Even though PUBG‘s reign as the King of the battle royale genre might be over thanks to Fortnite, it still has a highly dedicated fanbase on both the PS4 & XB1.
That fanbase is about to receive a highly requested feature as cross-play between the PS4 and XB1 arrives late September, with full release in October.
Cecilia Lee, Community Manager at the PUBG Corporation broke the news today.
Next, we are thrilled to announce that cross platform play is coming to PUBG on consoles! 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.
Cross platform play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 gamers will be available for testing on the PUBG Public Test Server (PTS) beginning in late September and will hit live servers in early October. Be sure to look out for further details and patch notes on our official website and forums.
Will you be returning to the battlefield of PUBG or are your days of chicken dinners over?
