The Outlast Trials offers a new take on the series' brand of horror, allowing players to face its gruesome challenges in co-op for the first time ever. This naturally raises questions regarding the availability of crossplay and whether or not we can expect cross-platform support during or after the game's stint in early access.
The Outlast Trials crossplay would enable players to party up with others who purchase the game on a different storefront or platform. Aside from having to worry about fewer logistics if you plan on playing with friends, the feature would also ensure there's a bigger pool of players to draw from when relying on matchmaking to party up with strangers.
The Outlast Trials Crossplay Support
Unfortunately, The Outlast Trials crossplay will not be available when the game begins its stint in early access on May 18, 2023.
- The Outlast Trials crossplay status: Not available at early access launch; Planned for full release
The developer has, however, confirmed that it is planning on delivering The Outlast Trials cross-platform support when the game fully releases.
"For everyone asking about consoles, we are working to have The Outlast Trials be playable on as many platforms as possible with cross-platform play but no cross-progression," the studio wrote in a tweet from April 2023. "This will take time and we aim to have this for full launch, but it won't be available for EA."
Although there's no set launch date for the game's full version, the developer aims to have it out before the end of 2023. That being said, it will ultimately be determined by player feedback.
That is everything we know so far about The Outlast Trials crossplay and whether or not cross-platform support is expected at launch.
