PUBG Crossplay Across Xbox One and PS4 Announced; Will Launch Early October
During Microsoft’s 2019 Gamescom episode of Inside Xbox, PUBG Corp has announced PUBG Crossplay across Xbox One and PlayStation.
Alongside the reveal of PUBG Season 4, PUBG Corp. took the stage to reveal that crossplay between the consoles is on its way. Cross-platform play will become available on the game’s Public Test Server beginning late September and will be available on PUBG’s live servers early October.
“Next, we are thrilled to announce that cross-platform play is coming to PUBG on consoles!”, PUBG Corp writes. “This has been, hands down, the most requested feature since we launched on consoles and we’re so happy to finally provide this for our console community on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.”
“Our first goal with cross-platform play was for 100 players from both console communities to be able to play in the same match. Our second goal was to improve our matchmaking times, which we expect to be shorter for due to the wider matchmaking pool. Shorter wait times and more enemies on the battlegrounds = more opportunities to earn those chicken dinners. WIN.”
In addition to enabling crossplay between PS4 and Xbox One, PUBG Corp. also announced faster updates for both consoles. “Console players will be able to dive into content sooner than ever before as updates will launch within two weeks of their PC counterpart. Starting Aug. 27, PUBG Season 4 will release on console and all-in game content will be aligned across all platforms. All subsequent console updates will then land two weeks after its release on PC.”
PUBG is available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 globally now. The Battle-Royale is also available on mobile devices.
