Sony has announced that it will finally let PS4 owners play Rocket League against gamers on Xbox, Switch, and PC. Having previously blocked Rocket League cross-play, except between PS4 and PC, developers said that they were simply waiting on Sony to give the go-ahead.
Eventually, Sony gave in to the demand, first on Fortnite and now Rocket League, thanks in part to a policy change last year.
Rocket League developer Psyonix is enabling cross-play by default, but just to make sure that it is, head to the “Main Menu,” select “Options” and then make sure the “Cross-Platform Play” box is checked in the “Gameplay” tab.
“Private Matches” can be created to play with friends until the cross-platform parties release by selecting “Play” from the “Main Menu,” then “Private Match,” followed by “Create” or “Join Private Match”.
“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,” says Jeremy Dunham, VP of publishing at Psyonix. “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.”
