PUBG has just been given a brand new update on Xbox One.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds update 8 is available from 9am UK time for Xbox One.

As part of the new patch, PUBG developer has once again changed the damage received by vehicles.

After feedback from fans, Bluehole has decided to revert back to the old system of increased damage when hit by a vehicle.

Needless to say, the new Battlegrounds update also contains a host of bug fixes and gameplay tweaks.

According to the patch notes, the camera will remain in the correct position following a player's death. Likewise, vehicles will no longer move to another position on the map when players disembark.


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.
