'Fix PUBG' is a 3 month dev campaign to address player concerns

The "Fix PUBG" campaign was announced on Steam and promises to fix not just the innumerable bugs and glitches but address performance issues and anti-cheat measures.

Taking all of this into consideration, one can only hope that the "FIX PUBG" campaign pays off not only for the sake of the battle royale title's huge player base, but also on behalf of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds itself.

"On the landing page, the team admit that "'Fix The Game' is a phrase that we've been hearing a lot lately". Throughout this campaign we'll share specifics about what we're working on and the expected time it'll take to address the issues. With average fps now at 60 or higher, PUBG Corp. will be looking to reduce hitches. Still, it's imperative to the survival of the game that PUBG Corp works on these issues sooner rather than later.




Launched in Early Access previous year and released fully in December after the original schedule was pushed back, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been an impressive success - and the trigger behind the explosion of interest in the battle royale format, where numerous players compete in an ever-shrinking arena to kill each other with scavenged weapons until only one is left standing. A high tick rate is harder to keep up with, but makes player actions feel fast and accurate.

Fans and observers would say 6-12 months ago was the time to do something about it, before Fortnite arrived and ate PUBG's lunch (partly because PUBG, despite being the first big Battle Royale game, ran like trash), but it's better late than never, I guess.

You'll definitely want to check out the FIX PUBG roadmap on this category, as it's quite extensive. What's more is that the effort will see the companies dedicating "the vast majority" of its resources to addressing player issues with the game and implementing those suggested improvements over the course of the next three months.
