Another day and boy, is there a lot of gaming news to go through today – PUBG announcing a hotfix update for their glitch on Xbox One; you can get a copy of Devil May Cry HD if you’re a Twitch Prime subscriber, details about Far Cry Arcade – Far Cry 5’s map editor, and finally, plenty of game and DLC launches. Well, that’s just the gist of it; here are the gaming highlights of the day.
PUBG Hotfix For Xbox One
PUBG had previously released a new update for the Xbox One version of PUBG. While the update brought about a new weapon, it also brought about a revival glitch, that allows downed players to get back into the action without having to be revived completely by their teammates. Thankfully, the team has realized its mistake and has announced the details of its upcoming hotfix.
As announced in an official forum post, the Hotfix Update (Patch 10) for the Xbox One will fix the following bugs:
- Revive bug
- Footstep/Single Fire Weapon Audio
- B and Y buttons functional while the in-game map is activated
- A handful of minor low-risk fixes.
The post further goes on to state that a version of the release build is in test, with a final version to be submitted to Cert and QA tomorrow.
