Rocket League Gets Cross Network Play

Rocket League Gets Cross Network Play 1
| Mar 14, 2016

Rocket League is one of, if not the hottest online game in the world. Now, it will only get more popular, as it is the first cross-network game.

Cross network capability is one of the biggest requests from gamers everywhere. Restrictions on consoles and PC made it seem like it might never happen, but for Rocket League, that dream becomes a reality this spring. As of now, the cross-network play is for Xbox One and PC, but according to the game’s website, more information regarding other platforms isn’t far away.

Psyonix’s online soccer game has really carved a place for it in the online landscape. The developer tracked at least 12 million players gearing up to play, and that number is only growing. While it does include free downloads from services like PlayStation Plus, that is still a lot of people playing, which is what makes this news so exciting.

What a time to be alive. Microsoft will probably push cross play with Windows 10 and Xbox One a little harder now. The now cancelled Fable Legends was supposed to do the same, but  Rocket League could be the perfect game to test the waters with as it’s a third party title available on multiple platforms.  I’m interested to see how this works out, and I can’t wait to see what other developers decide to try this approach. I know it’s a long way away, but this could be the beginning of online play without shackles. At the very least, it’s a step in the right direction
