PlayStation console-exclusive Godfall finally coming to Xbox

PlayStation is losing console exclusivity on one of the PS5’s most notable launch games, Godfall. Developer Counterplay Games and Gearbox confirmed today that the live-service action game will come to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Steam on April 7.

The Xbox and Steam releases coincide with the launch of Godfall: Ultimate Edition, a new version of the game that contains all of the DLC and updates for the game thus far. Godfall: Ultimate Edition will normally cost $40, though it will be discounted to only $30 at launch on Xbox consoles and Steam. It does not appear that Godfall: Ultimate Edition will be available via Xbox Game Pass on day one, so interested players will have to go out of their way to purchase it. If they do, those players will find that the Xbox Series X version Godfall supports variable refresh rate and Dolby Vision HDR.

On April 7, the Exalted update for Godfall will also launch and introduce many new features to the game. In addition to combat, boss, and menu tweaks, a new Valorplate shard system will be implemented and allow players to further customize their weapons’ abilities. A revive system and a recovery skill that will enable players to quickly recover from being knocked down are also coming, so Godfall shouldn’t be as punishing for Xbox players. This update will also introduce two new modes. The Exalted Tower of Trials will be a tough endgame challenge that will feature enemies up to level 150 and spawn multiple bosses simultaneously. Meanwhile, the Spirit Realms mode will task six players with working together to explore the material and spirit planes as they fight enemies.

Godfall: Ultimate Edition launches for Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on April 7. The game is currently available on PS4, PS5, and the Epic Games Store.

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.
