Xbox One news: PUBG update, Halo 6 reveal and new Game Pass lineup | Gaming | Entertainment

A new PUBG Xbox One update has been launched, bringing with it some big changes.

Patch 9 was deployed earlier this week and it includes some good performance improvements.

Fans have also noticed a new glitch has been added to the game that can come in pretty useful.

A new Revive bug looks to have snuck in with the latest PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds update and is being used to full-effect by players.

Fans are reporting that they can start reviving a teammate for a few seconds, then stop and walk away.

This usually ends with the player reviving themselves the rest of the way, helpful for those who play in teams.

Players can now stand guard while this is going on, although it probably won’t go on for long.

Developers Bluehole Inc. are likely to launch a quick hotfix to remove the glitch, if it is seen as potentially game breaking.

After a few weeks without any console updates, the new PUBG patch adds some pretty big new features.

Most notably, update 9 adds DVR support for Xbox One. Enabled in the settings menu, DVR will automatically record gameplay clips.

Bluehole has also fixed a ton of bugs and introduced new localisation options.

The only downside is that there’s still no sign of the Miramar desert map. Hopefully we should find out the release date during the Bluehole developer roadmap.

The Xbox One games list has got a handful of exclusives that have fans excited for the months to come.

It will all kick off with Sea of Thieves in April, followed by other games like State of Decay 2 and Crackdown 3.

But there’s one exclusive that Xbox One fans are keen to hear more about too.

And while Halo 6 is unlikely to launch in 2018, Xbox One owners will be hoping for some kind of announcement this year.

We do know that there is a team working on Halo 6, although it’s unclear just when they will reveal more about it.

A good guess would be E3 in June, where other big news will be shared about the Xbox brand.

The latest update we got on Halo 6 was from Microsoft this month.

A 343 developers post confirmed that a lot of work is being done to Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

However, it came with the update that these new MCC and Halo 5 projects will not steer any resources away from Master Chief’s next big adventure.

“A small but experienced team here within 343 has taken on the charter of supporting many of Halo’s “legacy” titles, with MCC currently being their number one priority,” the 343 message reads.

“There’s a wealth of experience and expertise on the team including engineers, designers, and test leads who are intimately familiar with what’s good, and not so good, with the Master Chief Collection.

“This team is completely separate from the broader 343 team working on the next Halo FPS title. There’s zero overlap or shared resources to ensure that the larger game team can remain laser focused on the future.

“I’ve read some posts from fans who are concerned that we’re cracking open MCC at the expense of the next Halo FPS title – rest assured that while MCC is incredibly important to the studio, in no way is this work interfering or taking away from the next big thing.

“We are committing the necessary resources to do both projects right.”

Xbox One Games Pass subscribers are in for a treat in March 2018.

Microsoft has announced the March 2018 Games Pass releases, which include Sea of Thieves and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

It’s all part of Microsoft’s new initiative to make first-party games available for Games Pass at launch.

“On January 23 we announced a major expansion to Xbox Game Pass that underscores our commitment to deliver our fans the ultimate gaming membership – by launching all new Xbox One exclusive games from Microsoft Studios into Xbox Game Pass on the same date as their global release,” Microsoft explains.

“And we are incredibly excited on March 20 to bring critically acclaimed Sea of Thieves to Xbox Game Pass members the same day as its global release.”

The other new Xbox Games Pass releases will join the service on March 1.
