Rocket League is now fully cross platform compatible. This update has been pushed live, so you can go play a game of vehicle soccer with friends on any console. This information comes from a post on the Rocket League website. Rocket League is now cross-platform enabled, meaning PS4 and Xbox One gamers can finally compete against each other Psyonix. Unfortunately, the cross platform program with Sony is still in its beta stage, which means players may experience some minor tech issues. Once in Options, head to Cross Platform Play and make sure there is a check mark in the box next to Gameplay.
Rocket League cross-platform party update to release in February
Rocket League gets cross-platform parties on February 19 - Neowin
Psyonix became only the second studio to implement full cross-platform play onto a game back in January , offering Rocket League players on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch the opportunity to matchmake with each other without any restrictions. And today, the company announced that the much-awaited cross-platform party system is incoming later this month. Dubbed the Friends Update, Psyonix is implementing a new friends list that will let players from any platform party up together before matchmaking. Every player will now be assigned a unique and customizable RocketID which they can use to find and add friends from other platforms. In addition to a handy notification area, this new friends list will also have a recently met players tab for easily finding old teammates. The update will also give players the freedom to jump into Dropshot, Hoops, Snow Day, and Rumble special modes in Free Play, giving them an easier way to practice. How many Weekly Wins are left for players will also be made more visible following the update, which will show up on the XP screen after each round.
Cross-Platform Support Now Available for PS4 in Rocket League
In an update this week Psyonix has officially announced a highly requested feature for multiplayer sports-car game Rocket League: Cross-platform support for PlayStation players. Sony was notoriously the last holdout, refusing to support cross-platform play even while other companies, like Microsoft and Nintendo, played nice.
After more than a year of pressure, Sony has finally caved and is allowing full cross-platform play for Rocket League. The policy change came after continued nagging from RL fans and follows a similar allowance for cross-play support in Fortnite last September. Previously the console maker only allowed cross-play between the PlayStation 4 and PC, even though developer Psyonix claimed clear back in that it could have cross-platform support enabled on the PS4 in under an hour if Sony would allow it. As of today, Psyonix has enabled cross-play on the PS4 by default with only a few limitations.
