PUBG Corp has responded to the regular complaint about the current state of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, saying “it’s time to fix PUBG”.
You don’t have to look far in any PUBG related Reddit posts, Steam announcements, or forums to find players calling for the developers to “FIX THE GAME” and it looks like they are now taking those requests more seriously than ever before.
In a new post on Steam, PUBG Corp stated:
“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 post continues by saying “that’s why today we’re announcing a new campaign called ‘FIX PUBG’. The campaign will focus on addressing all of the game’s major issues and improving the quality-of-life for the millions of players worldwide.
The FIX PUBG campaign will begin with a patch that goes live today, August 8, and will implement the following changes:
- 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 colorblind 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.
PUBG Corp promised to start looking into the various optimization and bug improvements in the Update 17.1 patch notes but this is the first big step towards making good on it, releasing a website specifically for project.
The PUBG team concluded with “As always, we are humbled by your passion and dedication. Thank you for all your feedback and reports. We're looking forward to crushing these bugs and continuing to improve the game however we can.”
