Is Diablo: Immortal cross-platform?

What, do you not own a phone? Jokes aside, Diablo: Immortal was thankfully spared the unfortunate fate of being a mobile exclusive game as it was originally intended to be at launch. While console players are still left out of the fun, you can at least choose to play this free title on either your smart device or PC. The PC and mobile platforms are quite different, with there being little debate over the fact that PC offers far better command over controllers, let alone touch controls.

For an action RPG, especially a free-to-play one, players will no doubt want to know if they can play with their friends regardless of what platform they choose to play it on. Beyond that, many will also want to know if Diablo: Immortal supports cross-progression as well, allowing them to bounce back and forth between the two platforms and pick up right where they left off. If you’re curious if Diablo: Immortal is cross-platform and has cross-progression, we’ve got the answers.

Yes, Diablo: Immortal offers full cross-platform play between the mobile and PC versions of the game. You are free to party up with companions with a mix of both PC and mobile players whenever you wish. Better yet, you don’t need to do anything to enable this functionality, as long as you are playing with a free battle.net account and not as a guest. The only small restriction is that you can only play with players on the same server as you.

Again, yes, Diablo: Immortal smartly lets you carry your progress from one platform to the next with no hassle. Just like with cross-platform play, all you need to do is log in to the game using the same battle.net account on your mobile and PC devices to carry all your progress over from one system to the other. You can now fight the hoards of the undead with whoever you want, wherever you want, with no fuss!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons' laid-back gameplay has taken the world by storm and shows no sign of slowing down. There's never been a better time to stay inside and enjoy the leisurely island lifestyle -- and people are loving what the title has to offer. But once you've burned through your first 40 hours, New Horizons is best played in short bursts. Most people will log in for a few minutes each day, see what's happening on the island, finish their daily tasks, and quickly log out. While mods can add more variety, sometimes you need a fresh take to really scratch that itch.  None of the following suggestions are identical to New Horizons, but they all offer a unique combination of crafting, exploring, and chatting with your NPC neighbors that New Horizons fans are bound to enjoy.

Is Stardew Valley cross-platform?
Stardew Valley Multiplayer Fishing

Stardew Valley is a game made by just one person, but it has seen more success than most games made by dozens, or even hundreds, of people. It's even one of Digital Trends' top 50 video games of all time. Since its release in 2016, the game has been updated regularly with new features and content to keep its avid fans coming back. This includes an online multiplayer component that allows you and up to three friends to hang out on each other's farms. And with the recent trend of games allowing players on different platforms to join together, you may wonder if Stardew Valley offers cross-platform functionality. Here's everything we know about cross-platform support in Stardew Valley.
Is Stardew Valley cross-platform?
Stardew Valley does not offer cross-platform support, meaning you can't play online multiplayer between any of the systems the game is on. So if you want to team up with some friends, make sure you all are playing on the same platform, such as the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, or PC. Also be aware that whoever starts a multiplayer game is saving that shared world locally, meaning no one else can reenter that world without the host present.

The sad fact of the matter is there doesn't seem to be any indication that crossplay will come to Stardew Valley. The game's official Reddit still lists it as not being supported, and there was only one mention of it by the developer on Twitter back in 2018, when he responded to a question asking if crossplay would come to the game. He replied, "Unfortunately, there will not be crossplay. Apparently, the technical barriers are very high. It's still something I really want to add and I promise to look into it more closely, but first priority is getting the update out there." This was many years ago, and there has been no further information about cross-platform play since, so it seems very unlikely that we will see support for this functionality come to Stardew Valley.
