New Xbox One patch LIVE, including Battlegrounds notes

PUBG Corporation seems to have found a victor no matter what platform it's on, and Microsoft seems to have found a game that is actually getting people to play the Xbox One for once.

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

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

Pistols have been removed from Y button's weapon rotation and grouped with the melee weapon. The game is still included in Xbox One's Game Preview program, with no specific word on when it will go into its full retail release on console.

Enhanced server performance while parachuting.

Holding LT to aim down sight.

User is unable to switch grenade types when tapping right on the D-Pad.

A message from Bluehole Inc. confirms: "As part of that update, we have chose to include some additional performance and gameplay improvements, as well as a new controller option". The Y button now simply switches between your two main guns, with the pistol now mapped to up on the D-pad, and there's a second control preset so that you can hold the trigger to aim down sights instead of having it as a dual-purpose toggle.

Controller guide has been updated to include the new controller preset.

Additional memory and non-memory related crash fixes.

Prior to the update, players in the midst of a firefight would sometimes have to cycle through their pistol to get to their better weapon.

In the post Greenberg thanks the community for supporting the game during its first month, but also acknowledges that there is still room for PUBG to improve on Xbox One.
