PUBG‘s creators have heard player pleas to “fix the game,” and they’ve launched a new website claiming they’re ready to do just that.

PUBG Corp, developer of popular battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, has launched an official site called FIX PUBG as part of a new campaign to address the game’s bugs and create a “better, more stable, and fairer game.”

“This is a phrase that we’ve been hearing a lot lately,” reads a site statement, referencing the common player complaint, “Fix the game.”

“Our dev team is gearing up for battle. Our mission: Destroy bugs, deliver long-needed quality-of-life features, and take PUBG to the next level by shipping fundamental performance improvements.”

According to the site, the “FIX PUBG” campaign will run over the next three months, until October. In a smart moment of transparency, the team have laid out their plans in a detailed roadmap, so players can see exactly what updates and fixes are in store, and what’s already been completed.

“We’re dedicating the vast majority of our resources to addressing your issues with the game and implementing your suggested improvements,” states the team, who intend to update the roadmap as they check things off. Of course, new issues that come to light will be added, so the website will evolve.

So far, the team has completed some important improvements, including optimised data loading — the average time to load data for a level has decreased from 14.4 seconds to 5.6 seconds.

Still in progress are issues like character optimisation, improving the server tick rate (when players are in close proximity, this rate slows down and can cause delays when picking up items, for example), improved anti-hack and anti-cheat solutions (hello, Sanhok), and faster and smarter matchmaking. Plus, for the console diehards, they have a section detailing the road to the game’s full release on Xbox.

With the Fornite vs. PUBG battle continuing to roll on, PUBG’s plan to solve game issues like this is a necessary move, especially with such transparency.
