While crossplay wasn't available in Borderlands 3 at launch, it will be in Tiny Tina's Wonderlands. Even better, crossplay in Tiny Tina's Wonderlands will be enabled across all platforms, allowing those on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC to play together. Enabling crossplay in Wonderlands is fairly simple because of an opt-in window that everyone will be greeted with, but actually trying to join up with your friends may be a bit more difficult if you don't know what to do.

We'll walk through how to enable crossplay and join friends so that you can get started on a new adventure together. Remember, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands features two multiplayer modes: Coopetition and Cooperation. The important things to note are that Coopetition has a shared loot pool between players, while Cooperation gives players each their own separate loot pool. Enemy levels are also scaled to each individual player in Cooperation, while Coopetition sees enemies scaled to the level of the host player.

An opt-in menu for crossplay will pop up when players open up the game for the first time. Because crossplay works using Gearbox SHiFT matchmaking, you'll need to enter a display name (this can be changed in the Social menu or on the SHiFT website).

  1. Press the Menu button on your controller.
  2. Scroll down and select Social.
  3. Select Find SHiFT Friends under Roster (only if you don't see your friend's name appear).

That's all there is to it. Once you've teamed up, you'll be treated to one of the best shooters on Xbox, complete with six unique character classes from which to choose. With the option to multiclass opening up later in the game, it makes for some interesting possibilities.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands supports local and online co-op, so no matter where you friends are or what platform they play on, you can always play together. Now go and defeat the Dragon Lord.

  • It's 2022, every multiplayer game should have crossplay and be the absolute default. This is ridiculous.
