Indie devs Psyonix, of Rocket League fame, have announced that cross-network multiplayer has arrived for its smash hit game. Rocket League has become the first ever Xbox One game to allow its players to connect and play with players using the Steam PC version of the game.
Anyone wanting to play against (or with) players on the other network can now do so. All they have to do is change a toggle in the options menu to include finding players on the other network. Or turn it off, if they so desire. This option works for both public and private matches.
Vice-president of Psyonix Jeremy Dunham is pretty happy with the development:
“We’re really excited to bring Xbox One and PC players closer together. Cross-network play has been something that Xbox One gamers have been asking us for since the day we launched, and thanks to Microsoft’s new cross-network policies, we’re proud to give it to them.”
Xbox One/Steam PC cross-play was turned on for Rocket League at 11PM BST yesterday.
