Now then Splitgate has reached a wider audience, you might think about giving it a try. Luckily, this game is free to play and available on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S.
However, what about playing with friends on other platforms? After all, competitive shooters are much more fun with friends. To do Splitgate provide any kind of cross-platform support? This is a feature that has begun to be implemented in multiplayer games more often, so consumers are increasingly looking forward to it. Here, we’ll show you everything you need to know about SplitgateCrossplay support.
Fortunately, Splitgate provides cross-play for all platforms. This means you can pair with anyone on any platform, making it easy for everyone to play together. And you’ll want to team up with friends, regardless of their background, because you get bonus XP for having other people on your team. By default, crossplay is enabled, which ensures the lowest possible wait times. You can turn this off to limit your search to just your own platform, but keep in mind that this can greatly increase wait times.
To disable crossplay, press the . button Menu key word button Splitgate screen. From here, navigate to Settingand then switch to Privacy, where you’ll see a check box for crossplay. If you deselect and return to the main menu, your search will be limited to the platform you are using. We almost always recommend enabling crossplay though.
In spite of Splitgate offering cross-play, adding friends from other backgrounds isn’t as obvious as it could be. If your friends are already on your platform, it’s easy to pair them up, but if not, you may need an interpreter. From the main menu you’ll notice the game has slots for each of the people you can join your team – up to a total of four-player teams. Under each position, it will have a NS on PlayStation or ONE on Xbox, so press that button on your platform to go to You menu.
This menu has a lot of options that you can flip through, displayed at the top. Tab past Add friends and you will be able to enter the ID, regardless of the player’s background. Your ID is displayed at the top of the screen, so you can give it to a friend so they can add you. Navigate down Enter your friend’s ID, where you can enter their code to be added.
Once you’ve added your friend(s), return to the tab You sub-menu and then you can navigate between your platform’s friends list or your general list Splitgate friends list (on all platforms). Select a friend and then press Invitation to the party to send them an invitation. You will now stay in the same team until you disband.
