PUBG has released Update 6.2 which finally allows players across two major gaming consoles to play in the same team.
Last year, the company had allowed players from either of the consoles to compete with each other but these players couldn’t play together as a team.
The cross-party play support will let PS4 and Xbox One players to team up in the game together. PC players still haven’t received the ability to cross-play.
Some of the updated features include:
The long-requested Team Deathmatch mode has now arrived! Intense 8v8 FPP fights on 7 different battlefields pulled from your favorite maps.
TDM features classic PUBG gunplay and mechanics with all the fun and action of respawning back into the fight. The boost gauge functions differently in TDM and fills by scoring kills and assists, restoring your health after you haven’t received damage for 5 seconds.
The team with the most kills in 10 minutes or the first to reach 50 kills wins the round, with 2 round wins securing the match victory.

The upgrade also introduces gameplay changes to grenades and Molotov cocktails. The fuse time on smoke grenades has been reduced from 3 seconds to 1 second. Frag grenades will also have a lesser impact if the player is wearing a vest.
