PUBG cross-play for Xbox One and PS4 goes live

Console diehards can now parachute into the battle royale and take on the other side.


As promised in August, cross-play for PUBG gamers on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles has gone live with the game's update 4.3. PUBG Corp. tweeted the console news for its Player Unknown's Battlegrounds on its European feed Tuesday morning.

The update lets console players enter the same matchmaking pool, but not party up with players from the other consoles; that's still on the roadmap. 

During matchmaking, PUBG picks players from both consoles, though not players on PC. There's an icon next to the names indicating whether they're playing on a PS4 or an Xbox One. Purists will be able to exclude players from the opposite platform from their leaderboards as well.
