In March 2017 PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS came to Steam as an Early Access and in December of the same year, the development team released version 1.0. However, the players are not very happy with the status of the game, so PUBG Corp. announced a Fix PUBG program to improve the Battle Royale.
Therefore, the company announced a new initiative called “Fix PUBG” with the aim of repairing the game once and for all. The name is based on a phrase repeated by fans. “Bugs, performance problems, and quality-of-life issues have been limiting PUBG’s true potential, and you want it fixed. So we think it’s time to do something about it,” the page’s description says.
“FIX PUBG” is a months-long campaign to deliver the changes and improvements that you’ve been asking for,” the studio explained. “We’ve created a roadmap with specific details about our plans, and we intend to update it as we go, checking things off as we deliver on our promises.”
To start this program, the studio launched a major update on Xbox One and PC, solving several problems that were identified in the roadmap. Initially, PUBG Corp. plans to solve more than 100 errors, of which 37 have already been addressed. The most important, without a doubt, is that the company plans to optimize the game so that it works correctly and there will also be adjustments on the server, with improved loading times.
The Fix PUBG campaign will last from August to October, although the studio promised to continue improving the title. Among the biggest goals, in addition to optimization, are measures to avoid cheaters, something that fans have asked from the beginning. You can see the complete list on this page.
Although the popularity of PUBG has decreased due to Fortnite, the truth is that the Battle Royale is still very popular. The game has a huge fan base, as proof of that today it exceeded the 1.1 million simultaneous players on Steam, leaving DOTA 2 behind with 662,991 users.
"Fix the Game."
This is a phrase we’ve been hearing a lot lately. So today, we’re announcing a new campaign entirely focused on addressing bugs, quality-of-life improvements, and fundamental performance improvements.
