Tonight's PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds patch adds loot crates and a new report function

PUBG Xbox One

BLUEHOLEPUBG Battlegrounds is proving extremely popular on Xbox One

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was well on its a way to growing its user base to such a large size after its launch on Xbox One, despite the game releasing in a relatively poor state on the platform past year.

Microsoft announced the milestone overnight, clearly pleased with itself for bringing the gaming sensation of 2017 to Xbox One before Sony looks anywhere near doing similar for PlayStation 4. And when it launched on Xbox One a month ago, it was widely criticized for amplifying these issues. As a matter of fact, PUBG managed to draw in a huge crowd with a player count of over 1 million within its first 48 hours of being available for Microsoft's current generation console in "early access". Hats off to Brendan Greene and Bluehole for their masterpiece. We know that PUBG sold over 20 million copies on PC but we didn't have any idea what the recent player count was on Xbox One. Now, "you no longer need to be killed by a suspected cheater for you to be able to use the in-game reporting tool", as you can report players directly from the replay feature. "[The studio has] already released four updates since the game's launch in Xbox Game Preview on December 12". This is because PUBG has loot boxes, and China has more strict regulations when it comes to those. These noticeable gains have given some fans confidence that the developer will get close to a steady 30 frames per second across all Xbox One platforms. PUBG Corp says that they have fixed many crashing issues on the Xbox One.

The Xbox One version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is going to continue seeing improvements, too. "See you in-game, The PUBG Development and Community Team". At the moment, PlayerUnknown's Battleground (PUBG) is an early access game, but that hasn't stopped countless Xbox One owners from playing it.

The new crates, which are now only available on the test servers for "PUBG", feature different tiers of rarity and rewards in them, where more elusive crates can be sold for a lot more depending on how saturated the market is.

While it does not affect the chances of winning in-game, players fear that the developers of "PUBG" might soon cross that boundary.
