Is Exoprimal cross-platform?

Capcom’s latest release is all about you and four friends teaming up to mow down endless waves of dinosaurs while wearing powerful Exosuits. Being a multiplayer-only title, with no dedicated single-player mode to speak of, you’re going to be encouraged to party up with your friends rather than depend on the matchmaking systems most of the time. Recent years have seen a major push for multiplayer-focused games that release on all consoles, such as Exoprimal, to have full cross-platform support. However, does Exoprimal follow suit? Here’s the complicated answer to whether or not Exoprimal is cross-platform.

Is Exoprimal cross-platform?

On day 1, Exoprimal will support cross-platform matchmaking, but party creation will be specific to each platform ecosystem, as seen below in no particular order:
Group 1: Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows
Group 2: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5
Group 3: Steam

The short answer is sort of. The answer depends on how you’re playing the game.

If you are playing using the matchmaking system, where you are randomly matched with other players, then Exoprimal allows for players on all platforms (PlayStation, Xbox, and PC) to match together.

If you want to create a party with your friends, as most players will, then the answer will be slightly disappointing. As stated by the Exoprimal official Twitter account, on launch, the game will only allow specific platform groups to be made. These groups are:

  • Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Windows
  • PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5
  • Steam

If you have friends on any platform not in your group, you will not be able to form a group with them. Capcom is working on a way to allow players to create groups with their friends across all platforms, but as of the time of this writing, there is no estimated date for when that will be implemented. This is a surprising limitation, not only because of the industry trend toward multiplayer games allowing for cross-platform play, but also because you are required to create a Capcom ID to play Exoprimal.

For now, you are limited to either praying you find your friends on other platforms through matchmaking or only grouping up with friends that happen to be in the same group as you.

Is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 cross-platform?
Soldiers battle in an abandoned airport.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the latest addition to the award-winning franchise that most of us have been playing for well over a decade. Beyond the enhanced graphics, refined mechanics, and new gameplay features, one of the biggest draws to the COD world has always been online multiplayer. Not only does multiplayer return for MW3, but there’s more to love about the competitive space than ever before. 

But not everyone owns the same version of Call of Duty. Some of us are playing on our next-gen consoles, while others are rocking gaming PCs. So what does this mean when it comes time to join others online? Does MW3 support cross-platform gameplay? The answer is a bit more complex, but here’s all the facts.

This 6v6 multiplayer title will bring heroes and villains from all across Marvel together to battle it out in multiplayer mayhem. Aside from the game's release date, the biggest question on everyone's mind is what the cast of characters will look like. The only details shared so far state that there are "over a dozen" characters that will be included in Marvel Rivals, but we've scrubbed through the trailer and marketing materials to compile a complete list of all the heroes shown off. Here's every hero on the roster we can confirm so far.

Is Helldivers 2 crossplay?
Four players on a mission in Helldivers 2.

The Terminids are back in Helldivers 2, and only you and your friends can save Super Earth by working together. This sequel shifts the perspective of the first game from a top-down angle to a more traditional third-person one, but retains the chaotic formula of swarms of enemies and the ever-present threat of friendly fire.

Being so heavily dependent on co-op, you will always want a team of friends by your side when you drop planet-side to run missions. This is a rare case where a PlayStation-published game is launching not only on the PS5, but on PC at the same time. While that's great, the most important question is if PlayStation has added crossplay to Helldivers 2 so no one is stranded on their preferred platform.
