A new update is coming very soon for the Xbox One version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. According to the official patch notes, Update 12 adds a new free crate and introduces a few "crucial bug fixes."
The new crate is called the Western Military Crate, and it can be obtained using Battle Points. The most common items you can receive inside are standard clothing such as the Tank Top and the Polo Shirt (both of which have a drop rate of 20%), while rarer items include the Military Skirt (0.0064%) and the Cowboy Hat (0.0128%).
In terms of fixes, the update resolves an issue where vehicles would "flip or get airtime for no reason." It's also fixed a problem where riding a heavier vehicle would cause a player to incorrectly receive more damage. Take a look at the full list of patch notes at the bottom of this article, via developer PUBG Corp.
PUBG's Xbox One version will receive the desert map, Miramar, next month. The PC version, meanwhile, currently has a third map in testing and has received a new mode that adds respawns. In related news, PUBG and Fortnite now have Battle Royale competition in the form of Radical Heights, a new game from Lawbreakers studio Boss Key.
PUBG Xbox One Update 12 Patch Notes
Optimization And Stabilization
- Partially optimized the vehicle system. The dust effect caused by friction with the ground during driving has especially been optimized, and the vehicle system has been improved in part.
- Fixed a problem with voice chat that caused some crashes.
- Grass objects in Erangel have been optimized and will continue to be optimized going forward.
- Fixed a serious bug that caused vehicles to flip or get airtime for no reason. This includes the three-wheel bike.
- Fixed an issue where under certain circumstances the character would be upside down or seated in a strange position when moving seats while riding in vehicles.
- Player will receive more damage in a vehicle collision. The heavier the vehicle, the greater the damage inflicted upon the player. Also, players are now more likely to die or be knocked out when colliding with a vehicle running at high speed.
- The vehicle passenger will receive more damage when the vehicle crashes into an obstacle like a wall or tree. When crashing into something at high speed on a smaller vehicle, such as a motorcycle, the player will take much more damage.
- Fixed issue causing the 4x scope to be excessively reflective.
Other Bug Fixes
- Fixed issue causing certain UI layouts not being properly aligned.
- Fixed issue of buttons bound to the UI(map, inventory etc.) affecting vehicle operation.
- Fixed issue of equipment icons not shown properly on the HUD.
- Fixed issue of LT, RT scrolling not working in the inventory when using controller preset B.
- Fixed issue of excessive acceleration when the stick is tilted more than a certain angle depending on the R stick acceleration setting.

Scheduled Fixes For Identified Issues
- Removed collision of the discarded magazine on the floor after reloading.
- Fixed a cosmetic bug that occurred when characters wore certain clothing or shoes.
- Fixed issue of fonts breaking up in case of certain languages.
- When changing the dead zone settings in the lobby, the options screen needs to be opened once again for the settings to be reflected. This issue will be fixed soon.
