So, is PUBG fixed? Well, it looks like it will be over the next few months!
There was a moment in gaming that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was one of the biggest games in the world. However, the days of PUBG saturating Twitch, and creating severe hype, have dwindled since rivals Fortnite came on the scene.
A lot of that is down to some pretty shocking bugs driving away players. While many, many players have moved on to something like Fortnite, or even Escape From Tarkov, PUBG still has a solid fan base who just want the game to be as good as they know it can be.
With that being said ‘Fix PUBG’ has very much been a phrase banded around along with the game being mocked for being ‘esports ready’. Thankfully, it looks like PUBG is on route to be fixed now, potentially the most polished Battle Royale around.
This is a phrase we’ve been hearing a lot lately. Since we released PUBG as an Early Access game last year, the game has grown exponentially, and we’ve been fortunate enough to have millions of incredibly passionate players like you. However, we haven’t always been able to meet your expectations. Simply put, the game still has many unresolved issues.”
The bottom line is, you’re the reason for our success. You’ve stuck with us, and now it’s time for us to deliver the fixes you’ve been asking for.”
That’s why today we’re announcing a new campaign called “FIX PUBG.”[fix.pubg.com] For the duration of the campaign, we’ll be entirely focused on addressing problems with the game, including bugs, long-needed quality-of-life improvements, and fundamental performance improvements. Throughout this campaign, we’ll share specifics about what we’re working on, and the expected time it’ll take to address the issues. Then we’ll deliver on our promises.”
So, what are they going to do?
Well, for starters, it looks like they will be set to start with:
- Limb penetration will be implemented (if a player model’s hands or limbs are blocking a more vital area, bullets will now deal full damage for that area).
- Graphics “sharpening” will be added as separate toggle in the settings.
- You’ll be able to mute individual teammates while in-game.
- Quality-of-life improvements are coming to colourblind mode.
- Quality-of-life improvements are also coming to loot stack splitting (more control).
- Vehicle sounds will be reduced when driving in first-person perspective.
- You’ll be able to adjust your FPS cap (including by setting it to “uncapped”).
- You’ll also be able to set your in-game FPS cap and lobby FPS cap separately
We’re looking forward to seeing if the game becomes as good as we all know it could be.
