PUBG’s 6.2 update will let Xbox One and PS4 players party up
PUBG Corp. has revealed that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ upcoming 6.2 update will allow Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players to join the same party.
The developer previously allowed players on both consoles to matchmake together, but did not allow for parties to be formed across consoles. This will change with the release of update 6.2 next week and the introduction of cross party play.
This new feature will be joined by a revamped friends list that will allow players to search for friends on both platforms. This new friends list features four tabs that will show players friends from their platform, friends from another platform, recently met players, and current teammates.
As previously announced, update 6.2 will also introduce a new 8v8 Team Deathmatch mode, make adjustments to grenades, add a new way point feature, update the Blue Zone effects, and more. Read more about the upcoming changes here.
Update 6.2 is scheduled to arrive on live servers next week on February 26th. However, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players can currently try out these changes on the test server.
