FIFA 22 cross-play – can you play with friends across platforms?

Everything you need to know about FIFA 22 cross-play, including whether you can play with friends on the same console family

FIFA 22 cross-play: Three players can be seen celebrating alongside one another.

Want to know if FIFA 22 cross-play is being implemented into the latest version of the sports game? FIFA 22 is now in the hands of players and everyone is getting stuck into the different modes the game offers, including Division Rivals and the Career Mode. But, can you take on or team up with friends if they are on a different platform?

Playing against your friends will require a team of the best players, including the best centre backs, best strikers, and best wingers if you want to stand a chance at thrashing them, regardless of what platform you’re playing on.

However, if you’re looking to play friends on a different platform to the one you’re on, things get pretty tricky. Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 22 cross-play, including the limitations between platforms.

FIFA 22 Cross-Play

FIFA 22 does not have complete cross-play. You are only able to play with your friends who are on the same platform as you. So, PS5 players can only play with other PS5 players. The same is true for Xbox Series X|S, Switch, PC, and Stadia players.

There is cross-gen cross-play for those who are on last-generation consoles: PS4 and Xbox One. This allows PS4 players to play with PS5 players and Xbox One players to play with Xbox Series X|S players. However, those players have to be playing the PS4 or Xbox One version of the game on their next-gen console. If you are on the next-gen version of the game, you can only play with other next-gen players in the same console family.

Fans have been wanting cross-play for a number of years now and there is no word from EA if this feature will be added in the future, either. So, it seems like you will be stuck playing with your mates who own the same platform as you.

That covers all you need to know about FIFA 22 cross-play. If you are getting stuck in now that the game is out, take a look through our other guides on the game, including the FIFA 22 Puzzle Master SBC solutions and FIFA 22 Around The World SBC solutions.
