With the release of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S now just two weeks away, the dev team for battle royale PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has unveiled how the game will run via backwards compatibility on the new systems.
First, the specs. The Xbox Series X version will leverage the Xbox One X game build, allowing for 60 frames per-second via the Framerate Priority option. The Xbox Series S will be locked to 30FPS for now due to leveraging the Xbox One S version, but the team is working on an option to raise that cap in the future.
"After rigorous testing, we’re pleased to say that the game performance is extremely smooth and stable, with faster loading and little to no frame drops thanks to the power of next-gen."
Naturally, you'll also be able to take advantage of cross-generation multiplayer (so you can play with your friends on Xbox One), and cross-platform play will remain in place as well.
To demonstrate the improvements, VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb recently uploaded a video showing how efficiently PUBG runs on the Xbox Series X (featuring its near-locked 60FPS frame rate), which you can watch above.
"Game performance and stability is a priority for us and we want to thank everyone for their support. This is an exciting time for console players everywhere, and we hope to ring it in with you with plenty of chicken dinners!"
