“PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” (PUBG) now allows PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players to go up against each other in the same matches.

The game’s newest update implemented cross-console play, which can be turned on and off in a gameplay settings submenu.

“PUBG” players cannot form teams that straddle the two console platforms, but a cross-party feature is in development.

The feature does not extend to encompass “PUBG” on computers or mobile devices, both of which allow for different control methods, and affecting player responsiveness as a result.

“PUBG” is one of the most high-profile names to join a cross-platform multiplayer trend that began with “Fortnite” and “Rocket League” as its spearheads.

The trend now encompasses several other titles by way of “Dauntless”, “Spacelords”, “Super Mega Baseball 2” and a quintet from Hi-Rez Studios: “Paladins”, “Smite”, “Realm Royale” (projected for early October) and “Rogue Company” (launching 2020).

Debuting on Oct. 25, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” is to implement full cross-platform multiplayer between its PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows communities. RGA/JB
