Sony has been holding out on crossplay between consoles for the entire generation, but it appears that the feature is finally coming to games designed for the console.
The company had been working on a beta test for the feature with certain games (ie. Fortnite) testing the service out. Crossplay will let a player on Xbox One or a Nintendo Switch or PC play with gamers on PS4, cutting out the necessity of making everyone have the same console to play on.
Players have been clamoring for crossplay for a long time, but it has been out of reach because the console manufacturers have been unable to come to an agreement on how it should work. In the previous generation, Sony was reportedly pushing for the feature, but Microsoft (dominant during the PS3 and Xbox 360 generation) turned them down. During this generation, Sony has been reluctant to add the feature, and they’ve largely been dominant, selling more than 100 million PS4 consoles.
Moving forward, players who want to crossplay will be able to on titles that have the feature implemented. Games like the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be included in the crossplay, and Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) already has the feature built-in.
If you’re looking to have the edge when you’re playing against your friends on other consoles, you can try to do so using one of our custom Evil Controllers. Our controllers allow you to custom map buttons, install shift paddles, adjust stick tension, and even add mods to your controller. This will work to give you an edge in games like Fortnite, Call of Duty, or any game that’ll be playable across multiple consoles.
