Psyonix has a late Christmas gift for all you Rocket League players. They have made quite the announcement:
“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 (i.e. Casual, Competitive, and Extra Modes).”
All My Friends 🚐🚗🚛🚙

With the announcement, Rocket League has officially gone cross-platform meaning that players from various consoles and PCs can all play against each other, expanding the overall player base in which you can match up against. This comes at a great time in terms of announcement as Rocket League picks up momentum with the title being the headline for the World Showdown of Esports 4 and ELEAGUE going all in.
In order to use the cross-platform gaming toggle, make sure that cross-platform play is enabled, then head to the “Main Menu,” select “Options” and then make sure the “Cross-Platform Play“ box is checked in the “Gameplay“ tab. This new update will also allow players to team up with players from other platforms.
From the release:
“But what about cross-platform parties? In our first update this year (more information coming soon), 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.
Today’s announcement is an important one for us here at Psyonix, because 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. On behalf of the entire team, THANK YOU for your passion and persistence as we continue to do our best to make Rocket League the best experience we can.
We’ll see you out on the field!”
