Blizzard has introduced cross-platform play into Overwatch after promising the feature was coming earlier this month. The feature will  enable friends to play with one another across Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation4, PlayStation 5,  Nintendo Switch, and PC. Console players will have to create account and link it to their console of choice to play.

β€œBy default, a party of console players will play with other console players,” game director Aaron Keller explained in the video announcing the cross-play feature earlier this month. β€œA party of PC players will play with PC players, as well as groups that consist of both PC and console players.

Blizzard released an extensive FAQ clarifying how cross-play would work earlier this month. Progression will not carry over between platforms, and stats and ranks will not be reset. Cross-play will not work in Competitive modes, according to Keller, likely to compensate for the inherent advantage that comes with aiming with a keyboard and mouse. Console players will be able to play Competitive modes with one another, however.

To celebrate the launch of the cross-play feature, Blizzard has said that everyone who logs into Overwatch by the of the year will receive a free Golden loot box. Not a bad deal, just for logging in.
