Jeremy Dunham, the Vice President of Publishing for Psyonix, announced that Rocket League has entered into the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program. This means that players on any platform, have that be the Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC (Via Steam) can now enter the matchmaking fray, together.
“Today’s announcement is an important one for us here at Psyonix, because we know how much our community has wanted FULL cross-platform support for quite some time. It’s because of YOU, our fans, and our generous partners on all systems and services that have made this possible in the first place. On behalf of the entire team, THANK YOU for your passion and persistence as we continue to do our best to make Rocket League the best experience we can.”
Cross-platform parties are also planned to make an appearance in the first update of 2019, allowing players to partner up with friends on any platform with just the push of a few buttons. More details regarding this update will be talked about at a later date. For now, players can play with their friends on other platforms by entering private matches or randomly through matchmaking.
Ensuring that Cross-Platform play is enabled is easy. Enter the game’s main menu, then select “options.” There will be a “cross-platform play” box that should be checked under the Gameplay tab.
This is the second game to enter Sony’s Cross-Platform beta program, with the first one being Epic Games’ Fortnite. What other games do you expect to see roll out with Cross-Platform functionality? Let us know in the comments!
