You wonder, is Rocket League crossplay or cross-platform? Rocket League has become a behemoth success, and a go-to game for fans of both cars and football, combining both into an adrenaline fuelled package. If you're enjoying the game, you may also want to try it out with friends on different platforms through crossplay. So, take a look at whether Rocket League has crossplay or cross platform play. 

How To Play Rocket League Crossplay Or Cross Platform?

Playing Rocket League cross-platform is now easier than ever before, allowing you to play alongside, or against, people on multiple platforms. Supported on Windows PC, macOS, PlayStation, Xbox, Linux, and Nintendo Switch, you can now play Rocket League with a huge variety of friends across multiple gaming consoles.

To enable Rocket League cross-play, all you will need to do is the following:

  • Launch Rocket League
  • Select Settings from the Main Menu
  • Select the Gameplay tab
  • Tick the "Cross-Platform Play" box

How To Enable Rocket League Cross-Platform Progression

Since becoming free to play, Rocket League has also introduced cross-platform progression, meaning that you can now share one profile across multiple consoles. The Rocket League cross-platform progression system ties in your Competitive Rocket League Ranks, Rocket Pass progress, and your inventory items gathered over the years.

Enabling Rocket League cross-platform progression requires you to have an Epic Games account, which you can then link to your active Rocket League account through the linking site. Once your accounts have been linked, you will have to select a primary platform. Then, this specific account will serve as your main account, whilst you can still access everything from the other platforms linked to your account. 

Unfortunately, there are some items that cannot be shared cross-platform. Platform-exclusive items such as the Sweet Tooth, Hogsticker, Armadillo, Mario and Luigi NSR, and Samus' Gunship will not be able to be transferred to another linked platform, whilst on-disc DLCs like the Batman/DC Superheroes pack and Credits/Esports tokens also can't be carried over to different platforms.

The trick here is that if you've got any of the non-transferrable items, then this should serve as your primary account, although it ultimately depends on which console you prefer to play on. 

Rocket League cross-platform and crossplay comes as a great way of being able to play on the go, especially with the Nintendo Switch, and is a great addition if you're ever thinking of switching allegiances in the console wars.
