Rocket League Finally Has Cross-Play With PS4 Starting Today

Cross-play parties coming in a future update.

Cross-play is finally available in Rocket League between PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam. PlayStation 4 Rocket League players can start playing against drivers on other consoles right now through the PS4 cross-play beta program.

While cross-play is now enabled by default, players can ensure cross-play is on by going to the "Options" page via the Main Menu. From there you can check to see that the "Cross-Platform Play" box is checked in the "Gameplay" tab.

Rocket League is also going to release its cross-platform party system as part of the first update in 2019. After being delayed into 2019, Rocket League players can finally partner up with friends on any platform through the new party system.

While the new cross-platform party system ensures matchmaking on any platform "with the push of a few buttons," there is technically a way to play with your friends across consoles now. Simply create a private match and friends on different consoles should be able to play with one another that way.

Rocket League developer Psyonix was an early proponent of cross-play and tried to get PlayStation to join the existing cross-play functionality for Rocket League between Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch as early as 2017. Psyonix even called cross-play the future of gaming.

However, PlayStation was for the longest time the lone holdout on cross-play after citing safety concerns, which other console makers took issue with. It wasn't until late last year that PlayStation turned on cross-play with other consoles for Fortnite. Since then there has been a handful of games with cross-play between PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Check out our Rocket League guide for the best tips to help you no matter what console you're playing against.
