4.7GB PUBG Xbox patch takes a "first pass" at performance and visuals

"We take listening and reacting to our player base seriously."

A 4.7GB patch has been put out for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One.

The most notable difference will probably be to visuals and performance, after what's described as a "first pass" at them. These were areas Digital Foundry noticed PUBG struggling on Xbox One - and X.

But there are many other incidental fixes besides, all listed below.

"We are glad players are enjoying PUBG in Xbox Game Preview and we appreciate all of the great feedback we've received," wrote the PUBG team on the game's forum. "We take listening and reacting to our player base seriously, and we will work with our community to find opportunity to continually improve the player experience while in XGP and beyond."

PUBG launched on Xbox Game Preview (early access) last week and sold more than 1m copies in 48 hours. On PC, meanwhile, PUBG is a day away from leaving Steam Early Access and reaching version 1.0. That should happen at some point tomorrow.
