Rocket League developer Psyonix will release an update on February 19 that will allow creating Parties and Clubs with players on all different platforms. Crossplay between PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch was already possible with random players.
Psyonix is adding a new Friends List to the game’s main menu with the Friends Update. In it, players can add friends regardless of the platform on which they play the game. Then players can create parties and play together.
The new friends list consists of four tabs: Friends, RocketID, Recent Players and Alerts. The first tab shows all friends who are playing on the same platform. The RocketID tab also shows friends playing on a different platform. All Rocket League players are automatically assigned a RocketID, which consists of the player name and four random numbers.
An overview of opponents or fellow players from recent matches appears in the Recent Players tab. From this list, players can send each other friend requests, regardless of the platform. In the Alert tab, all interactions such as friend requests, invitations to Parties and Clubs are collected. Clubs are also fully cross-platform after the update.
Crossplay has long been possible in Rocket League between PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. In January Sony also gave in and the PlayStation 4 was added.
