Psyonix announced that the sports-action hit, Rocket League, will support cross-network play between the Xbox One and Steam PC versions, making it the first-ever Xbox One game to do so. The patch that will add support for this feature will go live later today.
With this new addition, players can now easily include (or not include) cross-network rivals in both public and private matches, thanks to an easy-to-find toggle check box in the Options menu.
Jeremy Dunham, Vice President at Psyonix, said:
“We’re really excited to bring Xbox One and PC players closer together. Cross-network play has been something that Xbox One gamers have been asking us for since the day we launched, and thanks to Microsoft’s new cross-network policies, we’re proud to give it to them.”
Xbox One and Steam PC cross-network compatibility is scheduled to release worldwide starting 3pm PT/ 6pm ET/ 10pm UTC.
