Well, here we go, people! It seems we’re slowly merging the player bases of all gaming platforms for some titles, and Rocket League is one of the first ones to finally implement it for Sony’s platform!
Announced over on the PlayStation Blog, Psyonix VP of Publishing Jeremy Dunham announced that full Rocket League cross platform play is now live! While it’s dubbed the “Cross-Play Beta Program,” (which Fortnite is a part of) the main feature, which is allowing PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC players to matchmake against one another is in effect in all online matches!
To make sure that Cross-Platform play is enabled (it is by default), 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. You are now ready to play against gamers on other platforms across the world!
If you’re curious if this also means cross-party, that’s not available yet, but Psyonix has mentioned that in the game’s first update this year (more info on that coming soon), the studio will release a cross-platform party system feature! Yes, this means you can squad up with friends on other platforms just by a few button pushes!
Let’s hope this is the start of cross-platform play for AAA titles going forward soon as well since the one that benefits the most from this feature are us, the gamers.
