Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid was a bit of a surprise last year. Those booting it up probably didn't expect what they found: a spiritual successor to the Marvel Vs. Capcom series in a Power Rangers wrapper. Today, Battle for the Grid gets a few more features, and one is very notable: full crossplay.
As part of today's v2.0 update for Battle for the Grid, crossplay has been enabled across all platforms. Fighters on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch can all brawl in the same matchmaking queue, hopefully opening up a larger pool of available players at any given time.
Also included in the update is a lobby system and spectator mode. Eight players can drop into a lobby and play up to four matches simultaneously, meaning everyone can brawl or take a break and watch another match. It's part of Battle for the Grid's long post-launch rollout, adding everything from new Rangers and villains to a story mode and voiceover work from the original Power Rangers cast.
Battle for the Grid plays out in three-on-three battles, similar to the Marvel Vs. Capcom series. In fact, some characters even feel eerily eerily similar to other Marvel characters. On top of the rangers and villains, you can also call in Megazords to hit your opponents. Ouch.
