The 30 Best Cross-Platform Games (4)

Multiplayer is an ever-growing part of video games. Players can reach out to compete or cooperate with other gamers across the world, all without leaving their seats. Crossplay is becoming more and more of a buzzword in multiplayer games. Allowing PlayStation 5 and Xbox to play, not just with each other but with PC players as well, only expands a game's player base and widens the playing field.

However, not every game has crossplay. Legal issues, balance concerns, or sheer brand loyalty can keep a game's multiplayer tied to a single platform, even if that game itself isn't exclusive. Fortunately, plenty of the most popular games right now have launched with crossplay or added it later, only broadening the thrilling multiplayer cross-platform gaming experience. No matter the preferred method to play, there are so many Playstation, Xbox, Switch, Mobile, and PC cross-platform games to choose from.

Updated on June 6, 2024, by Michael Colwander: Crossplay is becoming the standard for all online multiplayer games, which means there are plenty of crossplay games on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Switch, and Mobile devices. Don't have to go far to find the best cross-platform games!

30 Tekken 8 Avoids Its Even-Numbered Curse In One Of Its Best Entries Yet

Crossplay On: PlayStation, Xbox, and PC

Online Multiplayer:

2-16 Players

Tekken has long been the subject of the "even-number curse." For every great Tekken game like Tekken 3 and Tekken 5, a disappointing game followed in Tekken 4 or Tekken 6. This even extended to Tekken Tag Tournament where Tekken Tag Tournament 2 was such a financial disappointment that almost derailed the entire franchise. Tekken fans were reasonably concerned that Tekken 8 would kill any positive momentum gained by the amazing Tekken 7.

Thankfully, that wasn't the case as Tekken 8 has received critical acclaim since its January release, garnering the highest Metacritic score in the franchise since Tekken 3. While not perfect, Tekken 8 also has rollback netcode – a first for the series. Add in crossplay and it's easy to see why Tekken 8 is already one of the best Tekken games ever.

15 Best NBA 2K Games, Ranked According To Metacritic

While microtransactions have marred recent NBA 2K releases, the yearly sports franchise has a deep history of fantastic basketball games.

NBA 2K series was one of the most popular franchises to yet receive crossplay functionality. That is until NBA 2K24 where crossplay wasn't just implemented for standard matches, but accessible for just about any mode. The catch is that crossplay in NBA 2K24 is limited to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. No crossplay for Switch, PC, or past-gen versions of NBA 2K24, but it's a start.

NBA 2K24 features some of the best overall visuals and gameplay from any sports franchise, although it may grow stale for anyone who plays NBA 2K games year in and year out. On top of that, predatory microtransactions can take away from the experience. For first-time players, NBA 2K24 is a great place to start especially as the 2024 NBA FInals is about to begin.

Microtransactions have no place in a full-priced console game, but they do make sense to some degree in a free-to-play gacha game like Genshin Impact. Genshin Impact is an action role-playing game with heavy online and gacha elements. Its art style, gameplay, and open world will quickly remind new players of recent The Legend of Zelda games like Tears of the Kingdom.

Genshin Impact's community is robust and passionate, so it isn't tough to get help and find people to play with. With others or alone, there is plenty to do in Genshin Impact and its crossplay functionality ensures its world is always populated.

Roblox adheres to anyone's greatest creative impulses. Like LittleBigPlanet and Dreams, Roblox is designed for players to play, create, and share their own games. Its simplistic creation system makes it easy for players of all ages to make whatever comes to mind. Worth noting that in-game purchases should be monitored for any young player.

Even though Roblox was first released in 2006, it gained immense popularity in the 2010s. In October 2023, Roblox finally made its way to PlayStation systems where crossplay awaits new players. Thanks to crossplay, players have access to an unfathomable amount of content with new and exciting games playable daily.

Roblox.

Roblox is a global platform where millions of people gather together every day toimagine, create, and share experiences with each other in immersive, user-generated 3D worlds. The types of gameplay on Roblox are just as limitless as the imagination of the creators themselves.

It's easy to forget Payday 3 is even out. It quickly became the subject of backlash for its messy launch, which disappointed fans of the beloved co-op bank-robbing franchise. Many have since moved on.

Since then, Starbreeze has steadily worked to mitigate the long list of issues with its most recent update winning many detractors over, especially with the new progression system. Payday 3 may not yet hit the same highs as its predecessor, but it's right on track to doing so if not surpassing it sooner rather than later. Now is a great time to get started on Payday 3.

No Man's Sky has gone from one of gaming's most infamous misfires to a surprising success story. Developers Hello Games have worked on the game since its release to add many of the originally promised features and much more. One of No Man's Sky's biggest changes is the addition of multiplayer.

No Man's Sky works perfectly fine as a single-player game. However, its multiplayer has been greatly expanded following a lackluster beginning. Now, players can explore the galaxy together in large groups. No Man's Sky players can join others' games regardless of platform, although console players have to play in smaller groups than PC players.

Outriders is an online-only co-op game, which makes it the perfect candidate for crossplay. This helps ensure there will always be a co-op partner to team up with as they try to settle a new worldly colony.

