'Rocket League' supports cross-play on every console, even PS4

Rocket League is the latest game to be added into the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program, an addition that comes after years of Sony's reluctance to offer the feature to multiplayer games. Originally due out last summer, Psyonix says its cross-platform party system will be out with the game's first update of 2019, the release date of which is now unknown. The system will let you "partner up with friends on any platform with the push of a few buttons".

Psyonix and Sony announced the new cross-play initiative on Monday with a post explaining how players can get into some matches with their friends on other platforms. At the time, it was mentioned how it would take a while to unify the community. When on, it will allow PS4 users to be randomly matched up with or against players on other platforms in Casual, Competitive, and Extra Modes. More information on that will be shared soon.

Are you excited to see cross-play expanded with Rocket League?

But with two of the biggest online games around now supporting the feature it seems inevitable that it'll become more and more commonplace over time. Just to be sure that you have Cross-Platform play enabled - make sure you head to the Main Menu, pick Options, then check the "Cross-Platform Play" box in the Gameplay tab. "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".
