Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds studio wants to add cross-play between PC and Xbox One
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is kind of a big thing around these parts, and it will likely become an even bigger thing when it comes to the Xbox One later this year. And at some point after that, executive producer Chang Han Kim told VG247, developer Bluehole hopes to let people on both platforms play together. But first, there are a few wrinkles to iron out.
“Cross network play between the PC and the console is definitely something we want to do down the road, and we don’t anticipate we’ll have any technical issues with that,” Kim said.
“But… when you consider the competitive side of the game, I do feel that there’s a balance issue between controllers and keyboard and mouse. That’s what’s making it difficult for us to do right away. If we’re going to allow players to use controllers we need to have the aim assist added in and things like that. We’re not going to be supporting it right away, but it’s something we’d like to look into later.”

The more the merrier, but I’m not sure what adding cross-platform play to PUBG would accomplish aside from creating headaches for its developers. Even with aim assist, controllers are at a distinct disadvantage when put up against mouse and keyboard, so the odds of an Xbox One player ever winning a round are really not good—and on the off-chance that it does happen, all credit (or blame, more likely) would go to the aim assist, which is clearly—so the angry forum post would no doubt go—out of whack and overpowered. No matter which way it goes, somebody ends up mad.

That said, it’s not entirely unprecedented. The Coalition first tested, and then permanently added, cross-play to Gears of War 4 earlier this year. The online intermingling is limited to “Social Quickplay,” while Core and Competitive play remain segregated to keep them “as closely matched and competitive as possible.” But it’s not unreasonable to think that PUBG could take the same approach as it is with its new Zombies mode to accomplish basically the same thing: Give players the option to select either cross-play or single-platform action, and then let them eat the consequences.

I’ve reached out to PUBG for more information about its cross-play plans, and will update if and when I receive a reply.

  1. Jeez man, you just gave an opinion about two weapons you haven't fired yet, then misinformed everyone about the placement of the red dot site. I understand you wanting to get a vid out fast, but you should at least test the items before making this. You could have played the test server a day sooner and made a real evaluation, if you wanna build this channel don't be so lazy.

    And btw those new pistols are diesel, it's like having a vector as a 3rd gun. with extended mag you have a 25 rd automatic clip.

  2. I have a list of things they need to do.
    1. is yes you are correct why pistols still wont be utilized because players still have access to having 2 types of primaries. I think they are lazy also for adding in a Automatic Pistol rather than finding ways to help utilize pistols.
    – They can 1 reduce the amount of Extended Mags as this give players more ammo in their clip which would mean they wont likely empty their 40 bullets without the kill they intended on.
    – They Reduce Primaries to 1 slot and Add in a Sling that is Lootable(rare? like air drops? or found in all houses?) and you can equip it like a Vest but it Opens up the 2nd Primary Slot and gives you more space to your inventory. Making players have 1 Primary at the start will only make players think Okay I want a Sniper at the start I will have to have a side arm with me till I find a Sling, Most players dont even pick up pistols because of useless they are.

    This 2nd point is, Staggering Damage – already people are complaining that shooting zombies doesnt slow them down, Well shooting players never slowed them down either? so whats the complaint, The complaint goes down to Meele Weapons, Pistols and every single gun that doesnt stagger anything when shooting them. This is why most times the player weighs in Damage Per Second vs Taking their time on skill shots at close to medium range. You dont have that counter strike Thwack head jerk when you shoot their helmet you do not see any staggering effects when shooting someone with a shotgun at point blank to medium range, They Basically upped the damage and range on the shotgun to make up for those effects that most people would expect the stopping force to be there when shooting multiple pellets at someone or even shooting someone in the chest with a pistol as they are trying to run at you.

    So Skill shots are going to be out the door, and more spray and pray Automatic guns are being emphasized.

  3. I have a gtx 1060 6gb and I5-6500. this update is so good. like the last 4 months it had a lot of dips but now it's not even noticeable. this update is great. but I hope they optimized it for lower spec computers

  4. Why are youtubers always adding in Dayz like it's an actual game and has some kind of player base. That game was killed the day dean took the money and left
