After opening its doors to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC players in the realm of Fortnite, Sony now allows the kick-off between PS4 owners and Rocket League players from other platforms to take place.
At first, cross-console plays were only limited to PS4 and PC players. Rocket League developers Psyonix were waiting for Sony’s approval but the idea was turned down due to a policy change last year. Following months of pressure for Sony, from both Fortnite and Rocket League fans, the Japanese video game giant eventually backed down to give its users a full cross-play experience.
Psyonix expressed their gratitude towards the fans’ support: “It’s because of you, our fans, and our generous partners on all systems and services that have made this possible in the first place,” says Jeremy Dunham, Vice President of publishing. “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.”
While matchmaking is set to default, players will soon be able to create custom matches just to team up with friends from other platforms in the upcoming patch.
