PUBG Xbox One Update Patch Notes (September 18)

Performance

  • Graphical settings on the Xbox One X have been toned down temporarily to help address framerate issues. The resolution and texture quality will remain the same. We wanted to maintain the quality in overall visuals, so to minimize the difference, we only reduced very specific detailed graphics options like shadowing and reflections.
    • This includes the following changes:
      • Shadow Quality (Both Dynamic/Static) lowered
      • Post Processing
        • Disabled Motion Blur
        • Decrease quality of Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO)
        • Disabled off Depth of Field
        • Disabled off Lens Flare
        • Decreased Eyes Adaption Quality
          • This is the time it takes for your eyes to adapt to the dark when you go from a bright to dark place.
      • Effects
        • Disabled Screen Space Reflection (SSR)
          • This is the reflection from windows and such.
        • Disabled Refraction
          • This is refracted light.
        • Disabled Subsurface Scattering (SSS)
          • This is when there is light inside an object to make it look more real.
        • Disabled Particle Light
          • This is dynamic light from different effects such as explosions.
        • Lowered the number of particles created
  • Optimized inventory in the CUSTOMIZATION menu in the lobby to reduce input lag.

Gameplay

  • BP exchange has been added to weapon skins.
    • Pressing the Y button while hovering over the weapon skin in the inventory will exchange that weapon skin for BP.
    • Only one skin at a time can be exchanged for BP. BP exchange price will vary with each item.
    • The preview button has been changed to ≡ button.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the Russian and Uzbek languages were not displaying correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where a “Lost connection to host” error would pop up when connecting into a match after previously cancelling matchmaking.
