With its release imminent, you might be wondering: is Street Fighter 6 crossplay?
The latest addition to the hugely popular combat series is set to come out with a host of new features, characters and game modes. However, it’s the returning online combat mode that many players will be most excited to get their teeth stuck into.
Right from the start of the Street Fighter franchise playing versus your friends has been one of the central appeals and, in the modern gaming landscape, crossplay is a vital part of this. It’s not uncommon for gamers to own multiple systems too. With the game set to release on PlayStation Xbox and PC, the exact edition you buy could be affected by whether you can play with friends on different platforms.
Is Street Fighter 6 crossplay?
Street Fighter 6 is fully crossplay. This means you can play across systems with ease. The full range of platforms the game will be available on come release day is PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Not only can a PlayStation 5 user join a competitive match with an Xbox Series X gamer, but the combat game is cross-generation too, so someone on PS4 can join the fray.
