Is NHL 24 crossplay? As fans start to gear up for the arrival of NHL 24, many have grown curious about whether crossplay will be available this year, and if so, to what extent. Over the years, the EA NHL series has expanded on the features it’s offering in not only several different game modes, but also from the crossplay experience it catered for the first time last year.
With the NHL 24 release date still weeks away, EA has begun to pick up its pace with its reveals, with the NHL 24 pre order editions and new gameplay features already available for fans to check out. But for some, the biggest box to check comes down to the very means of playing with and against friends, no matter their console platform in NHL 24. And if you’re wondering if crossplay will be in NHL 24, then you’ve come just to the right place.
Will NHL 24 have crossplay?
Yes, NHL 24 will be home to crossplay upon the game’s arrival this October. And to add to it, crossplay will grant fans the opportunity to play with and against their friends. This is a major upgrade to what the community had to work with last year in NHL 23, which only allowed you to play against your friends.
However, fans will only be able to play with or against friends across same-generation consoles. So for example, anyone who play’s on PlayStation 5 but has a friend they want to play with on PlayStation 4, won’t be able to because of the differences with how each console functions.
As is the case for all sports video games, the crossplay feature will apply to online modes only, including HUT and World of Chel. Seeing how popular these modes are, crossplay will now significantly improve wait times and the overall matchmaking quality.
“It’s taken two years to get to this point,” said EA NHL Creative Director Mike Inglehart, when VideoGamer asked him in an exclusive interview what they learned from crossplay last year that will make it better in NHL 24.
“We heard the feedback last year that people wanted more, and we knew going into (NHL) 24 that we were going to finish off that story,” said Inglehart. “So I’m very happy with where we’ve got to and I think it’s going to finally finish that lap around the track for people that were thirsting for crossplay capabilities.”
