PUBG Update 6.2 Will Add PS4 And Xbox One Cross-Play
PUBG console players will have an easier time teaming up with their friends after update 6.2.
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.
