PUBG breaks down the planned fixes and overhauls into five categories: client performance, server performance, anti-cheat, matchmaking, and bug fixes / quality of life issues.
PUBG Corp. has removed the option to place map markers in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds after the feature ran into controversy with the game's top players, it announced as part of the update notes for the upcoming patch 19 for the game's PC version.
The Fix PUBG roadmap is very much a live document, and PUBG Corp says that it'll be ticking off different fixes and improvements as they complete them.
"This is a phrase that we've been hearing a lot lately", reads a site statement, referencing the common player complaint, "Fix the game". The goal of the campaign is for developers to "be entirely focused on addressing problems with the game, including bugs, long-needed QoL improvements and fundamental performance improvements". PUBG Corp. wants to up PUBG's tick rate, especially as it relates to objects close to you and early in the game (no more laggy landings).
Loading, meanwhile, should be handled more efficiently by the game.
If it's not cheaters bringing PUBG players down, it's a plethora of bugs according to the game's community. "So we think it's time to do something about it". "You've stuck with us, and now it's time for us to deliver the fixes you've been asking for".
To that effort, PUBG Corp has launched a website where users can track the progress of specific fixes being worked on for PUBG. The battle royale has come to life with indie games like Totally Accurate Battlegrounds, the addition of battle royale game modes to long-running series like Call of Duty and Battlefield and, of course, Epic Games' quick pivoting of Fortnite from a modern take on Minecraft to having a battle royale mode that has become a pop culture sensation less than a year after it first debuted. Animation fixes, HUD improvements, you name it - nearly every aspect of PUBG will be getting some sort of facelift over the coming months.
