So most of us at PoweredOn and the world over are in agreement that PUBG Xbox One edition is a potentially great game which currently plays terribly.

The game is plagued with Lag, crashes, incomplete texture loadout, HUD glitches, falling through the map to name but a few of the issues we’re seeing.

Up until this point we’d only had a smattering of “lip service” tweets from Bluehole about the issues but it seems they’ve finally pulled their collective fingers out of their arses and made some improvements.

The patch is a whopping 4.7Gb which is almost bigger than the original game file which weighed in at just 5.2Gb
