In today’s gaming industry, it has become a standard that all multiplayer games support cross-platform play. This feature is great for developers and players as it helps widen the player pool in multiplayer modes. It also helps those with friends to play on different platforms.

Some of these games will be free-to-play and support a cross-save feature, allowing players to save their progress across all available platforms. Games with cross-save support are uncommon in the industry, but we have mentioned a few on this list.

Best Cross-platform play games

1. Fortnite (Full cross-platform support)

Available platforms: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Windows, and mobile devices.

The massive free-to-play game from EPIC is one of the most popular games that feature cross-platform play. The game enables cross-play across PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Windows, iOS, and Android.

Fortnite also supports cross-progression, allowing players to access the purchased content on all platforms. Fortnite is a worldwide phenomenon that seems to grow with every new season. The game is adding new content each season and bringing together famous IPs.

If you’re not a fan of Classic Battle Royale, then there are plenty of other modes in the game. The game has added a permanent no-building mode that has been quite popular with the players. Fortnite is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One online stores for free.

2. Minecraft

Available platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Wii, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and mobile devices.

Minecraft is a game that needs no introduction. It might look like a game made for kids, but a good part of its playerbase consists of adults. The 3D sandbox survival game is a perfect creative canvas for the artistically inclined.

Minecraft comes in two different editions: Bedrock and Java Edition. The Bedrock edition of the game allows cross-platform play between PCs, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Switch, iOS, iPadOS, and Android devices. On the other hand, the Java edition only allows cross-play between Windows, Linux, or Mac devices.

Note: Minecraft also supports cross-progression if you use the same Microsoft account.

3. Apex Legends

Available platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and mobile devices

Apex Legends is another battle royale game that is free-to-play and even supports cross-platform play. It allows cross-play between PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC but not on Switch and mobile devices. It is the best first-person shooting game with fast-paced combat and special abilities.

The developer has also stated that they are working on bringing cross-progression to all platforms. Currently, cross-progression only works with PS4 to PS5 and Origin to Steam.

4. Among Us (Full cross-platform support)

Available platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and mobile devices.

Among Us is arguably one of the best games you can play with friends. The game is unlike any other and requires players to lie depending on their role. The developers are also supporting the game by adding new maps and roles to the game.

The game supports cross-play on all available platforms. So it doesn’t matter what device your friends are using. However, there’s no word on whether the upcoming VR version of the game will support cross-play or not. Players can also link their accounts across all platforms except Switch, taking all their progression and cosmetics.

5. Destiny 2

Available platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC

Destiny 2 is a sci-fi first-person looter shooter game and one of Steam’s most played games. It can be argued that it is also one of the most played on other platforms due to its live service model. The game supports both cross-play and cross-save across all platforms.

The game is known for adding new story content every three months, including new dungeons and raids. These updates are on top of major campaign DLCs added each year. If you want to buy a game you can play all year round, this is the one for you. The game also has a free-to-play version if you want to check it before buying.

6. Genshin Impact

Available platforms: PS5, PS4, PC, and mobile devices.

Genshin Impact is another popular free-to-play game that supports cross-play and cross-save. This gacha game has taken the world by storm. Players get access to an excellent single-player campaign and can also enjoy co-op mode once they reach Adventurer level 16.

They can team up with up to three of their friends regardless of what platform they are on. However, you will have to be from the same region. The game also features a cross-platform progression between PS5, PS4, PC & Mobile Devices.

7. Call of Duty: Warzone

Available platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC

The famous Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series reboot also brought Warzone. The battle royale game is a cross-platform game for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The game is a must-try for everyone, especially since it’s free-to-play.

Call of Duty: Vanguard, Modern Warfare, and Black Ops Cold War also support cross-play. However, Warzone incorporates weapons from every game and is constantly updated. It is one of the few FPS titles that support cross-play across PC and consoles.

8. Rocket League

Available platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

Rocket League is among the highest-rated sports games available at any online gaming store. It is free-to-play and features cross-play between all available platforms. The gameplay can be described as ‘vehicular soccer,’ and it is fun.

The game’s objective is to play football using your car, and the ball you play with is a giant one. Without spoiling anything else, I want to say that Rocket League is a must-try cross-play game available on PC, Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation consoles.

9. Overwatch 1 & 2

The sequel to the game, Overwatch 2, will be coming in October 2022. The good news is that the PvP side of the game will be free-to-play for all users. It’s also been confirmed that Overwatch 2 will support cross-platform play and cross-progression.

10. PUBG

We hope you can find some games to your liking on this list. If not, there are still many other cross-platform games you can check out by going to this link above.
