The just announced tag team fighter based on the popular franchise will have a (mostly) unified player base across all systems.
Power Rangers: Battle For Grid is a brand new fighting game based on Power Rangers that was announced earlier today. It’s headed to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, and will be a tag based fighting game (somewhat in the vein of Dragon Ball FighterZ).
When the game launches, it will actually probably be worst on the PS4, however. The developers confirmed in the press release announcing the game that the Switch, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game will have cross-platform play as well as cross-platform progression, which means you can play with players on other systems with these versions, and carry your progress across these versions. However, the PS4 version will not have either of these capabilities. If nothing else, this means that finding matches on the PS4 will be harder, theoretically, than it will be on the other versions.
It’s unclear why the PS4 version of the game is left out of the unified pool in this instance, because with games like Rocket League and Fortnite, Sony have begun to allow cross platform play and progression to some degree. Hopefully, in the future, that capability can be patched into the PS4 version of this game as well.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid launches for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC later this year. Check out the game’s announcement trailer below.
