Epic defend Fortnite’s new cross-platform matchmaking

Throwing Fortnite players from all platforms into the same matches was a bold move risking horrible imbalance, yet Epic are still confident their matchmaking will work it out. The idea that someone on PC with keyboard and mouse playing against a person tapping on a pocket telephone or twiddling a diddy Switch is a weird one to me. Epic trust that their matchmaking system will…

PS4 cross-platform multiplayer reportedly now available to all developers

I know statements like this are tantamount to heresy and that there can be no escape from Horace's ursidaen omniscience, but on this occasion I'm going to throw myself on His mercy. Consoles can be quite good. I like having a box by my telly that doesn't force me to solve an arcane tech problem every few months. More saliently, I know others who feel…

Fortnite is testing true cross-platform play as Sony finally ease up

Fortnite has already taken over the world, but after an announcement on Sony's PlayStation Blog today, I might be willing to give it some tentative credit in ending the console war, too. Or starting a new one. After months of Sony taking up Microsoft's old miserly crown and saying that cross-platform play between PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC players just wasn't on the cards,…

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. The 'bad' news is that we need to wait longer for cross-platform multiplayer parties, which will let us team up with consoleers, but that's like griping about waiting…

Gears of War launches cross-platform casual multiplayer

Cross-platform multiplayer has officially arrived in Gears of War 4 [official site], letting Xboners and Tenners square off against each other while also letting territorial babies reignite tedious arguments about who's REALLY the baby. Right now, only the Versus 'Social Quickplay' playlist puts Xbone and Windows 10 players together, and it sounds like it'll stay that way. Expanding the playerpool and letting folks play with…

Rocket League Gets Xbone Cross-Platform Play Today

Have you prepared your chants and jeers for Rocket League [official site] adding cross-platform multiplayer with Xbox One today? "You're going home in the back of a Warthog." Things like that. "Where's your Milo gone? (Where's your Milo gone?)" That stuff. "Two console wars and one E3, doo-dah doo-dah!" You get the idea. And after Edinburgh echoed with Sunshine on Leith all weekend, I realise…

It's been out on the black box since 2013, and this will support cross-platform multiplayer so folks on PC and Xbone can duff each other up.

Platform Wars: War Thunder Connecting PC And PS4

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…
