    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

    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, 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! Thanks for playing, and please leave your feedback as always! In the coming weeks you can expect some big news and content drops. <3, PUBG Corp.

    Here's a list of some controls you might not know about. Keep in mind everything is DEFAULT binds so if you rebound your keys, it may be different for you. When rebinding keys, make sure all slots have been bound to a key in order to be able to APPLY settings. Hold right click and E or Q - changes the camera view for Right Click ADS Hold left click after shooting - Gun will stay scoped in so you can watch where your bullet lands X - Puts away all equipped items Hold SHIFT - Hold breath when scoped, will also zoom in slightly if you are not scoped CTRL + Right click or drag - Split items = is Autorun Right-click tap brings out Iron sights/ADS Holding right click will zoom in aim Looking down with your mouse while swimming will take you deeper. You can also use crouch (C) to dive and jump (Space) to rise in water. Looking straight down with your mouse and pressing W while parachuting will help you get to max speed. This way your parachute will deploy lower and you will lose less speed when it is deployed. 7,8,9,0 are the default keybindings for medical and boost items. You can switch between different types of grenades by pressing 5 multiple times CTRL + T - Voice chat mute/unmute CTRL + U - Toggle UI CTRL + M - Master volume mute/unmute CTRL + Y - Switch voice channel Ctrl + 1,2,3,4 = Move vehicle seating positions. Holding ALT while running or ADS will let you free look around your character Page Up / Page Down - Change zeroing parameters on scopes B - Toggle between single, burst and full-auto fire mode depending on the gun Insert - Mark current position on the map Left click-hold, Right click then press 'R' - Underhand throw grenades If you have controls that you would like to add to this list please feel free to do so.

    Aim assist has no place in a battle royale game end of story. It is ment to be hard, aim assist will take away that sense of achievement, please stop asking for it. It will destroy this game and I will never play this game again, I am guessing alot of people feel the same as me.

    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. The tires of the motorbike cannot be shot out at the moment [Non-English Players] There are some mistranslated in-game texts and they will be shown in English Client Performance Improvements Made some improvements to address the issue of FPS drops when opening the inventory UI Reduced the load on the CPU through instance rendering so that the GPUs can function to their full capabilities Made improvements to address the issue of FPS severely dropping when in the vicinity of Yasnaya, Polyana & Georgopol Rendering performance on PCs with minimum system requirements has been improved Graphic performance and quality on PCs with minimum system requirements has been improved Server Performance Improvements Performance improvements have been made with relation to the items spawned in the world Content Updates Added Vector SMG.

    I've got a dirty little secret that I've got to get off my chest. In about 75% of my solo games, I drop at the very same group of houses... clear them all and tidy them up, closing all doors and not picking up ammo stacks from the random pistols that might be laying about. I usually end up with a pretty nice loadout. Pretty much always an AR (or two) or a sniper. Always a shotty or two to be had. I then go to the top of the stairs in a particular house in this complex and drop the AR, a scope (if I have one), a boost, a first aid kit, my shirt, and three stacks of one bullet of ammo to correspond with the gun I've left. Spread it all out nicely so it looks like spawn items. *But it's not. It's never a spawn. Stuff never shows up in this spot right at the top of the stairs.* And then I wait. And wait. And nearly every time, someone shows up and starts looting this group of houses. They run up my stairs and the first thing they see is this pile of loot. They always seem to open their menu to see the cornucopia of stuff that I've left there. I watch this all go down in plain sight from a corner in the kitchen. I'm never really hidden. I'll wait for about two full seconds, giddy with anticipation as I imagine their developing thoughts as they see the stacks of one bullet, before I unload three or four shotgun blasts into their unsuspecting torso. I usually add one more to their corpse after they've been disposed of. And then... I tea-bag the body for a good 20 seconds. And I laugh. Oh, I laugh. It's a dark, dirty experience. I then record a clip of the whole ordeal and send it to my victim. Sometimes I add splash screens to the video at the end that say "LOLOLOLOL" or "Ooops! SORRY" for effect. Occasionally I loop the 1-2 seconds of actual gunfire over and over and over at the end of the clip, extending the moment in video form. I enjoy it more than a chicken dinner. If I've done this to you, thank you for your participation in my game. It's nothing personal. And I'm sorry... just a little bit. See you on the island.

