PUBG Corp have released Update 4.3 for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on consoles. The patch brings long-awaited support for cross-platform play on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Today, PUBG Corp. have dropped the Update 4.3 for their battle royale PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. The update is now live on console servers and it brings the long-awaited feature that will allow PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players to join in the same matchmaking pool and face off on the Battlegrounds for the first time since the battle royale title launched.
Players can turn the option off if they prefer to play only with and against players from their own platform. The devs also added a console icon right before the players' name so you can identify the platform of other users. These icons will also be available on leaderboards.
Along with the cross-platform support for consoles, Update 4.3 also brings a lot of other neat additions, which were introduced on PC a couple of days ago. There is a new method of tracking progression in the form of Survival Mastery. This new feature rewards players for their survival skills in each match.
Players also get a detailed review of each combat encounter so they can see how they and their squadmates performed during the match.
Furthermore, Survival Master also introduces the PUBG ID, a new way to show your survival accomplishments when interacting with other players. For example, you can customise your name plate, emblems and even your character's pose to make it completely unique.
As for the new guns, Update 4.3 brings a new crate weapon, the double-barrelled, pump-action, DBS shotgun which packs a devastating power. It holds 14 shells and can fire off two shots per second which makes it a perfect weapon in late-game close-quarters combat.
