We’ve included the full release notes for the new update down below:

Gameplay 

We received a lot of great feedback following the changes made to vehicle/player damage. We continue to tune and balance this element of gameplay, and are therefore reverting back to increased damage if a player is struck by a vehicle.

The game’s development team made changes to vehicle damage in the previous preview update. We’ve included those changes down below:

We’ve listened to your feedback and further modified the damage players can inflict on vehicles, increasing areas of vulnerability. This includes:

  • Increased damage to the vehicle body, and significant damage to the wheels when targeted with gunfire
  • Increased vehicle damage when successfully targeted with a grenade
  • Both driver and passenger will suffer increased injuries from crashing into objects or other vehicles (Dacia, UAZ, and Buggy)
  • Slight reduction to player damage when being struck by a vehicle

Bluehole advises to restart your Xbox One console after the patch has been deployed to get the download.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now for both Xbox One and PC through Steam. Since its PC release back in March of last year, the game has surpassed 30 million players across both platforms.