While Outriders' story isn't the best, it's gameplay and co-op is a blast. Outriders also has an expansion in Worldslayers for added content. As a bonus, Outriders isn't littered with microtransactions like most other multiplayer games. For PlayStation Plus Premium players, Outriders is available on that service, which makes now a great time to play!

The EA Sports FC, formally FIFA, series has been the premier football (soccer) simulator since the mid-1990s, with a brief hiatus during Pro Evolution's peak in the early to mid-2000s. The latest game in the series may be yet another version of the game that features predatory tactics in its Ultimate Team mode but It's still the most advanced game of its kind by a long way.

Players are able to team up with and go against, friends on the last two generations of Xbox and PlayStation (though play between generations isn't possible) as well as PC, and the player pool is so enormous that finding a game is remarkably easy at any time of day. Sticking to traditional modes like Seasons is more than enough to help the traditional EA Sports FC/FIFA experience reemerge from the shadows.

In a world where Halo Infinite is a thing it might seem odd to return to the original games but The Master Chief Collection gives players every reason to. Taking out the nostalgia factor of the equation for a moment, the MCC has a solid single-player experience but truly shines in the game’s various multiplayer modes. The updated visuals and under-the-hood tweaks make for a game that truly feels at home in the 2020s.

The collection features Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and the hugely underrated Halo: Reach, a free cross-platform game for Game Pass subscribers. As with many titles that feature on the service, crossplay between PC and Xbox is possible and has helped to maintain the player base up to the time of writing.

The Halo series has struggled to recapture the magic that the first three games managed to create but Halo Infinite is probably the closest they've got, and the multiplayer is its best feature. The combat has somehow been overhauled and yet kept immediately recognizable, culminating in the most solid mechanics of the entire series.

Players are able to play between Xbox generations and with PC players though this setting can be disabled for those who feel mouse and keyboard can provide an unfair advantage. Available on Game Pass for existing subscribers, there are a few reasons not to pick this up for a quick bout of chaotic gunplay with friends and foes.

Rocket League: 10 Tips For New Players

From control settings and camera views to Boost, Braking, and Flipping, discover the most helpful tips for Rocket League beginners.

It might seem obvious now that combining very fast cars, explosions, and sports could lead to a game that is loved the world over, but Rocket League did come out of nowhere. Though it was released in 2015, the game continues to receive regular updates and the player base remains at a high level, regularly appearing in the top echelons of the concurrent player charts.

The competitive scene for the game is also significant and more casual players can enjoy a slice of that in the game's various multiplayer modes. Though crossplay can be disabled, matchmaking is entirely open with no priority for those on the same platform, so it's just as likely to be a mixed lobby as one localized to the same console.

Hands down, Rocket League is one of the greatest concepts in the history of video games. There’s no way to explain what type of game it is because there’s truly never been anything like it. When Rocket League was first released in 2015, the gaming world paused, and collectively speculated what it would be like. It’s a sports game, but with cars, but it isn't a racing game? Not something easy to wrap your head around. If you haven’t played it before, just believe us when we tell you, the chance of you loving this game is very high. Rocket League is known in the community as one of the most addicting games you can play.

19 Chivalry 2 Sees PlayStation And Xbox Players Clash Swords

Online Multiplayer:

2-64 Players

Developer Torn Banner Studios had a significant job on their hands when working on the sequel for the wildly enjoyable (and successful) Chivalry. Thankfully, they did an incredible job improving on the solid foundations they'd created. The medieval hack-n-slash doesn't have a campaign, instead choosing to place players in huge pitched battles that aim to provide a deeply realistic rendition of combat in the era.

Visually, it's a stunning and gritty experience that delivers mud and blood in equal measure. Players are able to take on a number of different classes/roles, from mounted knights to the humble and occasionally hilarious lute player, whose sole purpose seems to be only to bring joy to the battlefield. Though it may not be for everyone, Chivalry 2 is a barrel of fun for those willing to give it a chance and crossplay allows PlayStation, Xbox, and PC users to play together.

As a game, Street Fighter 6 might seem to be the more sanitized cousin of the Mortal Kombat series but as the true OG of the fighting genre, it does remain at the top of the tree. With over seven years between this and the last game, fans had a long time to wait but when it did eventually arrive in the middle of 2023, there was almost nothing to be disappointed with aside from some inevitable balancing issues.

Though it does have an impressive single-player campaign, the focus on multiplayer is clear with crossplay available between consoles and PC and support for up to 16 players. It's nothing new as Capcom has utilized crossplay since the PS3 and Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken in 2012. SF6 is full of casual options are there for those who just want to have fun and competitive paths are hugely populated and rewarding for those willing to put the time in. If 2023 was the year of the fighting game, SF6 led the charge, and with new characters coming fast and furious there is sure to be a character for everyone.

It's surprising to think there's a cornerstone Nintendo franchise that has crossplay capabilities, given how tightly the company holds onto its exclusives. Pokémon Unite changed that in 2021, becoming the first Pokémon game with crossplay functionality after decades of games with multiplayer capabilities.

