Deathloop is a pioneering FPS game that almost seamlessly blends single-player and multiplayer, but does the game also have cross-play to allow players from PS5 and PC play with each other?

Sadly not. Deathloop does not have cross-play, meaning that players must play with friends on the same platform. Only PC players can play with PC players, and only PS5 players can play with PS5 players.

This is a shame, especially for those who have become so used to seeing cross-play in most big budget games with multiplayer aspects. Some players worry that not having cross-play available shortens the lifespan of games with multiplayer as the player pool will be more limited.

However, it’s worth bearing in mind that just because Deathloop doesn’t have cross-play at launch, it doesn’t mean it never will. World War Z, for instance, didn’t have any cross-play at launch, then introduced different cross-play bit-by-bit until it had full parity across platforms.

With Deathloop almost certainly coming to Xbox a year after it launches on PlayStation, don’t be surprised to see the game getting cross-play by that point. However, considering how easy it is to go online and play with others, as well as the fact that plenty of Colt players will likely leave online matchmaking on by default, players shouldn’t have any issues from hunting each other for a long time yet.

Deathloop is available on PC and PS5.
