Full Cross-Platform Play Now Live in Rocket League

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).

To make sure that Cross-Platform play is enabled (it is by default), head to the "Main Menu," select "Options" and then make sure the "Cross-Platform Play" box is checked in the "Gameplay" tab. And that's all there is to it. You are now ready to play against gamers on other platforms across the world!

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!

Pretty cool? This is forking awesome! This is my dream! Finally I don’t have to go to my best friend who would always bash me because he has xbox and I own ps4. Just imagine all those shameful moments when after I told him how now I know how to air dribble or how I can hit those aerials and when we start playing on his xbox in splitscreen I can’t even kickoff ball properly because of different controler and everything. Can you imagine what source of joke I become at those moments? But now my friend, now I will show him how much he sucks! This is my revenge time thanks to psyonix!

Is there any kind of information to know against which platform we're playing?

Not sure if you're aware of this, but you can buy an X One adapter (that's the actual name of it) which allows you to use an Xbox Elite controller on your PS4. I use that, and I just take my controller with me when I go see my friend to play. Doesn't matter if the friend has Xbox, PS4, PC or Switch. I can just use my controller and be my usual awesome self :)

Why would I want to use xbox controller on my ps4? I love pa4 controller! Besides, don’t forget splitscreen which takes like 80 points from your overall skill :)

Two questions and an observation:

1. I take it every other platform is still getting the 'psynet' avatar or will we be able to tell the platform in the future? No reason, just would be nice to know
2. I know this is more a platform issue, but will text chat ever be available cross-platform because without it, this doesn't really do much other than combine the playlists

I had a number of casual games this morning and in almost every one I was the only ps4 player, which is more than usual suggesting I was having proper cross-play :)
but I noticed that the number of quitters was very high and the scores much more unbalanced. Is this a teething issue or just a random coincidence?

I'm not a big guy but I have big hands. I play on PS4 and for me, the controller is too small.
Are all controllers designed for feminine hands? Does anyone make a controller for adult sized hands?

Does anyone how the cross-play is going to work with each other? Because I have the same name on ps4 as on pc and both activated with the same e-mail.

Cross platform PLAY works just like it always has.
The only change this update has made is PS4/Xbox players are now allowed to join matches with players from the other platform.
The only change you are likely to see, at your end, is an increase in the number of PsyNet players in your matches.

RocketID (which is the upcoming cross-platform PARTY system) will require you to create a new player profile, directly in the game, and link that profile to your existing outside account.
My first guess, at this point, is RocketID will require you to create a unique account for each platform-specific account you have.
My next guess is that it won't be affected by your user name, or your email, even if they are the same for both accounts, because you are linking directly to your PSN and Steam accounts, which have their own unique identifiers.

When parting up with others in the future, will their be trading with other consoles such as PS4 to Xbox? Other than that great news!

No. Neither company likes the idea of players having items they paid for on the other console.