    Players, First of all, we would like to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the cheaters and we are sorry that you have not been able to enjoy PUBG in a safe and fair environment. Our development team is doing their best to detect and ban those who use cheats in a more proactive manner. We are aware that we still have much to do. We will use all available resources to combat cheaters and foster a safe and fair in-game environment. We will also continue to take actions against those who develop and distribute cheats. As we announced before, we are in the process of adopting new tools to detect and verify users with unusual gameplay patterns and today, we will be rolling out additional measures. We will continue to permanently ban those who are using cheats. When unusual gameplay patterns are detected from an account, that account will be temporarily suspended and investigated. Although we hope to bring about a safe and fair environment in PUBG as soon as possible, our battle against cheaters will not end overnight. We will continue our research and development to establish a better system for combatting cheaters. We will take stronger actions to find and ban cheaters, while at the same time taking good care to not harm innocent players. Next week, we will be deploying yet another patch related to cheat detection. Again, we would like to assure you that we will continue our efforts to shape a healthy environment in PUBG. Your feedback is crucial for us in banning cheaters and combatting the use of cheats. We will be listening to your feedback as we continue to build our anticheat system and adopt new measures. Thank you. The PUBG Development and Community Team

    A tiny minority of whiners complain about rain and fog - Bluehole listens and removes this awesome, fantastic atmosphere-enhancing feature. A tiny minority of whiners complain "the plane is too loud" - Bluehole quietens the wonderful ear-blasting, plane noise A tiny minority of whiners complain "the buggy is too loud" even though it's a buggy with an open engine, Bluehole quietens it for you snowflakes Next they'll quieten or remove the fantastic new pants-tearingly great redzone Next they'll give you awesome loot in every house because you're too much of a snowflake to suck it up and git gud with a pistol, even though loot is already a bit too immersion-breakingly prevalent Next instead of a circle that closes in it'll be a parade of fluffy unicorns gently suggesting (quietly, so as not to disturb your poor ears) that you stop camping Soon they will have map selection because you're all too babyish to suck it up and just deal with the hand you're dealt. It's battle royale, trying to survive in ANY environment you are dealt with is the POINT. Can Bluehole please have a little bit of faith in their core concept of high-RNG, high-atmosphere, high-immersion battle royale that has made their game such a global hit in the first place, and stick to their guns in terms of game design, instead of caving in to every whiner on here who wants to dumb down their fantastic game into "CoD with a bit of Arma". Thank you.

    PC players, As announced, the new anti-cheat solution that was to be applied today has been delayed. However, BattlEye, a part of our anti-cheat solution, has blocked ReShade. For you to run the game, you must uninstall ReShade. If the game files are already damaged, you must also reinstall the game. ReShade not only behaves like a cheat program but can also be used for cheating, and must therefore be blocked. Please be advised that this is a permanent block. Thank you. -- The anti-cheat update is now live

