Have you just recently picked up Chivalry 2 on and are now wondering if it supports crossplay between all platforms? Its Battlefields are ready to be bloodied by players thirsting to show off their skills in battle. But whether you're a stalwart, shield-bearing defender, a cowardly crossbowman, or just prefer throwing boulders at everything you see, you may be wondering if Chivalry 2's cross-platform parties are supported at launch.
Chivalry 2's cross-platform support has been discussed since before release. There were even closed and open beta tests, during which developer Torn Banner Studios sought to test stability and iron out remaining kinks.
Chivalry 2 Crossplay and Cross-Platform Parties
This, naturally, means that Chivalry 2 did launch with crossplay support. Hopping into the game, you will be able to fight with and against others on other platforms.
But while matchmaking won't lock you to playing with only your PC and console peers, actually teaming up with friends who might own different versions of the game is still harder than it should be.
"Cross-platform Parties were not a planned feature for June 8, 2021 Launch. We acknowledge that our messaging around what Chivalry 2 ‘cross-play’ would and wouldn’t entail caused confusion," the developer explains in the FAQ article on the game's official website.
Chivalry 2 cross-platform parties are often brought up in online discussions and, although the developer previously expected them to go live in Summer/Q3 2022, the feature has yet to make it to the game.
- Chivalry 2 crossplay status: Available since launch
- Chivalry 2 cross-platform parties status: Unclear at the moment, but likely still in development
This essentially means that, although servers will be populated with players on different platforms – as long as they have crossplay turned on –, you won't be able to invite friends into parties unless you're on the same platform.
If you plan on playing together, you'll have to manually join the same server using the server browser or pray to the fickle matchmaking gods.
It's unclear when we can expect Chivalry 2 cross-platform parties to be added to the game, but we're hoping it won't be long before we get an official announcement on the matter/.
