Crossplay has become more pervasive and PUBG is no different with PUBG crossplay for PS4 and Xbox One. While you won't be able to play across PC and console yet (presumably because of the inherent advantages of mouse and keyboard), you are able to party up with your friends regardless of platform differences. We've been able to enjoy PUBG crossplay for a while, but having the opportunity to squad up with our friends for a shared chicken dinner is a welcome addition - here's how.

With this latest update detailed in a blog post, there's a new PUBG friends list in action on consoles. Along with having your PSN or XBL friends added depending on what console you play on, you can also search for players on either system. 

In order to add them to your PUBG friends list, you need to select their name then opt for "follow" when looking at their profile. You can also see a list of all players you've recently played with, plus those in your current team.

It's no secret that PUBG is a much more popular game on PC than it is on consoles for a multitude of reasons. There's plenty of PC players who would love to be able to team up with their friends on consoles though, so will PUBG PC crossplay ever exist?

Unfortunately, the answer is likely to be no. PUBG PC and PUBG consoles run on entirely different servers, the versions of the game are different and receive updates at different times, and there's no hiding the fact that PC players would have a severe advantage thanks to the nature of the game. More so than most other shooters.

Don't take this as definitive confirmation because PUBG Corp may implement it later down the line, but at the time of writing, there's been no word on PC crossplay coming at all.

When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1 2020, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager 2020, clicking on heads in Valorant, or mowing down hordes of enemies in Outriders.
