PUBG: Season 4 drops August 27 and Cross Platform Play on Console Coming Soon!


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, we 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.

Today, we’re excited to tell you about our PUBG Season 4 update, coming to Xbox One on August 27. Season 4 may be our 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 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. Most importantly, it’s still Erangel, and fans who have loved the map all this time should still feel right at home.

Survivor Pass 4: 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. All details can be found by visiting pass.pubg.com.

Survivor Pass 4: Aftermath is available for 1,000 G-coin through in-game stores. Or you can get the special bundle, PUBG – Aftermath pack ($14,99) from the Microsoft Store.

Next, we are thrilled to announce that cross platform play is coming to PUBG on consoles! This has been, hands down, the most requested feature since we launched on consoles and we’re so happy to finally provide this for our console community on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Our first goal with cross platform play was for 100 players from both console communities to be able to play in the same match. Our second goal was to improve our matchmaking times, which we expect to be shorter for due to the wider matchmaking pool. Shorter wait times and more enemies on the battlegrounds = 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 counterpart. 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.

All of these exciting announcements could not have been possible without you, our wonderful community.

Thank you for your endless support, and we’ll see you on the battlegrounds!
