PUBG will run at 30 FPS on Xbox One X

By: Ryan Cox | December 2nd, 2017

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds comes to Xbox One and Xbox One X in just under two weeks as a part of Xbox Game Preview, and PlayerUnknown himself, the creative mind behind the battle royale genre, has made a new statement about the game’s frame rate on the Xbox console family.

Previously, it was believed that PUBG would be able to operate at a higher framrate for its Xbox Game Preview release, particularly on the souped up Xbox One X console. Unfortunately for fans expecting more, PlayerUnknown confirmed that the game will run at 30 frames-per-second on all Xbox One family consoles. It is unknown whether or not the Xbox One X is being held back to prevent issues with gameplay between different generations of the Xbox One.

On the bright side, Battlegrounds still has a plenty of momentum. At Geoff Keighley’s annual Game Awards, fans will witness the exclusive reveal of Battlegrounds’ first ever new map—a desert-themed battleground.

PUBG Corp and Bluehole Studio provide frequent updates on the game’s sustain and development, so if plans change regarding the game’s frame rate on Xbox One, we’ll be sure to let you know.
