Free-to-play first-person shooter Splitgate finds itself in the spotlight these days, after the launch of its open beta has brought in a massive wave of new players, subsequently causing a number of server issues. But even in the wake of unavailable matchmaking, it's important to know if crossplay is part of the package and if you can make use of cross-platform support to challenge your friends regardless if they're on console or PC.
As a multi-platform multiplayer title, Splitgate would only stand to benefit from cross-platform support. Although it's not an issue at the moment, maintaining a steady playerbase is one of the bigger challenges for multiplayer games and crossplay would inevitably expand the available pool of players that could go into a match.
It's good, then, that Splitgate does, indeed, feature cross-platform support, even while in beta. In fact, that's one aspect that developer 1047 Games aims to test prior to its launch, now set for August.
Crossplay will also transition into Splitgate's full version, allowing fans to "play with or against your friends across multiple consoles and PCs," according to the game's Steam page.
As long as the ongoing server issues get fixed, this could be an extra step that helps Splitgate establish itself as an important name in the multiplayer FPS sphere. If you've yet to try out the title, its open beta has been extended until its new release date next month.
