PUBG On Xbox Gets Performance Patch

Bluehole has released patch notes for its latest version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox Game Preview, with some small changes aimed at improving the play experience for Xbox players. 

In-game, players can expect new options to adjust aim acceleration in-game, and player weapon damage has moved up when combating vehicles, among other minor adjustments. Server and client-side FPS has also been slightly increased, which should be welcome news to players frustrated by stutter. Perhaps most importantly, the new patch attempts to address some of the crashes that are ending matches prematurely for some players. 

Check out the full patch notes from Bluehole.

Sony Expects PlayStation VR Library To Nearly Double In 2018

If you took the PlayStation VR plunge, this could be an interesting year for you. The virtual-reality library could be expanding by nearly 80 percent before the end of 2018, if Sony's expectations pan out.

Speaking to Nikkei, the company says the slate of games on the PlayStation VR platform could jump from 150 to 280. The company cites hardware sales figures that now surpass two million PSVR units – perhaps driven, in part, by recent price cuts – as one of the catalysts for a surge in new development.

Varric From Dragon Age Gets His Novel Published For Real

Varric Tethras, a chest-haired dwarf with a dry sense of humor, is a beloved character in the Dragon Age series. In the world of Thedas, he's also a successful author, due to his novel Hard in Hightown. Now, his work of fiction is getting a real-life release.

Thanks to publishers Dark Horse Books and Penguin Random House, Hard in Hightown will soon be readable in its entirety for $20. The illustrated novel is just under a hundred pages, telling a crime thriller tale about rival cult factions in Kirkwall, a city most Dragon Age 2 fans are familiar with. You can read a description of the book below:

Twenty years of patrols have chiseled each and every stone of the Kirkwall streets into city guardsmen Donnen Brennokovic. Weary and weathered, Donnen is paired with a recruit so green he might as well have leaves growing out of his armor. When the mismatched pair discover a dead magistrate bleeding out on the flagstones, they’re caught up in a clash between a shadowy organization known only as the Executors and a secretive group of Chantry agents–all over some ancient artifact.
