PUBG Corp. have released a new patch for PUBG on consoles. The update 6.2 brings several additions including cross-party play, new game mode and changes to grenades.

PUBG Corp's battle royale PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has received a major patch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, adding the long-awaited cross-party play feature, team deathmatch game mode and some changes to the gameplay.

The biggest addition, cross-party play, will allow you to invite your buddies from different platforms into a single party to hunt for the chicken dinner together. Friends list received a makeover and now features four tabs where you can find platform-specific friends list.

Team Deathmatch mode, which recently arrived to PC has also been added to PS4 and Xbox One version of the game in update 6.2. It is a 8 v 8 first-person only mode with respawns, a classic mode that you have probably already played in other shooter titles.

All grenade types have received a lot of changes in 6.2. Vests will now mitigate damage received from frag grenades, which are now 50 per cent heavier and take more inventory space. Smoke and Stun grenades have also received changes to fuse timers while Molotov Cocktail fire spread speed has been increased by 50 per cent. You can check the full list of grenade changes here.

Last but not least, players now have an option to set waypoints on the map. You can check out the feature in the image below.
