In the game’s official Twitter, the fighting game was announced as the streaming console’s latest free monthly game for Pro subscribers with crossplay support available. Battle for the Grid offers cross-platform functionality with the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Stadia with a library of old and new Power Rangers seen in decades-worth of shows and films. It also brought the Rangers into a modern generation game setting after making its rounds across mobile and handheld platforms.
But Battle for the Grid also separates itself as a fighting game that can work through demanding internet connections. For competitors, timing is a key aspect in precise attacks while lags can turn the tide of fights. According to IGN, strong online features are a must in online matches while it’s rare to see five systems work seamlessly. Ars Technica argued in October 2019 the genre also suffers from a “delay-based” obstacle that hits players in critical moments while online latency means players have to make their moves a bit earlier for them to register.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid was released in 2019 by developer nWay and continues receiving support through additional Rangers and online DLC.
