Rocket League Is Now Officially 100% Cross-Platform Play Compatible
Rocket League is now one big happy family because it is – as of today – 100% cross-platform play compatible, even with PlayStation 4.
Up until now, there has been cross-platform play between certain platforms, but Sony was holding back the ability for Xbox and PlayStation to play together. When the company announced late last year that they were loosening up that grip, players were excited to finally play without limits and now Rocket League is finally a part of that.
According to a recent post by Psyonix Vice President Jeremy Dunham, “With special thanks to all of our friends and colleagues at PlayStation, we are thrilled to announce that starting right now, Rocket League has entered the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program! Players on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam PC can now randomly matchmake with or against each other in all Online match types (i.e. Casual, Competitive, and Extra Modes).”
Players will need to make sure that Cross-Platform Play is checked in the main menu, but outside of that – it’s ready to go.
But what about cross-platform parties? Dunham added, “In our first update this year (more information coming soon), we will release our cross-platform party system, which allows you to partner up with friends on any platform with the push of a few buttons.”
Should you want to play with friends on other platforms before cross-platform parties release, however, you can! Just select Play from the Main Menu, then Private Match, followed by Create or Join Private Match, and you’re set from there.”
The community has been asking for cross-platform play without restrictions for quite some time now, so it’s definitely an awesome way to kick off 2019 for both the dev team and the community that enjoys the wildly popular vehicular soccer game.
