Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where upon completing a match in Training Mode, you would receive two wins that counted towards Game Hub stats

While PUBG Update 3 lacks sweeping gameplay changes, the systems-level content included in the patch is pretty significant. Players on all platforms have been critical of the game's Event Pass progression, but this Supply System offers players a path toward free, permanent cosmetics that aren't tied to a seasonal time limit. What we're seeing in this case is a direct response to fan criticism, and it seems like a pretty solid one. Custom Matches are also pretty cool, but there needs to be more rule and mode options before the feature can become truly useful.

The underneath-the-hood stuff is nice, but Xbox fans in particular are still hungry for performance tweaks that today's update simply doesn't offer. Framerates and bugs are still prominent on Xbox One X, and level of graphical detail fluctuates heavily on both Xbox platforms. Since Update 3 is more feature-based, we hope to see a bug-centric patch next.

PUBG is available now on PC and Xbox One. Update 3 is exclusive to Xbox One.
