Psyonix announced today that League of Firecrackers has entered the Beta program of PlayStation Cross-Play and is playable with people on PS4, Switch, Xbox One and Steam, making it just the second game to do so after Fortnite.
By default, players on any of these platforms will randomly marry to play online. The ability to make and participate in parts of different consoles is still in progress. Psyonix says its multi-platform party system, which was scheduled for last summer, will be released with the first update of the 2019 game, whose release date is currently unknown. Players can still play each other's games by setting up private matches. They simply will not be able to join the normal line of encounters.
After years without allowing, Sony finally changed its policy of cross-play last September, Fortnite the first online game to be played between the three main consoles and PC. When asked at the League of Firecrackers I would also be doing cross-play with PS4, the people of Psyonix have been suggested directly to PlayStation. It seems now that an agreement has been reached.
Sony did not immediately respond to a request Kotaku to comment when it will allow other games to participate in the Beta Cross-Play program.
