Black Desert update adds cross-play support between Xbox One and PS4
A new update for Pearl Abyss’ MMORPG Black Desert bridges the gap between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with the introduction of cross-platform play support.
Following the update, players will be able to choose between cross-platform servers or platform-exclusive servers. In addition to playing together, players can communicate with each other using in-game chat regardless of platform and guilds can recruit from either platform.
As for Node Wars and Conquest Wars, both have been suspended on cross-platform servers until March 7th.
Pearl Abyss has also added the Archer character class and Kamasylvia region to PlayStation 4 to achieve content parity with the Xbox One version of the game. Read the full patch notes for both platforms here.
Finally, Black Desert will be discounted by 50 percent for PlayStation Plus subscribers (25 percent without) on PlayStation 4 until March 18th and by 50 percent for all Xbox One owners until March 16th.
