Psyonix have announced that a new update is now live for their smash hit title Rocket League, an update that adds full cross-platform play to matchmaking. Now PS4 players can finally matchmake with Xbox, PC and Nintendo Switch players from around the world.
Cross-platform play will be enabled by default for all players, and should help make finding games much easier across all game modes. Also, in a planned future update, Psyonix intend on adding cross-platform parties, so there’ll be no barrier to playing Rocket League with your friends. If you can’t wait until then, you’ll still be able to create custom games together.
Before today, Fortnite was the only game that supported full cross-platform play, so it’s nice to see that list has now doubled. With Rocket League joining the fold, it’ll be interesting to see which games follow suit. Personally, I’m hoping for some fighting games to help bolster their online communities.
