New PUBG Patch for Xbox to Allow Squads of Any Size

Credit Xbox via Twitter

A new Xbox One PUBG update has been deployed which aims to reduce intermittent in-game lag, and addresses a crashing and authentication issue. The closest competitor to today's numbers? Despite some might think this patch is rather mundane, it's just another example of how PUBG Corp.is always hard at work on ensuring that players are enjoying both versions of the game as much as possible.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds uses a service called BattlEye to detect cheaters and hand down bans. However, to further put this number in perspective, 1.5M bans have been handed out since it's been out.

Not too shabby for a game that only recently exited beta.

After releasing its first patch that focused on performance optimization, the Xbox Game Preview version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has now been updated to give players the ability to play Squad mode without the need to matchmake. This smashes its month old record of 2.8M concurrent users. What's clear is that PUBG is a global phenomenon, and while that's great for players and the developers at Bluehole alike, it's also going to attract an frustrating number of cheaters.
