Rocket League now supports cross-play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4

Rocket League is a sports game where you control a vehicle and have to use it to play soccer. You jump, boost and hit your way to victory in intense single-player or multiplayer matches. The title requires a lot of skill and teamwork to succeed.

Today, developer Psyonix announced that Rocket League fully supports cross-play now, as Sony allowed it into the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program. Beforehand, you could only play between Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and other platforms except PlayStation 4. The team issued the following statement on its website.

With special thanks to all of our friends and colleagues at PlayStation, we are thrilled to announce that starting right now, Rocket League has entered the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program! Players on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam can now randomly matchmake with or against each other in all online match types. To make sure that Cross-Platform Play is enabled, head to the Main Menu, select Options and then make sure the Cross-Platform Play box is checked in the Gameplay tab. But what about cross-platform parties? In our first update this year, we will release our cross-platform party system, which allows you to partner up with friends on any platform with the push of a few buttons. Should you want to play with friends on other platforms before cross-platform parties release, however, you can! Just select Play from the Main Menu, then Private Match, followed by Create or Join Private Match, and you're set from there... we know how much our community has wanted full cross-platform support for quite some time. 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.

Will you be teaming up with your PlayStation 4 friends to play Rocket League? Let us know.

Recently, Rocket League joined Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Game Pass memberships costs $9.99 each month so be sure to check it out if you want a Netflix-style subscription for games. Unlike competing products, the titles download to your system so there's no streaming involved.
