5 things to know about the new FIX PUBG initiative

Will it do as it says

The roadmap spans the period between August and September and promises wide-reaching improvements to client and server performance, anti-cheat solutions, matchmaking, bug fixes, and quality of life.

If it's not cheaters bringing PUBG players down, it's a plethora of bugs according to the game's community. While there are certainly a bevy of consistent PUBG players, the fact that the most common phrase heard among its fan base is "fix the game", does not make the title look good by any stretch of the imagination, and it only creates more opportunities for popular competitors like Epic Games' Fortnite. Throughout this campaign we'll share specifics about what we're working on and the expected time it'll take to address the issues.

Its introduction in the first place likely stemmed from PUBG Corp.'s wish to lower the entry barrier for newcomers to the game but the pro gamers seem to have won this round. Still, it's imperative to the survival of the game that PUBG Corp works on these issues sooner rather than later.

A hotfix for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is out now on the Xbox One that improves loading times and fine-tunes the new analog movement feature. A low tick rate helps lessen strain, but can lead to a sub-par experience.

The latest hotfix is said to improve sprinting on Xbox One, as well as loading.

You'll be able to mute individual teammates while in-game.

Signing off, the post mentions that even after the campaign has run its course, PUBG Corp will still be taking feedback to ensure no further problems occur.

Quality-of-life improvements are coming to colorblind mode.

A brief FAQ at the bottom of the roadmap says that "throughout the next three months, we're dedicating the vast majority of our resources to addressing you issues with the game and implementing your suggested improvements".
