PUBG On the Xbox One Hits 4 Million Players

So, what can be seen as a pretty impressive milestone, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has hit 4 million players on the Xbox One, and that is with only being out for just over a month or so, and still being in game preview.  This is no doubt quite a benchmark to reach, and something we think is pretty telling of the support to date.

in conjuntion with this announcement, the dev-team has released its sixth content update for the game, with the hope of adding some gameplay optimizations and bug fixes.  It includes the following:


  • Auto-run function has been added (from a standstill, double clicking L3 will activate auto-run)
  • Players can now drop equipped weapons with Y button when inventory screen is active
  • Grenades can once again be cycled by tapping right on D pad
  • Players can now cancel casting actions while the inventory screen is active


  • Continued optimizations and crash fixes 


  • Game controller guide has been updated  

Bug fixes

  • Buildings around the Military Base have had their collision adjusted
  • Camera shake when riding as a passenger in vehicles has been reduced
  • Inventory character models have returned to their normal stance
  •  Fixed a camera issue created by unintended Aim Down Sights and Free Look interactions
  • “A” button will no longer refresh game results screen
  • Team UI will now correctly show the proper direction teammates are facing over larger distances
  • Player changes to markers on the in-game map will now be properly applied to their teammate’s in-game map
  • Fixed an issue where switching to throwables under certain conditions left the player empty-handed
  • Adjusted character positioning when exiting vehicles and parachutes

To show some love to those who have downloaded and are playing PUBG, the developers are rewarding players with 30,000 Battle Points to purchase cosmetic crates in the game.  They state that anyone who has purchased, or plans to purchase, PUBG before Jan 31, and create a character before the same date, will be eligible for the bonus Battle Points.  These points will be delivered after February 1st.

Well, that is all we got for now, and we hope to have more coverage as the game continues on its journey to full release.
