Rocket League for PS4 joins Cross-Play Beta program

Rocket League for PS4 joins Cross-Play Beta program

Last October, the CEO of Psyonix released a public statement via Reddit about the current state of cross-platform play in Rocket League. To make sure that Cross-Platform Play is enabled, head to the Main Menu, select Options and then make sure the Cross-Platform Play box is checked in the Gameplay tab. It's as easy as that. More information on that is said to come soon, but when it's enabled, it'll allow players to party up across platforms instead of just randomly encountering players from other systems online.

Psyonix announced today that Rocket League has entered the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program and is playable with people across PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and Steam, making it only the second game to do so after Fortnite.

For now, players can create custom matches and face each other in teams or a free-for-all across all platforms. It probably won't significantly affect the primary modes, which are populated with thousands and thousands of players, but it does lift platform restrictions on tournaments.

Additionally, Psyonix will be releasing a cross-platform party system, allowing you to pair up with friends on any platform.

The change in Sony's heart comes only a few months after the company's decision to allow cross-play for Fortnite on the PS4 due to the game's enormous popularity.

Rocket League is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
