This could be us.
I mean, you’re a PC gamer and I’m an Xbox gamer. It’s complicated, I get that. People would talk, and what would they say? “Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene,” they might whisper in the village square. “From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life, whose misadventured piteous overthrows, do with their death bury their parents’ strife.”
Maybe something like that. Maybe not.
Anyway, Psyonix has announced that Rocket League is getting cross-platform play between PC and Xbox One with an update at midnight tonight. A TRYST! Of sorts. The game has already featured cross-platform play between PC and PS4 since launch, but this is also the first ever game to do the same on an Xbox platform.
Back in March, Microsoft confirmed that the company would now support cross-platform play between Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, and “other consoles”, extending an implied invitation to Sony.
“In addition to natively supporting cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10 games that use Xbox Live, we’re enabling developers to support cross-network play as well,” ID@Xbox boss Chris Charla explained at the time.
“This means players on Xbox One and Windows 10 using Xbox Live will be able to play with players on different online multiplayer networks–including other consoles and PC networks.”
We’re still waiting on that one.
