In a post on the PlayStation Blog, the guys have been able to confirm the news we’ve all been waiting to hear for a while now; Rocket League full cross platform availability is now live and kicking across all platforms. There is currently a Rocket League full cross platform Beta scheme open to ensure testing goes as planned between the likes of Xbox one, Switch, PS4 and PC players.
What will the Rocket League full cross platform beta involve?
As most of us already know, the idea of a beta is to iron out any kinks in the process to ensure everything runs smoothly when it comes to releasing the fully fledged new cross-play feature. The beta will allow players from all platforms to play all types of matches which include Competitive, Casual and of course the Extra mode types. Players can matchmake against each other or team up with mates.
How to enable Cross-Platform Play
By default the Rocket League full cross platform play should be enabled automatically, if you find its not happening though here’s the steps. Head over to the options area of the main menu, then nav to Gameplay and ensure ‘Cross-Platform Play is ticked if it isn’t already. That’s literally all you’ll need to do to enable you to compete against (or play with) others from all over the globe from any platform.
If you fancy hosting a Rocket League full cross platform party with mates then this is going to be made possible as part of an upcoming update in 2019. The idea behind this is to make it a seamless process to arrange with friends who may be on a PC/Xbox/Switch while you’re on PS4 to join you in a competitive party.
The beauty of this is that you don’t have to wait for the update to party with your mates, you can already do so by heading over to the Main Menu and selecting the ‘Play’ tab, hit Private Match and then choose either Join or Create a match and you’ll be good to go.
Psyonix, the developers of Rocket League stated that ”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 League the best experience we can.”
So it sounds like they’re just as all the other rocket league players out there will be!
