PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds early access update released a couple of days ago that not only added a handful of features but made improvements to the frame rate as well. However, the developers have made it clear that this update will not be fixing everything at once. There are still issues that need to be resolved with future updates.
The frame rate has been a primary issue for the community, especially at higher resolutions. The latest update does improve the frame rate a higher resolution (1440p) but the difference is minor. Still, the game manages to stay above 50+ FPS for the most part while running on a GTX1070 with i7 6700K, 16GB 2400Mhz RAM.
With everything maxed out, post and pre-patch comparison solidified the fact that Battlegrounds require more fixes. Of course, it is an early access game and there is plenty still left to do for PlayerUnknown. PlayerUnknown stressed that the players should feel free to provide feedback on Steam or on the official website.
The previous update was also a significant one so the pattern suggests that PlayerUnknown is taking note of the feedback before releasing performance and content updates.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Early Access month 1 update not only made improvements to the game’s performance but also added the highly demanded CrossBow. The bow was removed from the game recently but the developers brought it back after fan-demand. On top of that, we now have motorcycles as well.
Full patch notes include a massive changelog for your game. Battlegrounds is now available on PC for $29.99 in early access.
