Rocket League Now Xbox One’s First Cross-Platform Game
Are you ready for some cross-platform play on your Xbox One? Good, so are the game developers Psyonix as they announce today that…
Rocket League is now cross-platform compatible on Xbox One and PC
You read it right. Cross-platform gaming is now finally a thing on the Xbox. From today, Rocket Leaguers on both Xbox One and PC will be able to play against each other online.
The option to game with others outside of the Xbox eco-sphere extends to both public and private matches, allowing gamers to match with other players on both platforms. Of course, if you want to stay platform-native, you can always turn off (Not that you would, but it’s nice to have the option).
We’ve been waiting for this one for a while, after we revealed that both the studio and Microsoft were geared up to launch cross-platform gameplay. We’re hoping that this is just the origin story for cross-platform play, given that Microsoft have made flirtatious signals towards Sony about the possibly of taking it further. Rocket League itself has long-supported cross-play between Playstation and PC, and we’re keen to see where the technology can take us next – and what consoles will join the cross-play team.
You’ll be able to play Rocket League against PC players tonight when the feature unlocks at 11pm (3pm PT/ 6pm ET/ 10pm UTC).
