PUBG Corp shared a video addressing the quality of life changes it planned to release in June.

The PUBG features discussed in the video include a new controller preset, map cursor speed adjustments and automatically equipping attachments.

Lead project manager for PUBG consoles Joon H. Choi explained in the video that the new controller preset was designed to make moving, aiming, leaning and firing during combat independent of one another. Choi says this will let players "have less difficulty navigating the environment and better focus on combat."

The map cursor speed adjustment will allow players to raise and lower the speed of the map cursor on the fly, allowing for faster and more precise map marking.

Console live service manager Kate Lee explained in the video that auto equip attachments should give players more time to "focus on the strategic part of PUBG, but still enjoy the realistic feel that PUBG is known for."

This is a common refrain from PUBG Corp, as any quality of life changes threaten to reduce what some see as the essential hardcore aspect of the game.

"We are well aware many users are worried that the convenience functions might make PUBG easier and ruin PUBG's intrinsic fun," console development division producer Koo Sung Jeong said in the video, "which is why we are taking caution to make sure the new functions don't interfere with the game's intrinsic fun."

"The convenience functions for PUBG console are not trying to make the game easier, but aiming to reduce any inconvenience so that our users can focus on PUBG's key game plays and enjoy the game's intrinsic fun."

PUBG Xbox Update 8 added these features to live servers Thursday.
