PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) Xbox One update brings various bug fixes

The big new additions are an emote system, which no multiplayer game should ever be without, and a friends list.

The hit Xbox One video game, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (or PUBG for short), received its 10th update since launching on Microsoft's family of consoles this week. You will have 12 default emotes to choose from, though we don't know what they are, and "more emotes will be added in the future".

Here's the complete release notes for the latest PUBG patch. You call up emotes by pressing the tilde key and using a radial menu. However, the friends list is a "one-way follower" concept, a bit like Twitter, not a mutual acceptance between players.

"With this patch, we are bringing various optimizations to our server and client".

According to Bluehole Inc, this will include mitigating lag and stutter instances and alleviated frame drop and lag occurrences happening when players are pushed together.

Another 37 achievements have also been added to the Steam Gaming list today, meaning more for hardcore players to try their luck at.

This should mean a smoother environment to play in, although it won't include the new limb and vehicle penetration system. "Unfortunately, there's been an adjustment in our plans", the PUBG team said, "but we will be sure to give an update on this at a later time".
