PUBG Corp, the company behind PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, has announced an initiative seeking to improve the game. Titled ‘Fix PUBG’, the campaign seeks to improve a variety of features, including matchmaking, performance, bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and more.
In a recent Steam Community update, PUBG Corp spoke to the community about their plans:
‘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.
PUBG Corp has launched a dedicated website to the ‘Fix PUBG’ campaign, complete with a roadmap, fix log, and FAQ. They say that they will be “entirely focused” on bug fixes, “fundamental” performance issues, and “long-needed” quality of life improvements. Among the first issues ‘Fix PUBG’ is planning on tackling include improving the game’s recently implemented limb penetration system, adding a “sharpening” graphics setting, giving players the ability to mute teammates in-game, adding a way to adjust the FPS cap, and quality of life improvements to colorblind mode among other things.
There’s no indication of how long this campaign is planned to go for, but PUBG Corp promises transparency throughout the process:
Throughout this campaign we’ll share specifics about what we’re working on and the expected time it’ll take to address the issues. Then we’ll deliver on our promises.
While it is one of the major players in the battle royale market and the main inspirations for the genre, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has a ‘Mixed’ rating on Steam, with recent reviews being ‘Mostly Negative’. Even some of those reviews the recommend the game feel that the game can be ‘fixed’.
