PUBG cross-play for console players has arrived in PUBG Console Update 6.2. Players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will now be able to invite each other into a single party with this new feature.

While PUBG Corp focused on telling the community about Team Deathmatch, grenade changes, and Karakin loot spawns, cross-platform play has to be the biggest addition.

Players can now search players from both the same and different platform to add friends. PUBG Corp explained the process of joining friends on different systems.

  • Players now can find four tabs on the friends list.
  • Platform: This shows your existing friends list for your current platform. Players you add to your platform specific friends list using their Xbox Live Gamer Tag (Xbox) or PSN Name (PS4) will show here.
  • PUBG: This is the new friends list which will help you organise your friends across platforms using Cross Platform Parties! Players can add friends by selecting "follow" when looking at another player's profile.
  • Recent: This shows players you've met as a team in recent matches.
  • Team: Shows your current teammates

It doesn't stop at official matches as players from either console can join the other's custom maps, so you can play custom matches with your friends as well.

The update is live on the PUBG Console Public Test Server and will go live Feb. 27.
