anyone who’s played PUBG on Xbox One should have experienced a game crash at this point, so this is a welcome update to the game. As far as the gameplay adjustments and quality of life improvements, we’ll just have to wait for the patch notes to discover what’ll be included in the update.
The good news is that the developers are planning to submit the patch for Microsoft Certification today, and they will be updating players this week with specifics regarding the exact timing for the release and content of the patch.
Hopefully this patch remedies the crashing issue. Of all the rough edges in PUBG for Xbox One, the game crashing to the Xbox Dashboard in the middle of a game is one of the more frustrating ones as it seems to happen randomly. Right now, the solution is to restart the game and hope that you haven’t been killed yet, as it allows you rejoin your game in-progress. We’ll see soon if they’ve discovered a fix for this that will either eliminate it entirely or at least make it happen less often.
Unfortunately this isn’t the first patch that’s been said to alleviate these issues. A server-side update was released at the end of December that was said to improve the game crashing problem. Following the update the crashing problem in PUBG on Xbox One hasn’t stopped. Hopefully this Client Side update will do the trick.
While this is the first patch for PUBG on the Xbox One in 2018, there are likely many more to come. The game has proven to be both fun to play on console and popular as well. The most recent tally revealed for sales on the console were upwards of 1 million copies.