    Players, Today, I finally get to talk to you about our vision and roadmap for 2018. We have come a long way over the past 2 years and have learned so much. We’ve done a lot of planning over the last two months, and today we reveal how we want PUBG to evolve in 2018. We’ve worked hard over the past 2 years to build a good foundation for the most realistic Battle Royale experience out there. This year we plan to build on that foundation and really start to polish our features, squash the remaining bugs and expand the game even further. When we came out of Steam Early Access, we told you that it was just the beginning of our journey. This year we’re committing to a major content delivery cycle every two months, the first of which is planned for this month. Each of these major updates will bring changes to specific systems and/or introduce new content. Smaller updates between the major ones will also continue throughout the year. This year we want to involve our players in the ongoing development of PUBG even more than before, and to aid with this we plan to open an Experimental Test Server so we can get your valuable feedback on our feature/content development cycle sooner and for you to have a real impact on how our game changes and develops going forward. It is also our aim to continually upgrade the game’s aesthetic side, and today we want to share some before/after images showing work the art team has been doing to improve the way houses are rendered in the game. Now onto the Roadmap proper. Please keep in mind that everything below is subject to change, and is still very much a work in progress. With that in mind, let’s get into the specifics! New Content and Gameplay Next month we will be deploying a new, 4x4km island map on our Experimental Test Server for you to try out. It’s a much smaller map and should give you all a much more intense and faster paced Battle Royale experience. It will offer a higher player density and shorter matches and we want to get it into your hands early this time around so we can use your input to make it a great experience for everyone. We’re also ready to begin testing our Emote System. You will be able to check it out on our Test Servers very soon. We’re looking forward to receiving your feedback on this new system and we will continue to expand on the range of emotes available throughout the year. For now, here is a brief preview of some of the work we have been doing on this system. I’ve been working with our amazing game design team to plan some new and interesting Game Modes for PUBG. We’re still early days when it comes to hammering out all the kinks and details, so I’m unfortunately not yet at a place where I can share specifics. We plan to add new vehicles in the first half of the year and want to continue expanding our weapon set and also add new weapon attachments this year. Here is a peek at one of the new weapons coming soon. Another new map that we’re working on is planned to be 8x8km in size. As with the smaller map coming to the Experimental Test Servers, we want to get this into your hands early in its development, so you can help us make the gameplay great on this new map. We’re ready to begin testing Achievements, in-game friends list and squad voice chat in the main menu! We also want to further allow you to customize your character, and both parachute and weapon skins will be added in the future to help with this. We will also be testing limb and vehicle bullet penetration on the test servers later. This will add new depth to our ballistic system, and increase the realism of gameplay. We, of course, will listen closely to your feedback on these new systems, and if you have concerns, please head over to our forums and leave your feedback there. In 2018, we will be looking at overhauling our entire TPP and FPP animation systems to make them smoother and more reactive to the environment. This will include animations for getting inside vehicles and changing seats while in the vehicle. We also want to improve how the character moves to allow our 3D replay to deliver some truly great content. Also on our roadmap is an overhaul for the parachuting system, to make it more responsive and polish the overall look of the animations. We are also working to improve our armed and unarmed melee combat systems. Stability, Optimization, Security We have not forgotten about our core responsibility to our players - to provide a stable, smooth and secure environment for enjoying a great Battle Royale experience. We are continuing our daily work to combat cheaters, improve server stability and further optimize our servers and clients. It is impossible to solve these problems once and for all, but our goal is to continuously improve in this regard. Due to the sensitive nature of this subject and to maximize the impact we can have, I won’t be able to go into specific plans. However, we’re planning to keep you more up-to-date about our efforts as we have major victories to share. Sound In the first half of 2018, we intend to increase the detail of vehicle sounds, which means introducing suspension sounds and more skidding sounds. We also want to work with surfaces that would reflect different weather conditions and add rain sounds to vehicle surfaces. Also in the first half of the year, we’re looking at making the gun sounds more distinctly different depending on POV. In the second half of the year, we plan to change the sound that the player produces while moving so that it corresponds to the equipment they are carrying. We also plan to introduce different breathing sounds when the player is, for example, running, aiming down sight or holding breath. Esports Seriously, we are not there yet, but we will be. Thanks to the amazing feedback coming from the player community and professional scene we believe we’re moving in the right direction. We truly want to build a great foundation for Battle Royale esports, and while we have seen some great events already using our game, we have much work to do, especially with the observing side of things. We believe our 3D replay system is the key to allowing orgs to provide much better coverage of a match. This year we want to further improve the live spectator tool, but also integrate a replay system for spectators to use during live matches. Our data analytics team has been pouring over ranking and player performance data for the past 3 months, and they are now working on improving MMR and the overall ranking system. We have great teams working on these systems, and along with our new Play Data API toolset, we think 2018 will be a great year for us to further strengthen our esport foundation. Custom Games The Custom Game System will itself be further expanded to allow more fine grain control and quality of life features like saving presets. We’re also planning to distribute access to a wider audience of players so that there are more custom games available to join at any given time. We can’t thank you enough for your patience thus far and we will soon share more details with you regarding our successes and future challenges in this regard. Community Developer Support This year we will be introducing the PUBG Developer Portal. Our Developer Portal will introduce the PUBG Developer API, a development blog, and technical notes regarding game updates. The API Service will support developers in the community by providing player and match data around gameplay performance. It will also provide match-level, season-level, and lifetime-level data for developers to create compelling resources for players. Another interesting and useful application of our API will allow esports groups and other third parties to create custom games within PUBG. This will enable esports groups to effectively manage games while minimizing ongoing technical work on the part of PUBG Corp. So that’s it for the 2018 PUBG Roadmap. Please keep in mind that this list of new features and systems is not exhaustive as far as 2018 is concerned. There are other things we plan to introduce that we were not yet ready talk about, so stay tuned! As always, thank you for your tremendous support over the past year! See you in-game, PLAYERUNKNOWN

