According to the announcement coming from the Blizzard Entertainment team just moments ago, Overwatch will support cross-play between Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One, and the new feature comes through an update to Battle.net, the platform dedicated to supporting multiplayer modes in studio games.
Overwatch can also be played via backwards compatibility on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, with cross-play supported on those devices as well, but first, players must have a Battle.net account and a link to the console they’re playing on either Switch, PlayStation or Xbox .
A studio spokesperson said:
The new update also merges lists of Battle.net friends from different regions (except China) into a unified list, so players no longer need to switch regions in Battle.net in order to be able to play with friends on the other side of the planet.
In the end, it was pointed out that the support of cross-play does not mean that the advantage of cross-play is available on all platforms, as no player will be able to transfer his rank and cosmetic items to any other platform. The situation is in the competitive phases, and home platform players will be matched with each other, and the same is true for PC players. As for the launch date, it is not yet specified, but it will be revealed soon, according to the title director’s statements.
Crossplay coming soon to Overwatch
I always look for a good story, perfect script, and exciting plot in any video game, and I don’t mind playing competitive games with innovative and exciting ideas.
