Sony is finally making it easier for developers to implement cross-platform multiplayer
There’s been a lot of discussion over the past year or so about cross-platform gaming. Titles like Fortnite and Rocket League helped blaze the trail, but Sony continued to push back against the tide of gamers and developers that wanted to see more options for gaming with friends.
Now, Sony has announced (via a story on Wired) that its cross-play efforts on PlayStation 4 are moving out of beta (I honestly didn’t realize it was in beta), and will allow cross-play on any game that includes the functionality from developers.
This is honestly great to see, as gaming is continuing to evolve past console loyalty. Our friends are on a variety of platforms, we should be able to play with them whenever it is possible.
- First Impressions: The Surge 2 is a futuristic, brutal Souls-like game and I love it
- A future Rocket League update will remove its loot crate system – here’s what to know
- The Atari VCS retro console will double as a retro streaming box
- The new Nintendo Switch Lite also suffers from Joy-Con drift so that’s cool
