PUBG Xbox One Game Preview Update #8 Reverses Changes Made To Vehicles

It’s quite clear at this point that bringing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to Xbox One isn’t a straight and direct path. Following strong feedback from the community, they’ve been adding features and tweaking gameplay alongside bug fixes.

Last week that saw them take a stab at addressing the “car meta” in which half a dozen people in cars would sometimes make it to the last 10 thanks to them being hard to hit and taking much less damage. They dramatically reduced the health and barrier for vehicle damage last week, and have almost immediately stuck the game in reverse after player feedback, while searching for a hopefully more nuanced solution.

Here’s the rather slim patch notes:

Gameplay

  • We received a lot of great feedback following the changes made to vehicle/player damage. We continue to tune and balance this element of gameplay, and are therefore reverting back to increased damage if a player is struck by a vehicle.

Bug fixes

  • Resolved an issue preventing players from vaulting over specific ledges and/or windows
  • The camera will now remain in the correct location following player death
  • Vehicles will no longer relocate to another position on the map after the player disembarks
