PUBG console update 6.2 adds cross-party play for PS4 and Xbox One owners

By Sean Carey,
Update 6.2 has arrived for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on console. The update adds cross-party play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, a team-deathmatch mode and changes to throwables.

Cross-play was introduced into PUBG a number of months ago, but this latest update finally allows for PS4 players to party up with their friends on Xbox One. The friends list has undergone a makeover and allows players to search for their pals from either platform and add them using their Xbox Gamertag or PSN username.

Also included in this update is the new 8v8 Team Deathmatch mode. The game mode can only be played in first-person, and the team that either reaches 50 kills first or has the most kills after ten minutes wins. Knockdowns are disabled in Team Deathmatch, players can respawn, and health regenerates.

Changes have also been made to throwables. Frag Grenades have undergone a significant nerf to damage output, and the Molotov's fire spread rate has been increased by 50%. Stun Grenades have also had a buff with their effective range being increased by a meter.

Update 6.2 is available to download now.
