Xbox users sure have lots to look forward to, as PUBG Corp's latest Xbox update packs lots of improvements for their survival shooter Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. The devs added automatic highlight recording and a host of other fixes.

PUBG developers thanked the Xbox community for their "perseverance and patience", although to be fair - they had little choice. They claim they've been hard at work with this one, trying to make it count.

The patch adds Game DVR support, allowing users to automatically record in-game highlights - all you need to do is turn the option on in the settings menu.

The patch looks to optimise server and game client performance by introducing multiple starting locations and removing weapons from the starting island. We're not sure we like the latter, but oh well. 

The PUBG team overhauled "textures, landscapes and buildings", optimising them to further improve performance. Four types of common freezing and crash bugs have been fixed in the update.

Vehicles in PUBG seemed to get damaged too often and too severely by silly obstacles, such as rocks and bumps, prompting the devs to address it in the update. There were some adjustments on water effects and red-zone bombing as well.

Party matchmaking was balanced as well and will be influenced by player matchmaking ratings. As for the visual side of the game, the energy drink got a redesign and expect some improvements in squad member visibility.

The PUBG team already noticed a few minor issues, such as a few buttons behaving quirky in certain scenarios, but they should not be much of a problem. There is a host of user interface touch-ups and other improvements, as well as numerous bug fixes.
