Whether or not PAYDAY 3 is crossplay or crossave will be incredibly important to many prospective players of the game. In the last few years, it’s become a much bigger deal to be able to play games with your pals who are on different platforms to yourself.

PAYDAY is a four-player heist game where players will perform a variety of heists, increasing in scale and difficulty along the way. Considering the most recent game in this series was ten years ago, your old heist crew may not be on the same platform anymore.

So, let’s take a look at if crossplay will work in PAYDAY 3, as well as if your saves will move across too.

The great news is PAYDAY 3 will support crossplay across all platforms. So, it doesn’t matter what platform any of you and your pals are on - you can play with them regardless. The next big question will be does your progression also pass across to different platforms, which we will tackle next.

Alongside making sure you can play with anyone, it is important to know if you can play on different platforms too but keeping your progression. Many people have multiple platforms now, and with handheld gaming becoming popular again, cross-progression has become increasingly important.

Luckily, alongside crossplay, cross-progression will be supported in PAYDAY 3. This means you will have one account that you will level up across the different platforms and this will contain all of the goodies you have earned so far. 

That is all you need to know about crossplay and cross-progression in PAYDAY 3. If you still have questions, be sure to check out the rest of our PAYDAY 3 guides as we anticipate the release later this year.