    Xbox players, Sincere thanks for your continued feedback, and as usual please direct your thoughts and issues to: https://forums.playbattlegrounds.com/forum/178-xbox/ The team will continue to evaluate areas for improvement, whether its client and server optimizations or monitoring the current “Car Meta”. Our second patch is focused on quality of life fixes (weapon recoil for example) as well as trying to resolve some of the stability issues that have been brought to our attention. We expect to release our next patch at the beginning of the year, but we will monitor player feedback carefully and will address critical items over the holiday break as needed. Thanks again for your support. This patch will be live at 1AM PST / 10AM CET / 6PM KST. Please restart your Xbox after the patch goes live to get the update. Optimization Continued performance optimizations In-game The tuning range for the general sensitivity option has been expanded Weapon recoil reduced across the board (Xbox Only) Team UI will now correctly display voice chat status Additional Localization updates Bug A variety of crash fixes Fixed an issue where casting bar UI remains onscreen when spectating a target who died while using an item from their inventory See you in-game, The PUBG Development and Community Team

    Loving this game but the same as always, no South African servers. Most of the time devs dont have South African servers because the community is not large enough but no one buys it because we rarely get servers hosted. We have plenty of good game hosts and hosting companies commited to their community, Please consider adding at least a few servers, even as a trial for the Africa region, it will be much appreciated. PS, I played Battle Royale and Breaking Point on EU servers, so im used to the 200+ ms lag we get

    We, brazilian gamers (and South America likewise) hope to see the add of South America servers for Pubg on Xbox One eventually. Not only it would drasticly improve the experience for us, but for North American players too, since we wouldn't be lagging around their servers anymore. We understand the current stage of the game, fixing bugs, changing gameplay and graphics aspects as well. However, after the Oceania dedicated servers add news we hope to see Bluehole to help out our south american countries when they can, please.

    Xbox players, We will be opening Duo and Squad FPP on NA and EU servers today at 12PM KST / 7PM PST / 4AM CET. We will continue to monitor player data to determine when we can add another game mode in other regions. See you in-game, The PUBG Development and Community Team

    That’s completely false. Any game that is actually competitive doesn’t have aim assist in Xbox (i.e. not call of duty) Give Rainbow Six Siege a go. We don’t need or want aim assist. Stop trying to ruin the game. Peace.

    Dropping in here to +1 servers for South Africa, please! Aaaaand disappointment, I know AWS hires lots of techies here to work on their infra and assumed they must have servers here... which they don't...

    Hello! Great news for the active input in new servers. Im also from South Africa. How do we let you know that we need servers here? Must we all buy the game and then hope that they get released. Playing with 250ping is not an option until then. Thanks

    as the title says, it is long past time for a practice mode or map to be added. how hard can it be to add a mode where you spawn next to a few crates filled with all kinds of rifles, attachments and ammo? add a couple of targets and voila, you got a practice mode. pubg is a game where you spend a lot of time looting and running around. that's very inefficient for practicing aim and mechanics like recoil, bullet drop and so on. and no, dropping school is no substitute for a practice mode. it is very inefficient as well.

    Asking for keys is against the forum rules. This also includes begging for keys, implying that you should have received a key, complaining that you didn't receive a key and PMing mods and admins with any of the above. Breaking forum rules can and will result in a ban.

    It really sadens me that even before this patch has went live that the first forum topic with the patch notes included is filled with so much hate. The forums have been inundated with us asking for the notes, info etc and when we do get the info we have been asking for its resulted in so much negativity. I personally like to hold judgement until patch 12 drops so we can actually test the game and see the difference it has made other than jump on the negativity train that runs through these forums. It should be simple...if you have no support at all for this title and you ridicule every decision made by PUBG Corp and don't understand that as players we currently are the testers for this game please just go and play something else because these forums are for feedback, development, and a journey for us to experience and not the hate that currently flows through it.

    First of all, I have to say that this game has me literally playing for hours and hours. I feel like I'm playing SOCOM again, but better, bigger and grander. You made me want to play games again. Please keep it up, I love this game. I know there are some issues, I feel confident you will work them out. You're making a great game. And when the new map hits, it'll be even better....Thanks PUBG devs

    First let me say that I feel strongly enough about this to register a forum account. It will likely be my only post and I'll keep it short. 1) The circle's damage is WONDERFUL, perfect, don't change it. 2) it moves WAY too fast mid to late game. We should be able to outrun it. I would rather see the beginning circle move faster and the later ones move slower as it shrinks down. Right around the time that there are ~20 people in the game it should move at a jog (only outpaced by a sprint). when there are 10 people left it should move at a crouch walk's pace, jog should be able to outrun it. The game is called 'Battlegrounds' not 'Battlecircle'.... which is what this game feels like at this time. Thank you.
