PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG has come up with a new hotfix for the Xbox One gamers, to solve some issues and offer new features. The new changes provide better frame rates along with features taken from the PC version of the game too.
Apart from the BP exchange, some really cool and important features have been added for the Xbox One X version of the game. Graphical settings have been reduced, though the texture and resolution quality remain the same. That means that the shadows and reflection may appear to be slightly decreased.
For maintaining smoothness in the lobby, in between the matches, the customization menu has been optimized with an inventory system to reduce input lag.
The BP (Battle Points) exchange which has been added to the Xbox One X version supports only exchanging weapon skins for BP, right now. If you don’t want a skin anymore, you can press ‘Y’ and hover over it for transforming it into an extra BP, which you can later use to purchase other items for customizing your character-various weapon skins have different exchange rates.
