Is Nintendo Switch PlayStation Killer

Crossplay: You play these games for PC, PS4, Xbox One or Switch together

You have a PC, a friend a PS4 and your colleague an Xbox One. Playing online together is apparently not possible, everyone stays for himself. No! Some games support cross-play or cross-platform play. The online service and the connected infrastructure of the respective game do not care which platform you start a game on. Everyone can come together in the online lobby and play a game together.

You can find out which games support crossplay and which platforms this applies to in our lists below.

Note: We avoid double lists. If a game offers crossplay for the four platforms W, X, Y and Z, we no longer count it in the separate list for the three platforms X, Y and Z. Of course, this also applies to other constellations. For this purpose, mobile titles are ignored, as is crossplay support between different PC launchers (such as Steam, Microsoft Store and Epic Games) and any support for crossplay with game streaming services.

Ubisoft Connect, which currently primarily offers cross-platform features for, for example, saved games, is also not taken into account. Real crossplay over a significant amount of the Ubisoft portfolio has only been announced so far.

Crossplay games: PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

Games that work equally on all four current gaming platforms and can be connected to one another online are rare. In February 2019 there were three. The number of titles has increased significantly in the meantime and is now in double digits.

Crossplay games: PC, PS4 and Xbox One

Games that only offer crossplay on PC, PS4 and Xbox One are in the minority compared to titles that also support the Nintendo Switch in addition to the three platforms (see above).
