PUBG is now available on Xbox One via Xbox Game Preview. The first Xbox One oriented patch has been deployed. The patch mends some of the issues players have been having with their motorcycles and anti-aliasing.

PUBG for Xbox is now a thing and that means more news about PUBG. PUBG. Even though the game is still in Xbox Game Preview, some people are playing it and reporting back the various bugs they encounter. The devs, in turn, throw together a patch to fix the known issues. The usual tango.

The "first of many Xbox-focused" patches went live this morning. If you notice that your version of the game hasn't been updated, the first thing you need to check is if you are indeed playing on an Xbox One. If the answer is a resounding yes, then go ahead and restart your machine. The next thing you should notice is your screen going dark for a moment.

Let's see what exactly you get for your trouble: The new patch has made exactly one change to PUBG's gameplay: "Gas can now be used while on bike or bike with sidecar". Another change made to the in-game motorcycles is that their controls are no longer inverted. All you console folks out there are probably losing your minds right about now. 

Well, the party is just getting started. Get ready to have a constant visual on the equipment icons in your HUD, and for your UI to remind you to reload a weapon or enter a vehicle. You know, big boy stuff.
