PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – which was initially launched in the form of online gaming – was a smashing hit in 2017. Its game developers decided to expand the game’s reach, in terms of the number of platforms that it was made available in. In a similar effort, the company introduced the Xbox version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds towards the end of 2017. It seems like they have managed to make a sale of 3 million copies within a month itself. What’s more? It continues to reign in terms of sales.
According to a report published by Venture Beat, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds game developer recently released the “last-player-standing battle royale shooter for developer PUBG Corp as part of the Game Preview program for unfinished projects. Players can spend $30 to participate in this early testing, and a lot of people have done exactly that.”
Microsoft’s Marketing Head (for Games), Aaron Greenberg admitted that PUBG has gone through a rough patch. He went on to point that constant updates are being released for the game since its launch on December 12. Greenberg further promised that more updates were on its way for the users. “The team at PUBG Corp. is determined to continue to improve the in-game experience for PUBG’s growing and active community,” said Greenberg.
“The studio has already released four updates since the game’s launch in Xbox Game Preview on December 12. You’ll continue to see regular updates roll out for PUBG on Xbox One such as this week’s edition of first-person support for solo, duo, and squads gameplay and the team is just getting started, with more updates planned that include additional game optimization and the new Miramar map.”
The patches, which are released frequently, consist of improvements in terms of performance and features as well. The developer recently implemented a stead 30 frames per second, which was pretty noticeable by users. While the game might not be as good as the PC version, they are still trying to make it good enough for all.
