Is MultiVersus cross-platform?

Gaming has come a long way since the days of locking multiplayer games between consoles, PC, and even mobile. It wasn’t that long ago that if you wanted to play an online game with your friends, you all had to be playing on the same system. Now, however, more and more titles are embracing the cross-platform future in which it doesn’t matter where you own a game. As long as you and your friends all have it, you can match up regardless of whether you’re on PC or console.

MultiVersus is not only a game that heavily relies on a thriving and populated online community to function but is also free to play. Both factors mean that the developers want as many people playing as possible, with no barriers to entry. So, naturally, they would want to include cross-platform support, right? If you’re unsure if you can play with others on different systems, and if so whether you can swap between platforms yourself and not lose progress, here’s a full breakdown of MultiVersus’ cross-platform support.

Yes, even in the beta phase MultiVersus has full cross-platform support across all consoles and PC. You can play with, and against, players on any other platform at any time, including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Unfortunately, the game is not out on Switch, leaving that platform as the one missing link. If the game does eventually make its way to Switch, we expect it to have cross-platform support at launch.

Additionally, MultiVersus also has complete cross-progression support so you can carry over any characters, cosmetics, and battle pass progression you have on one system and pick it up on another. You’re never stuck on one platform in this hit platform fighter, so get out there and get brawling with your friends!

Once you and your friends have fought enough in MultiVersus, be sure to check out some of the other best cross-platform games out right now.

Xbox, PlayStation, and PC: Is Elden Ring cross-platform?
Characters fighting on horseback in Elden Ring.

When it launched in 2022, Elden Ring was an immediate hit. The challenging game took everything great from previous FromSoftware titles and merged it with a sweeping open world to explore -- letting players venture in any direction just a few minutes after starting the game. That also made it incredibly daunting. Not only did you have to contend with nightmarish monsters and rage-inducing combat, but you had to figure out how to best reach your next destination without stumbling upon enemies that were twice your skill level.

Thankfully, Elden Ring makes use of a (cryptic) multiplayer system, allowing you to explore the Lands Between with a buddy by your side. You can also read and leave messages for other players, giving them tips and tricks to guide their journey. But is Elden Ring cross-platform, or are you stuck playing with folks on the same platform as you?

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.

MultiVersus returns in May with a new mode, Unreal 5 tweaks, and more

WB Games and Player First Games announced that MultiVersus, their free-to-play fighting game featuring characters from various Warner Bros.' owned properties, will return on May 28.

MultiVersus, a fighting game heavily inspired by Super Smash Bros., originally entered an Open Beta period on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox in July 2022 and became a surprise hit when I did so. I gave MultiVersus a three-and-a-half-star review and called it "fun at its core, with a take on the platform genre that is wholly unique." Interest in the game eventually dropped off hard, though, and in March 2023, WB Games announced plans to take the game offline so Player First Games could refine it for a 2024 release. It's been unplayable online since June 2023, and fans worried whether MultiVersus would ever return.
