Players start your engines players, because Sony has just announced that cross-platform play is now available for Rocket League.
For the longest time it seemed like Sony were never going to come to the table when it came to cross-platform play. The first game to break down Sony’s policy wall was Fortnite last year, after pressure from fans and developers. Rocket League developers Psyonix were none too silent on the desire they had for Sony to allow cross-platform play for their title as well.
Rocket League is already cross-platform ready by default, meaning that players can already play with other players across PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC as of today, so it’s exciting to see Rocket League finally joining Sony’s cross-platform ranks.
In a statement released today from Psyonix, the developers said:
“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 can now randomly matchmake with or against each other in all Online match types (i.e. Casual, Competitive, and Extra Modes)”
“But what about cross-platform parties? In our first update this year, 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.”
So how do you enable this awesome new feature? Although cross-platform play is enabled by default, should you find that there’s something amiss, simply head to the “Main Menu,” select “Options” and then make sure the “Cross-Platform Play” box is checked in the “Gameplay” tab. And that’s all there is to it.
So what are you waiting for? Start revving those engines and jump online today, while wondering what other titles could eventually become cross-platform on PS4 as well.
