PUBG gets a new “Frame Rate Priority” mode that pushes Battle Royale to 60fps with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 on some consoles.

It supports multiplayer between generations along with multi-platform play, which means that Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S and PS5 players can team up and play against each other.
The Xbox Series X uses the Xbox One X compilation, which runs at 60fps through the Framerate Priority option. However, the less powerful Xbox Series S uses the Xbox One S game compilation, which runs at 30 frames per second. “We’re working to provide an option to increase the frame rate limit on the Xbox One S and Xbox Series S in the future,” the developers said.
The PS5 uses the PS4 Pro compilation as you would expect. And using the Framerate Priority option gives you up to 60 frames per second.
This boost in frame rate is welcome for PUBG, which is struggling in the performance department of base consoles. But fans who take the Xbox Series S will be disappointed that the frame rate will not reach 60, as in the X. The fingers of cross-developers may make it work soon.
