Release Time for Steam PC Patch following BIG Xbox One news

The Xbox One version launched last week via the preview program, although has unfortunately been subject to a range of technical issues such as texture pop-in and inconsistent performance.

'We're not going to dish out any final scores until the full release next year, but Bluehole and Microsoft have some serious work to do if they want to bring the Xbox One PUBG up to scratch.

This makes Battleground less complete on the Xbox One than it is on the PC but it should not deter you away from purchasing the game.

The new season will start when the v1.0 release lands on the PC sometime on December 20, but official confirmation will be announced "soon".

However, Bluehole has already begun pushing updates to improve things.


However, they have mentioned that the "exact schedule for the PC 1.0 update will be shared soon". Among them includes the Desert map and the exclusive weapons/vehicles attached to it. This is a big deal because until now, gamers in countries like Australia and New Zealand had to connect to servers in other places, which could result in a less-than-ideal experience.

The new update will add the Miramar desert map which was shown off at The Game Awards for all PC players, along with promises of a lot of new features.

According to a new Xbox Wire news post, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds sold more than 1m copies in its first 48 hours on the Xbox One.

Considering that PUBG on PC exits early access on Steam this week, it's only natural for developer PUBG Corp to turn its attention to the Xbox One version of the game.

So: to everyone else playing on Xbox One: has the patch helped?
