PUBG Xbox One Update: The new Miramar map news fans have been waiting for

PUBG only recently got a big update on the Xbox One, but already the game's devout developers are keen on making sure the game doesn't stagnate on the platform.

In a post on the PUBG forums, communications lead PUBG_Riggles noted that it's been four months since the game launched on Microsoft's console, and there's still a lot of work to do.

He mentions that the new map - Miramar - is almost ready for deployment on the console, and will be coming to test servers before the end of April - hitting live servers before the end of May.

"Our Xbox team has been constantly working on optimizations and bugfixes, alongside all the features we promised in the Xbox spring roadmap. Today we want to share a little more about the content drops and improvements we’ll be shipping to PUBG over the next couple of months," the post states.

"The Miramar test server update will also include new vehicles and weapons, alongside several crucial gameplay optimizations. Here are just two examples:

• Our art asset streaming process has been optimized. This will somewhat improve the “play-doh” effect on textures and will mitigate interior prop pop-in issues. This will make a big difference in the early phases of each game.

• Our character movement system was also causing some problems, and has now been optimized. Performance and stability will be better even when many players gather in one location. We expect this to help out the game’s performance past the mid-phase."

PUBG Corp continues by stating:

"Expect to also see new and improved designs for out-of-game menus and screens. The update is necessary to prepare our servers for when event matches and custom matches are introduced later on.

"Finally, improving crashes is our highest priority. Simply put, stability is the most basic element that determines gameplay quality, so we’re taking it seriously and focusing on it with every patch. All of these changes will hit the test server first so we can make sure the above-mentioned optimizations run well before pushing them to live.

"It's been a significant challenge for our team to bring a massive open world game like PUBG to life on console, and we're working hard to staff up our development resources so we can invest more in the game and the community. The feedback we get from players is great motivation for us, so we want to say: thank you. Thanks for your feedback, your patience and your support throughout this journey."

That bodes well for the new map - you can expect to see Miramar drop into the game sometime in May (we'd say fairly early May, if this roadmap is accurate).

This comes after PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds players have got a brand new Xbox One update, released yesterday.

Developers Bluehole Inc and the games Communications Lead (PUBG_Riggles) confirmed the news on their PUBG forums last night and now the update is officially live and ready to be downloaded for all Xbox players.

The new patch notes have also been released and include news on what's changed in the games latest build - Patch Notes 12.

Whilst most of the update is focussed on bug fixes and general gameplay optimisation, there's also a brand new Western Military Crate available.

This now means players can unlock vintage gas masks, battle belts and even cowboy hats. Further details on drop rates can be found here: Patch 12

It should be noted that fans who download the new PUBG update will also need to restart their Xbox after the patch goes live.

News of this latest patch comes after the team announced at PAX East that they are introducing the Miramar map to Xbox this May. Let's hope they've ironed out enough bugs from the original Erangel map.
