Rocket League is the first game to support cross-network play between Xbox One and PC

If you play soccer-meets-cars game Rocket League on Xbox One, your pool of opponents is about to get a lot bigger.

Today developer Psyonix is releasing an update for the Xbox version of the game that will allow for cross-platform play between Microsoft's console and PC players on Steam. "Cross-network play has been something that Xbox One gamers have been asking us for since the day we launched," says Psyonix's Jeremy Dunham, "and thanks to Microsoft's new cross-network policies, we're proud to give it to them."

Cross-platform play has been available in the PS4 and PC versions of the game since Rocket League launched last year, but the game didn't come to Xbox One until this February. In March, Microsoft announced that it would allow cross-platform play between the Xbox One and other platforms, and named Rocket League as one of the early titles to support the feature.

However, while players on both consoles can now go up against friends on PC, that doesn't mean Rocket League will support cross-platform play between Xbox One and PS4. While Microsoft seems open to the idea, Sony appears to be noncommittal on the topic, saying previously that "we would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play."
