developer of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has admitted in a post on Steam that he has failed to improve his performance. The maker now focuses on three priorities: improving performance, server optimization and fighting cheaters.

According to PUBG Corp. In recent years, the necessary improvements have been implemented, but insufficiently listened to players who complained about performance problems in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The developer acknowledges that during the development of the last patches much more complaints have come in about, for example, significant decreases in frame rates, stuttering images and overall slow performance. According to PUBG Corp. these problems are partly due to the client and partly to the servers.

The maker has a number of solutions available that, according to his own words, are relatively simple to implement. For example, too many effects are still being produced when vehicles are driving quickly over different types of terrain, leading to overloaded gpu’s. These effects will probably be reduced in the future. Adjustments are also made to the way light effects are processed.

Optimisations are carried out at the client, for example in the form of the movements of opponents and vehicles in the distance, which the player can not see. Also, the animations of windows and walls jumping are improved, which should mainly benefit players with a PC without powerful hardware. Furthermore, improvements are made during the parachute phase to prevent falls in the fps.

In the area of ​​server processing, among other things, the network code is improved. The latency is also brought down, so that the actions of players have to be seen faster by others. In addition, items will spawn on the folder more quickly.

The period in which the improvements will be implemented has not been announced. PUBG Corp. announces that the new, smaller map Sanhok will be available before the end of June. The test servers for this map have so far been a place to experiment with the various improvements.
