'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' has added a team deathmatch and better cross-play to the game.



The title's new PC patch - version 6.2 - will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One soon, and is already there for users on the Public Test Server.

The biggest part of the update will finally allow gamers to form cross-platform parties, which means players on PS4 and Xbox One can buddy up before the beginning of a match.

Although cross-play itself has been available for a while now, the party update is a new feature which will make it easier for friends to team up with pals on other systems.

In the past, a 'PUBG' match could include players from either console, but players could only form parties with gamers on the same console.

In a post, the 'PUBG' team added: "The long-requested Team Deathmatch mode has now arrived! Intense 8v8 FPP fights on 7 different battlefields pulled from your favourite maps.

"TDM features classic PUBG gunplay and mechanics with all the fun and action of respawning back into the fight.

"The boost gauge functions differently in TDM and fills by scoring kills and assists, restoring your health after you haven't received damage for 5 seconds.

"The team with the most kills in 10 minutes, or the first to reach 50 kills wins the round, with 2 round wins securing the match victory."
