Guilty Gear Strive crossplay: when can you play with friends across platforms?

Everything we know so far about Guilty Gear Strive crossplay

Guilty Gear Strive is one of the best fighting games out there, boasting stunning visuals and welcoming yet complex combat, but despite all of that, the game is missing some pretty major features right now.

One of those features is crossplay between PC and PlayStation consoles. Sony has a reluctant history for accepting crossplay functionality, as shown by documents from the Epic vs Apple lawsuit, but it seems the company has since changed its stance on the matter.

Guilty Gear Strive is one example of the turning tide, with the much requested feature officially on the near horizon. So when is it coming? Here’s everything we know about Guilty Gear Strive crossplay, including when it’s set to make an appearance and how you’ll be able to play with friends, regardless of what platform they play on.

At the moment, PC and PlayStation players are restricted to their respective platforms – so anyone on mouse and keyboard can’t fight against those using the PS5 DualSense. If you own the PS4 version however, you can play PS5 players and vice versa.

A recent interview with the developers on Comunidad Arc System Works though has shed light on when crossplay between PC and PlayStation will arrive.

“We are going through the verification processes for it,” says Arc System Works. “But there are still many practical issues like schedules and the running costs of matching servers. It will take a little more time before we can make a concrete announcement.”

In other words, watch this space. But it’s coming.

Can you disable Guilty Gear Strive Crossplay?

Since full Guilty Gear Strive crossplay hasn’t arrived yet, it’s unclear whether you’ll be able to disable the feature. While it is a common feature in other competitive games, you can’t turn crossplay off between PS4 and PS5, so it’s unlikely this feature will be available when crossplay launches.

That’s everything we know about Guilty Gear Strive crossplay at the moment. It’s not the only thing coming to the game – it’s been confirmed that an exclusive PS5 move, accessibility settings, and a season pass are all on the way, so read up on our Guilty Gear Strive tips to get prepared for the content drop.
