Yes, Minecraft Legends supports crossplay and cross-platform on all platforms, meaning players can play the co-op and PvP mode with their friends playing across PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.

However, it’s important to note that players must sign in to their Microsoft account in order to enable it. So we advise signing up for a new account if you don’t have one. After that, you can open the Friends tab in order to invite your friends to the game.

Yes, Minecraft Legends also supports cross-progression functionality. As a result, your progress will be carried over if you switch from PC to console or vice-versa. However, as mentioned earlier, signing in to your Microsoft account is mandatory to enable it. We recommend doing that right away if you want to play the game across different platforms.

At the same time, it’s also worth noting that you will need to purchase separate copies of Minecraft Legends if you want to play the game on a different device. So if you have purchased it for your PC, you can only play it on your computer. If you wish to play the game on a console, you will have to buy an additional copy.

That’s all you need to know about Minecraft Legends' cross-platform and cross-progression support. In case you’re wondering how long it will take to beat Minecraft Legends, then here's a guide for that.
