Last year, we introduced Cross-Platform Play for PUBG on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, which allowed players from each platform to be matched into the same matchmaking pool.
Today, we are thrilled to announce that we are taking it a step further in our goal of unifying our console communities. The new Cross-Party Play feature will be implemented with Update 6.2, granting the ability for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players to party up together. Now, you won’t just be matched against players on the other platform, but you’ll be able to party up and drop as a squad.
With Cross-Party Play, you’ll be able to:
- Party up with players on other console platforms
- Search for, friend, and/or invite players on other console platforms
- Mute players from other console platforms in the lobby and during a match
- Join the same custom match created on either platform
The Friends list is receiving an overhaul with Cross-Party Play. Depending on the platform that you play on, you’ll see your Xbox Live or PlayStation+ Friends at the top, with Friends from the other platform indicated under “PUBG Friends.”
It’s here that you’ll be able to search, friend, block, and invite players from both consoles. In addition, you’ll see a Recent tab that displays players who you recently played with.
Before we wrap up, we wanted to show you a sweet infographic with facts and data about Cross Platform Play that you might not have known.
We hope you enjoyed the hot takes from Cross Platform Play! Now, gather your friends on both Xbox and PS4 because it’s time to party like never before and drop into the Battlegrounds — together.
