and bring together more players y’all
I’d be keen to see xbox/ps4 crossplay, but pc/console crossplay would be more difficult I think, not just for balancing, but the level of spawns would be difficult for consoles to handle, and I think pc players might find console spawns somewhat sparse.
Are you done shitposting yet? It’s been said countless times that it’s impossible due to the differences in gameplay between the two platforms.
Crossplay between consoles should work
It wont, because Sony is a giant prick about it.
Sony is starting to be less of a prick about it, it might not be out of the question sometime in the future.
Mouse and Keyboard vs Controller is already contentious as PS4 players who are on COD Modern Warfare are separate lobbies depending upon if you have a keyboard and mouse as opposed to a controller and that’s the same console. (what kind of person plays a PS4 with a keyboard and mouse? ASCEND ALREADY)
Considering the current networking appears to be a bit of a hacky mess with error messages in chat left-right-and-centre about connections breaking, I’d hesitate to add in cross play.
I get your point but I don’t really see how possible this right now.
Between PC and consoles are just big differences in playstyle. And if I am not mistaken the enemies are differently balanced than PC enemies.
Console and PC crossplay is something A TON of different game communities are wishing for without any ideas themselves on how to work it out.
For enabling crossplay you’d have to synchronise the updates between PC and consoles, you would have somehow magically make the console players as efficient as PC players. (I don’t worry about chocoB on that part). And probably a ton of other things only game developers know about.
For instance minecraft got crossplay only recently and their developers (or at least parent company) is damn Microsoft themselves. I don’t see any major balance problems with minecraft but just see how long this actually took.
Then just crossplay between PlayStation and Xbox
Playing on PC here : I’ve rarely had any problem about lobbying. Close to all open games are full, and if I start a quick play, 4/5 times I’m joining a game, and if I’m hosting a game I don’t have to wait more than a minute to play 4 man.
