PUBG Aims at 60FPS on Xbox One X

Brendan Greene has been dropping some details on the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds version that will land on the Xbox One. According to Greene, the game is expected to run at 60 fps on the Xbox One X game console. If you run PUBG on a normal Xbox One S the frame rate will be lower. Exactly how much lower is unclear at the moment.

Greene said, “On Xbox One, we’re not sure. We may have to limit it at 30FPS, maybe, but the last time I saw it, it was running at about 30 to 40. We’re still constantly improving it so, you know, the aim is to get to 60. That’s why we’re doing Game Preview, because I think the great thing about console is it’s a locked hardware system, so we can do really specific tweaks that tune it for those systems.”

If you are hoping for 4K textures on PC and Xbox, you will have to wait longer. Artists are planning for 4K and HDR support, but when those fancy graphics will land is not mentioned. PC gamers can see a preview of the new Desert map on December 7 during The Game Awards reports Engadget.

PUBG has been insanely popular so far on PC and has sold a huge number of copies despite not being officially finished yet. Some PC gamers are upset that the devs opted to build a console version of the game rather than finish and fix the PC version first.

Update: While 60 FPS might be the goal it looks like 30 FPS is what is currently capable on all Xbox One devices!

    30fps is a no buy for a game like this…..

    Not sure what people are complaining about regarding performance on a PC with this game. Runs like a gem on my GTX (vanilla) TITAN….just wish SLI support wasn’t so abysmal.

    Runs 1080p “most” maxed settings 60fps or more…. Just stay away from texture shtuff and foliage and she should run great on decent hardware. Can’t imagine having newer hardware for it.

    Higher FPS on consoles than a top of the line PC runs it at low 1080p… Why people still play this game is beyond me.

    Horrendous reviews with tens of thousands of remorseful buyers, yet more and more people keep buying it, more and more people stay playing it.

    They already broke numerous promises, and missed numerous self set timelines on new features, maps, modes, etc. But hey, at least they’re selling loot box scams for a slim chance to get a random skin you actually want in an early access game that they said they wouldn’t do numerous times beforehand. And thank god they shifted development to console porting instead of finishing the current unfinished, unoptimized, hack filled and unplayably buggy game on PC. Let’s not get started on them getting caught paying streamers, or sucking their ***** every chance they get when they cry “stream sniper”, and their unprofessional and short tempered “CEO” that makes Trump seem like a good and well tempered leader…

    Fortnite on the other hand is doing extremely well, and have stolen hundreds of thousands of players from Battlegrounds while Fortnite has over 20 million unique players which Battlegrounds has yet to reach, with over 1 million concurrent players, and is still climbing as they regularly update the game and add new features/improvements as real developers from proper companies regularly do. Plus, they have a proper microtransaction system where you buy the skins you want vs the EA loot box gambling scams of Battlefront 2, CS GO, Overwatch (though at least this game gives you the crates for free every level up), Quake Champions, etc.
