When a recreation is in Early Entry or transferring via Microsoft’s Sport Preview program, there are certain to be missteps, hiccups, rollbacks, and upsets that utterly alter the best way the sport performs, after which some. Effectively, PUBG Company simply encountered the primary main state of affairs in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds that requires a rollback on essentially the most main replace made to the Xbox One model of the sport.
Over on the official PUBG forums, the builders knowledgeable the neighborhood that patch #eight has been launched and it fixes plenty of bugs in addition to removes a serious change made to the sport’s automobiles. Automobile harm taken and car harm given to gamers has been reverted.
Based on the neighborhood supervisor, the staff acquired a variety of suggestions on how automobiles operated, and avid gamers have been under no circumstances pleased with the new changes, prompting PUBG Company to revert again to the previous modifications.
Within the authentic replace, the automobiles have been modified in order that they took much more harm within the Xbox One model of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, with the wheels particularly being inclined to breaking or deflating with just a bit little bit of gunfire. The staff additionally elevated the harm dealt to automobiles when working into objects at high-speeds, in addition to the harm that gamers acquired when getting hit by automobiles, and the harm dealt out when automobiles would come into contact with grenades and explosives.
The entire thing appeared like a step in the fitting route, particularly so far as realism was involved, however that wasn’t precisely what the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds neighborhood needed when it got here to the gameplay options out of the Battle Royale survival recreation.
So, after cautious deliberation and suggestions, PUBG Corporation determined the most effective plan of action was to revert again to a extra steady construct of the sport and the sort of vehicular setup that the followers appreciated essentially the most and had essentially the most enjoyable with.
I believe ultimately that is actually what all of it boils all the way down to, having enjoyable. Making the automobiles extra life like might have appeared like a sensible factor to do at first, however I believe if folks needed an H1Z1 or DayZ expertise they will very properly hop on over to these video games proper now for that sort of expertise.
So far as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is worried, PUBG Company continues to be updating the sport. The most recent patch not solely reverts the car stats and habits however the staff additionally squeezed in bugfixes as properly, together with a bug that prevented gamers from vaulting over sure ledges and home windows, in addition to a vehicle-related bug the place they’d immediately teleport to a different place on the map as soon as the participant stepped out. I can solely think about how irritating that bug will need to have been for groups who tried to select up one other member or drive to a different location for an merchandise, solely to have the car teleport away.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is obtainable proper now for PC through Steam, and can also be accessible within the early entry Sport Preview for Xbox One gamers. It is also scheduled to launch in a while for the PS4.
