Very recently Bluehole decided to bring in a few changes to, PUBG HQ Texture Rendering. The reason to make such changes was due to the powerful hardware inside Microsoft console. The changes brought in the more gradual loading of those HQ textures, which was an attempt to prevent the dropping of frames. However, these changes in the game seem to have not been warmly welcomed. Fortunately, the devs have taken notice yet again and are planning to bring further optimizations, in PUBG HQ Texture Rendering.
In the community weekly post of PUBG, community manager Lumos wrote,
“As many of our Xbox players are aware, the Xbox One X utilizes a more detailed world than the OG/S versions due to their powerful GPU for 4K resolution. Thus, X users are able to see textures in higher quality, but it also means that the X requires more resources to output these textures compared to OG and S. Because of this, it took longer to load textures, and even caused issues with dropped frames.”
Addressing this issue seems to have calmed down fans, for now, furthermore explaining the improvements that have been brought in, he said,
“To mitigate these types of issues and to create more fair looting and combat situations, we decided to make the rendering process to display the highest quality textures more gradual. This means buildings will load faster, allowing you to get in and start looting quickly, with the texture quality gradually increasing until it’s fully rendered at the highest quality.”
Then coming to the main objective, he has assured fans that the company realizes that even such changes, have some issues and are not been welcomed by the fans and that is why Bluehole plans, to further optimize PUBG HQ Texture Rendering for Xbox One X.
“The changes we made currently aren’t being liked by many of our X users. We plan to further optimize the rendering process so the higher quality textures can be rendered faster without dropping frames.”
Hopefully this time it would be for the better. Talking about PUBG, do you think it should be free to play in order to compete with its competitor, Fortnite?
