PUBG 6.2 Update Comes to Console, Adds Cross-Platform Parties, Team Deathmatch

The free update also includes a playtest for PUBG's upcoming ranked mode.


The latest free update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has come to consoles. The 6.2 patch first came to PC in late February, adding an 8-on-8 team deathmatch mode to the game, as well as fixing a bundle of bugs.

On console, in addition to the above, the update adds a much-requested feature in the form of cross-party play. This will allow players on PS4 and Xbox One to form parties regardless of what console they're playing on. Though PUBG has had cross-play for a while now, this will allow Sony and Microsoft devotees to come together under the cause of getting an elusive chicken dinner.
