Draw distances were noted to be noticeably better on the Xbox one X with CNET reporting instances of the draw distance on the standard Xbox One being so bad that while driving a vehicle objects popped into view split seconds before they crashed into them.
Some fans are a bit displeased over the lack of quality in the Xbox One version of the game, even going as far as requesting a refund for their purchases because of said issue.
PUBG is available now for Xbox One and PC. The Game Preview program is akin to Steam's Early Access where players can enjoy the game despite being a work in progress. As Digital Foundry notes, when you join a game, "You're instantly besieged by low resolution textures that seem to be failing to stream in properly, combined with performance just above or below the 20fps threshold".
Battlegrounds doesn't run particularly well on PC systems, but it is certainly playable, which has helped attribute to the game's wide success. So it nearly seems like the Xbox Game Preview program would've done a world of good here, instead of making players mad over the fact that their game isn't quite as polished as it could've been. "Meanwhile, entering a house, opening a toilet door and exchanging fire with a lurking assailant can see frame-rate dip to 20fps for no reason we can readily come up with".
Despite a poor framerate, the Xbox One X version does offer improved textures and HDR support. Visually, it's a huge improvement over the base console, but in terms of performance, it's just as inconsistent. First impressions appear to be simply terrible with low quality textures and performance around the 20FPS threshold on both Xbox One X and original Xbox One. But performance and visuals are inconsistent, and with Microsoft providing assistance for the port, it's surprising that the versions launched in their current state. The game will be lunched for 30$ on the Xbox Store.
