Rocket League’s Tournaments hit beta soon, cross-platform parties due later this year

The makers of Rocket League have laid out their update plans for the next few months and beyond, with the first big addition being a beta test of the new tournaments feature starting some time this month.

Platform Wars: War Thunder Connecting PC And PS4

Nyoooooooooom.

Which is better, PC or PlayStation 4? There’s only one way to settle this: realising that it’s a daft question and a petty argument entirely unworthy of your precious time. Why war over platforms when you can war across platforms? War Thunder is bringing PC and PlayStation 4 together for a spot of friendly murdering, introducing cross-platform multiplayer “very, very soon.” Why bicker when you can be united in a shared love of destroying vintage tanks and aeroplanes?
