Psyonix have been working hard to bring us cross-network play and today they have announced that Rocket League players will soon be seeing the benefits.
Celebrating an historic moment in multiplayer gaming, the arrival of cross-network play between Xbox One and PC will ensure that the 2 million Xbox One players will now be taking to the field against a whole host of new opponents. With this new addition, if you so wish, you will now be able to easily include (or not include if you so desire) cross-network rivals in both public and private matches. You’l find a nice little toggle check box in the Options menu.
“We’re really excited to bring Xbox One and PC players closer together,” said Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Psyonix. “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 and Steam PC cross-network compatibility is scheduled to release worldwide starting 3pm PT/ 6pm ET/ 10pm UTC.
