Acknowledging that the game has some unresolved issues, PUBG corp. has launched the “Fix PUBG campaign”.
PUBG is the game which brought Battle Royale to the mainstream. At one time, it was the king of Battle Royales and it even broke Dota 2’s record of the most concurrent players. That was before it left early access. But even after leaving early access, PUBG was riddled with bugs and other problems. And it wasn’t long before players started demanding to fix PUBG.
And to that end, PUBG corp. has started the Fix PUBG campaign. In an announcement on Steam, they said:
‘“FIX THE GAME.”
This is a phrase we’ve been hearing a lot lately. Since we released PUBG as an Early Access game last year, the game has grown exponentially, and we’ve been fortunate enough to have millions of incredibly passionate players like you. However, we haven’t always been able to meet your expectations. Simply put, the game still has many unresolved issues.
The bottom line is, you’re the reason for our success. You’ve stuck with us, and now it’s time for us to deliver the fixes you’ve been asking for.’
The Fix PUBG campaign will see a lot of bug fixes and quality of life improvement. In fact, the campaign has started with a patch that will hit the live servers today.
It has several fixes like:
Limb penetration will be implemented (if a player model’s hands or limbs are blocking a more vital area, bullets will now deal full damage for that area).
Graphics “sharpening” will be added as a separate toggle in the settings.
You’ll be able to mute individual teammates while in-game.
Quality-of-life improvements are coming to colorblind mode.
Quality-of-life improvements are also coming to loot stack splitting (more control).
Vehicle sounds will be reduced when driving in the first-person perspective.
You’ll be able to adjust your FPS cap (including by setting it to “uncapped”).
You’ll also be able to set your in-game FPS cap and lobby FPS cap separately.
The Fix PUBG campaign also has its own website. The website details the roadmap for the campaign. It also details what all fixes have been done and what fixes are upcoming. For now, the roadmap details the campaign up to the month of October.
