If you were an avid PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds player who enjoyed the game but moved on over bug and hacker-related frustrations, then PUBG Corp. hears you loud and clear. The company is hoping to rein you back in with a massive campaign to fix the game’s glaring issues.
Called “FIX PUBG” the expansive and detailed plan will hammer out the game’s lingering issues over the course of the next three months. PUBG has come a long way since its 1.0 release last December, but there’s still plenty of problems. The developer knows it.
“[Fix PUBG] is a phrase that we’ve been hearing a lot lately,” PUBG Corp. said in a statement. “Bugs, performance problems, and quality-of-life issues have been limiting PUBG’s true potential, and you want it fixed. So we think it’s time to do something about it. “FIX PUBG” is a months-long campaign to deliver the changes and improvements that you’ve been asking for. We’ve created a roadmap with specific details about our plans, and we intend to update it as we go, checking things off as we deliver on our promises.”
The road map of fixes is split into five categories—Client performance, server performance, anti-cheat, matchmaking, and bug fix and quality of life issues. The FIX PUBG website has an extensive look at the road map, which is interactive and has details for each category.
You can find all of the specific info on the website, but in short, the plan is to optimize PUBG to run better on every machine. This also includes improving desync, server tick rate, and anti-cheat.
“Securing competitive integrity means taking out the cheaters,” the website says. PUBG Corp. is planning additional improved solutions for fixing the hacking epidemic, like detecting and banning cheaters by restricting access to game memory, detecting hacks that previously succeeded, securing an extra line of defense, and fundamentally blocking cheaters by using various methods.
