PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Passes 3 Million Players on Xbox One

The patches for PUBG on Xbox One are coming thick and fast, with the fifth update released this morning at 4AM GMT as a priority fix for an out of bounds glitch that let people cheat their way to victory.

This is the kind of software that moves hardware that Microsoft has been lacking since the launch of the system back in 2013.

Following this week's PC update to Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, the developer has now addressed a number of specific issues in the Xbox One version of the game.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) latest Xbox One update delivers some welcome improvements to aiming and weapon management.

However, one of the biggest changes in the new update is that pistols are no longer grouped with primary weapons, and are now equipped by pressing "Up" on the d-pad instead of using the Y button. After leaving early access (and reaching 30 million players) at the tail end of previous year, it came to the Xbox Game Preview program on December 12, where it clearly has found an equally passionate fanbase.
