Is Payday 3 cross-platform?

The PayDay series made a name for itself among the other contemporary co-op shooters of the time by putting players in the role of criminals attempting to pull off various heists. Each game in the series has upped the ante on more creative and fun places to burgle, break into, and extort for the titular payday. The latest entry, PayDay 3, offers plenty of new content as expected, but retains that core formula of teaming up with friends to coordinate the perfect job. However, it has been many years since the last entry so this will be the first exposure to the series for many players. With the game being available on all platforms, and even included at launch on Game Pass, you may want to stake out this article to learn if PayDay 3 supports cross-play.

Yes, PayDay 3 fully supports crossplay between all platforms, including PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. When booting up the game for the first time you will be prompted on whether or not you want to enable cross-play, so simply accept it and you will be good to go. If you select to not enable it, you can always switch it back on in the settings menu.

You will also be required to create a Starbreeze account before playing, which also means that PayDay 3 fully supports cross-platform progression. In short, you can not only play with anyone on any system, but you are free to transfer your progress between platforms as well.

State of Decay 3 reemerges with a new trailer, but no release date
State of Decay 3 zombie.

During the June 2024 Xbox Games Showcase, Undead Labs showed off a new trailer for State of Decay 3. While the trailer didn't reveal a release date, it did show some new gameplay. The studio also has a new logo, representing its transition from being an indie studio to an Xbox one.

The trailer shows a desolate world filled with zombies and third-person shooter gameplay. The atmosphere feels much more fantastical and supernatural with its red hues, and is akin to Redfall rather than games with a more realistic tone like The Last of Us or Days Gone.

Is Disney Dreamlight Valley cross-platform?

Mixing the addictive gameplay of a life-sim like Animal Crossing with the world of Disney was guaranteed to result in a hit. Disney Dreamlight Valley had been in early access for a few years while it added in more content, characters, quests, and tons of items. Even now that it is out, Gameloft has no plans to abandon its loyal players. Even in its early access state, Disney Dreamlight Valley has always been available on all platforms, but as of December 2023, the game got a massive multiplayer update. Farming and questing with friends in the Valley is the best way to play, but how robust is its cross-platform support?
Is Disney Dreamlight Valley cross-platform?
Unfortunately, the answer to this question is a little complicated. The easy part is that Disney Dreamlight Valley allows for cross-saves between all platforms, which include PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Mac, and Switch. Feel free to start on any platform and migrate to another later.

Crossplay, on the other hand, has one strange restriction. Disney Dreamlight Valley supports crossplay between all platforms except for PlayStation players. That means PlayStation players are only able to play with other people on PlayStation, while everyone else can join regardless of platform. There has been no word on whether this restriction will be removed in the future, but hopefully PlayStation players will be able to join in on the fun with everyone else soon. Thankfully, since you can move your save easily, you don't have to start over if you began on PlayStation and want to take advantage of crossplay on other platforms.
