Comments

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) recently released released patch 6.2 on PC, adding a team deathmatch mode to the game. The update will make its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game soon too, and is now available on the Public Test Server.

Beyond everything else included in the patch, this update will finally allow players to make cross-platform parties, meaning that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players can party up before the beginning of a match.

While cross-play has been available for some time now, this is a new feature, and it'll make it much easier for players to team up with their friends on other systems. Previously, a PUBG match could be populated with players from either console, but parties could only be formed by players on the same console; as of 6.2, that restriction will no longer be in place.

This means that the game, which was once an Xbox One console exclusive, will now bring let PS4 and Xbox One gamers play together more easily than ever.

PUBG is currently available through Xbox Game Pass, which costs $10 a month. You can currently get Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $1 for your first month and $15 a month after that--Ultimate includes Game Pass for console and PC as well as Xbox Live Gold. You can purchase PUBG for $30 on PS4.

PUBG Season 6 is currently underway, and a new map, Karakin, was recently added to the popular battle royale shooter.
