PUBG Season 4 update and CrossPlay on Console is finally dropping on August 27. It’s been a little under a year since PUBG’s Xbox 1.0 launch, and while time has flown by, our team has been hard at work behind the scenes. Since the 1.0 launch, they have added a ton of exciting content to the game, including a winter-themed map, a weapon progression system, and a ledge grab mechanic, among other things.
Watch the trailer here:
PUBG Season 4 update, coming to Xbox One on August 27. Season 4 may be the biggest update yet, with the arrival of the highly anticipated Erangel Visual Update and Survivor Pass 4: Aftermath. This overhaul of our original map, Erangel, not only includes stunning visual enhancements, but also a weapon and vehicle rebalancing across the board. Plus, we’ve added some hidden secrets that give hints into the history of Erangel, so be sure to explore your favorite hot drop locations to look for these clues.
Survivor Pass 4: Aftermath
“Aftermath” will allow players to unlock over 100 Erangel-themed rewards as you level up. We’ve also added cooperative missions, which allow the community to work together towards goals and milestones. As you achieve these milestones together, new rewards are unlocked.
Next, the announce to cross-platform play is coming to PUBG on consoles! This has been, hands down, the most requested feature since its launch on consoles and finally provide this for the console community on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The first goal with the PUBG crossplay was for 100 players from both console communities to be able to play in the same match. The second goal was to improve the matchmaking times, which it’s expected to be shorter due to the wider matchmaking pool. Shorter wait times and more enemies on the battlegrounds equals 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.
In addition, to cross-platform play, PUBG Corporation is taking another step towards creating a unified experience with faster console updates. Console players will be able to dive into content sooner than ever before as updates will launch within two weeks of their PC counterparts. Starting Aug. 27, PUBG Season 4 will release on console, and all-in game content will be aligned across all platforms. All subsequent console updates will then land two weeks after its release on PC.
