Rocket League developer Psyonix and Sony announced today that PlayStation 4 players of the game can now play alongside PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions online.
Rocket League has entered the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program, announced in a jointstatement between the two companies, which allows PS4 players to randomly matchmake in online matches with or against players of other platforms. It is the same program that Epic Games’s Fortnite entered last September.
Before today, PS4 could only matchmake with other PC players, while Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC had their own community. The Cross-Platform Play setting is already toggled on by default, and can be found in the Options menu under the Gameplay tab to turn off if necessary.
While players will be able to play with or against all platforms, they will not be able to party up in the same lobby just yet. Psyonix said that the cross-platform party feature will be coming in the first update of the new year, and promises more information “coming soon.”
The feature was first announced as part of the game’s summer 2018 roadmap and expected in July or August, but was delayed in October until early 2019. Rocket League players can still host private matches with friends on other platforms until then, though.
