PUBJ joins the cross-play party.
While Fortnite tends to get all the battle royale cred, there was a shooter before it that helped define the genre in PlayerUnknown’s Battleground (or PUBG as it’s mostly referred to). The game still has a sizeable audience as well, and now it joins the ranks of some prestigious other titles with console cross-play.
As announced via the official Twitter, the newest update for the game is live now. But 4.3 isn’t just your normal, run of the mill patch. It will add cross-play between the PS4 and Xbox One alongside some other more minor updates.
While cross-play has become a much more common thing over the last few years, there’s still a relative few games that have cross-play between Sony’s console and the other two on the market. With games like PUBG that barrier is starting to crack somewhat, though there’s still a good ways to go before we see it become a standard.
Console Players: Update 4.3 is now available on live servers!
This update also brings Cross Platform Play, allowing PlayStation and Xbox players to be entered into the same matchmaking pool, as well as Survival Mastery, the DBS, and more!
