I first picked up PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS a few months ago on Steam. At first I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into but honestly I think I was just riding the hype train. Loading it up for the first time I instantly knew my PC was going to struggle. Although I met the requirements it still wasn’t enough. The lag was too much at times and I only managed a handful of games before putting the game on the back-burner.
Fast forward to December 2017 and PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS has been released on Xbox One. A lot of my friends were getting it and we had enough people to make a few squads for games. My first game on Xbox was terrible. The squad I was in just had no end of issues. Horrible lag, game crashes and connectivity problems. The second game however was incredibly kinder to us. No one else landed where we were, good loot and we placed 3rd overall which I think wasn’t too bad.
I’ve played around twenty matches so far. I’ve had some terrible matches, some okay and some really good matches. My first solo match I placed 6th overall which I felt wasn’t too bad. Somewhat proud of myself for lasting that long to be honest!
When I do get the chance to upgrade my PC which will hopefully be at some point in 2018, I will definitely be giving the PC version another go.Hopefully it won’t be running on the lowest settings like I am now. Overall though I am really enjoying playing PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS on Xbox One. I still have to learn not to just rush in so much and be cautious around towns but I’m getting there.
Of course the game still has it’s flaws but the game is still in the Game Preview stage. I’m sure there is still lots instore for the console version of the game and of course the PC version as well.
