PUBG Battlegrounds has been given a new update on Xbox One, although fortunately no downtime is required.
“We’re putting out a hotfix today to improve directional sprinting and loading times when entering matches,” reads a Bluehole post.
According to the new PUBG patch notes, the new Battlegrounds update makes improvements in two key areas.
The latest hotfix is said to improve sprinting on Xbox One, as well as loading.
This was detailed in a recent Battlegrounds blog in which the developer spoke of its desires to enhance the console experience.
The big change is that movement is now more freeform, giving players the chance to move in more directions.
Loading, meanwhile, should be handled more efficiently by the game.

Analog Character Movement
“With the previous hotfix which introduced analog movement, sprinting diagonally using L-stick became much more difficult.
“To address this, we’ve widened the angle of movement for sprinting diagonally. Now the character will be able to sprint at a wider angle before having their speed reduced.
“Sudden hard changes in direction will still slow the player down (as it will break your tendons in real life).”
“Files have been repackaged to load more efficiently.
“Now, the time it takes to load into a game will be quicker. After our previous hotfix, players had reported experiencing a number of issues while trying to load into matches and this hotfix addresses those issues.
“Because we’ve repackaged the files to improve load times, the patch size will be quite large, despite this being a hotfix. We will continue to work on desync, sound issues and of course continue fixing bugs as well.”
