Bluehole announced the Xbox One and Xbox One X ports of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds at Microsoft’s E3 press conference and since then the studio has not really talked about it. Now the studio has opened up about the Xbox One port of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
Speaking with Eurogamer, creator Brendan Greene talked about the Xbox One and Xbox One X ports of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and revealed that the team already has the game running on the console at 30-40 FPS on 100 men servers which indicates that the game might need a bit more optimization or the studio might settle for 30 FPS on the console.
We have a version running on the Xbox One X prototype in the office which can plug into the online servers. We were playing on live servers on the console at about 30 or 40 FPS. So it works on 100 man servers.
This is the first time the studio has revealed the frame rate of the game on the console. However, we might have to wait to get the game on the consoles as the team is currently getting the PC version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in shape.
In related news, Bluehole studio has also detailed the August update for the game. The update was supposed to drop this week but, due to some complications, the update has been pushed to 3rd August. The August update for the game will introduce 1st person servers to NA and EU servers and only for SOLO & DUO game-modes.
Also, the studio has confirmed that players will have much more customization options for their characters. Chang Han Kim, Bluehole’s executive producer mentioned that the developers are working on adding a lot more customization options to the game.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a multiplayer survival game currently in early access for PC and will launch for consoles later.