Pokémon Unite is a free-to-play MOBA where two teams of three to five players compete for the highest score after ten minutes of play. Pokémon Unite is continually growing and its accessibility being on both the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices has allowed it to grow into a popular eSports competition.

The enormous debate around whether a direct sequel to the original Overwatch was a good idea was temporarily quelled by the prospect of an expansive single-player. In a perhaps unsurprising twist of fate, that was very recently canceled, leaving just the multiplayer mode behind and a game that remains a remarkably similar version of the first.

That said, the original Overwatch was a brilliant online party shooter for those who didn't want to take it seriously and a hyper-competitive, e-sports titan for those who operated at the other end of the scale. With full crossplay support, the game has a very healthy player base and there are far worse places to spend a few hours with friends or other players online.

Overwatch 2

The Overwatch franchise continues with Overwatch 2, the sequel to Blizzard's team-based PVP online shooter. Marking a significant departure from the original, Overwatch 2 reduced its team size from 6v6 to 5v5. In addition, it switched from a full-priced entry into a free-to-play model available on all modern consoles. The sequel also has changed how players earn cosmetics and other items, as Blizzard has opted for a season pass system prevalent in the genre instead of the loot box system in the original title. Additionally, players will be able to engage in more cooperative play in PVP and in a new PvE mode where players group together in teams of four against computer-controlled opponents. Overwatch 2 will allow players to play one of thirty heroes at launch and one of three classes when it launches on October 4 2022.

REVIEW: The Incredibly Impressive Mortal Kombat 1 is a Grisly Great Time

With a deep wealth of single-player options and an impressive combat system, Mortal Kombat 1 is a must-buy for fighting game fans.

It might seem logical to think that at some point Mortal Kombat's mixture of ultraviolence and bonkers story might become tiresome but that day is yet to arrive. Mortal Kombat 1 is a noticeable improvement over the last few, offering greatly updated visuals and gameplay that rewards players who learn their character combos and time them properly. Its Kameo system gives players greater individuality from Mortal Kombat 11.

The developers had a real eye on Krossplay (as they hilariously referred to it) and as a result, players can join those on other consoles for some melee brutality. Equally, Xbox or PlayStation pals can join one another via the lobby system to truly test the bounds of their friendships in the most violent and well-polished game of its kind. However, the much-maligned Switch version lacks crossplay functionality. Maybe it's for the best.

Helldivers 2 is the biggest multiplayer release of 2024 so far. This third-person shooter takes players into the deep recesses of space as they try to protect numerous planets from large insects and robotic foes.

The galactic war of Helldivers 2 is organic, being tides can shift at any time, meaning players will have to unite and defend and liberate planets that need it most. While Helldivers 2 is crossplay, it's recently run into controversy with the game's new PlayStation account requirement, even for those on PC. This led to PC players requesting refunds and review-bombing the game. Thankfully, Sony has since walked back on those plans, which means this fantastic cross-platform game will still have plenty of PC players!

Helldivers II

“HELLDIVERS™ 2 is a 3rd person squad-based shooter that sees the elite forces of the Helldivers battling to win an intergalactic struggle to rid the galaxy of the rising alien threats. From a 3rd person perspective, players use a variety of weapons (pistols, machine guns, flamethrowers) and stratagems (turrets, airstrikes, etc.) to shoot and kill the alien threats. Players can also aim down the sights for a more accurate 1st person camera view. Combat is accompanied by frequent sprays of blood and dismemberment as players exterminate the alien forces or players and squad mates are hit by environmental explosions or friendly fire. Enemy encampments and battlefield environments depict bloodstains and dismembered corpses.”

Few games arrive on the scene in quite the same way that Fall Guys did at the height of the pandemic in August 2020. Perhaps due, in part, to the enforced isolation that many people were placed into, the game's blend of childlike, cartoony art direction and simple gameplay mechanics proved to be the perfect tonic.

Players are tasked with progressing their adorable little bean avatar through a series of obstacle courses and mini-games to finish in the top half or on the victorious team. Each round will feature fewer and fewer players until a final challenge crowns a solo victor. It's the ultimate party game and supports crossplay between all major consoles and PC.

Barely scraping onto this list thanks to its support for players who want to team up with friends on the older generation of the same console line, Elden Ring is every bit the game that its reception suggested. Perhaps slightly unusual in the way it approaches multiplayer, the system feels more at home here than it did in other FromSoftware games like Dark Souls.

Players can leave messages behind for others to discover, and it's frankly a godsend to be able to summon another body to help with some of the game's more notoriously difficult boss fights. Sure, it's not a traditional multiplayer experience, but it is a spectacular RPG that is all the better when occasionally enjoyed with others especially once its expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, releases in June.

Blizzard has had a very up-and-down few years and the arrival of Diablo IV was, for some, supposed to mark the start of a new and more positive era for the company. Anticipation for the game was off the charts and what fans got was a very good ARPG that perhaps hasn't reached the heights that it should — yet.

The third game in the series also suffered from intense issues on release that were gradually ironed out and patched into oblivion. What players were left with was a post-Reaper of Souls world in which they finally got the Diablo game they deserved. With a very healthy player base and extensive crossplay opportunities, there is every chance that could happen again.
