PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is een populair online battle-royalespel. Het is beschikbaar voor Windows via Steam, de Xbox One, Android, iOS en de PlayStation 4. Tweakers heeft alweer behoorlijk wat tijd geleden een preview van de Xbox One-uitgave online gezet, die nog steeds een goede indruk geeft van het spel. PUBG Corp, de ontwikkelaar van het spel, heeft nieuwe versies voor de PlayStation 4 en de Xbox One uitgebracht. De versieaanduiding is vastgezet op Console Update 4.3 en voorzien van de volgende aankondigingen:
Console Update 4.3
We’re kicking off Update 4.3 for consoles with a bang! Cross Platform Play is finally here, which will allow for our players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to be matched into the same matchmaking pool. We are thrilled to unify our two console platforms and are looking forward to your feedback on Cross Platform Play.
In addition, we’re introducing the DBS’ bullpup style double barrel shotgun action to the Battlegrounds, and launching the second phase of our mastery system called Survival Mastery. For a closer look at Survival Mastery, you can read the Dev Letter from our Mastery Team here.
As always, we are continuously striving to address bugs and make quality of life improvements. You can find a detailed list of the adjustments and improvements in the patch notes.
Survivor Pass 4: AFTERMATH runs until October 22nd PDT ending with the live server maintenance. Take these final weeks to finish any missions you have yet to complete. After the close of the Pass, there will be a Claimant Period for you to collect remaining rewards. You can still unlock premium rewards you’ve earned so far by purchasing Survivor Pass 4: AFTERMATH.
Thanks and we’ll see you on the Battlegrounds!

- SP gains have been increased significantly in Erangel, Miramar and Vikendi to make SP earned more fair across all maps with a similar time played.
