Since the launch of ” Top legends, Cross-play has been one of the most requested features from our players who want the ability to play with their friends on other platforms. During the cross-play beta, players will have full access to cross-play functionality when we collect data, test the feature on a scale, and most importantly, for feedback, fans, listen to you , ”Explains game director Chad Grenier.
Crossplay will be turned on by default, Respawn says, but only in the way that PS4 and Xbox One players will be placed alongside each other in the lobby. If players opt for a PC-console lobby to team up with a PC friend playing through EA’s Origin client, they will be placed in the PC server. (Respawn says that Steam players will be supported when the Steam version of the game launches later this year.) Response is highly encouraging players not to disable crossplay, however, doing so in queue time. May increase.
“If you want to disable cross-play completely, you can disable cross platform play in the Settings menu. By doing this you will only match with other users on the same platform who have disabled cross platform play, ”says Grenier. “This is a high chance of making your queue too long, as we speculate that most users should have cross-play enabled that requests its default state of ‘enabled’ and features from so many players . We highly recommend skipping cross platform play to ensure the best experience possible. “
Response is enabling a universal in-game friend search feature to find players and create parties across platforms. As for cross-progress, Grenier says it will have more information about that feature closer to the launch of its official Steam version later this year. Top legends Nintendo is likely to come to Switch at some point this fall, but it is unclear whether Respawn will enable crossplay for that platform as well.
