Full cross-platform play is finally available in Rocket League
Wow! Wow! Wow! Chat disabled for 3 seconds.
I love Rocket League and now, I love Rocket League just a little bit more thanks to a new announcement from developer Psyonix.
Announced today, Rocket League finally has full crossplay functionality (with some caveats). This means that regardless of your platform, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, or PC, you can play against players from other platforms or in private matches with other people.
Sadly, at this time, there is still no cross-platform partying past playing in private matches, but according to the press release it is still on the way and scheduled for an early 2019 release.
How to set up cross-play in Rocket League
If you want the ability to fully enjoy cross-play, here’s how:
- On the main menu, head to Options
- Find the Gameplay tab
- Check off the Cross-Platform Play box
That’s it, that’s all that is required for the cross-play functionality. The press release does note this as a “PlayStation Cross-Play beta program,” so while there shouldn’t be any issues with the system, if it seems a bit buggy, that is probably why.
