that Rocket League
is now part of the PlayStation
Cross-Play Beta, so the motorized sports game now has complete cross-platform
support for all platforms, so Windows, Xbox One, Switch, and PlayStation 4
players can all participate in the same match. Word is: "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
the best experience we can." Here's how this works, including word
that cross-platform party support is coming in their next update:
special thanks to all of our friends and colleagues at PlayStation, we are
thrilled to announce that starting RIGHT NOW, Rocket League has entered the
PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program! Players on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch,
Xbox One, and Steam can now randomly matchmake with or against each other in all
Online match types (i.e. Casual, Competitive, and Extra Modes).
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!
But what about cross-platform parties? In our first update this year (more
information coming soon), we will release our cross-platform party
system, which allows you to partner up with friends on any platform with the
push of a few buttons.
Should you want to play with friends on other platforms before cross-platform
parties release, however, you can! Just select "Play" from the "Main
Menu," then "Private Match," followed by "Create" or "Join
Private Match," and you're set from there.
