The popular team-based shooter Overwatch has expanded the number of players that can be part of their squad with the new cross-play feature added to the game on Tuesday. It doesn’t matter whether they’re playing on PC, Switch, Xbox, or PlayStation, friends can band together for matches. But there is a catch.
allows players on PS4, , Xbox One, , Nintendo Switch and PC play together on the same team. However, they will not be able to play competitive modes, nor will players be able to postpone their progress when grouped together. The reason for this is to prevent PC gamers, who have various material advantages over console gamers, from dominating and getting easy wins.
Console players who wish to participate in Overwatch cross-play will need to create a free Battle.net account and link their console to it. Players who log into Overwatch before the end of the year will receive a Golden Loot Box to celebrate.
