The free-to-play battle royale title lifts cross-platform walls across Xbox One and PC.
Hi-Rez Studios’ free to play battle royale title, Realm Royale launched for consoles – namely Xbox One and PS4 – back in August of last year, and the developers had stated their intention to enable cross-play for the title long ago. In a new update, they have now confirmed that cross-platform capabilities have finally been enabled in the game across Xbox One and PC.
That includes not only cross-play, but also cross-progression, so you can have a unified progression across Xbox One, Steam, and Discord. Notably missing is, of course, the PS4. Hi-Rez Studios have, in the past, publicly called out Sony for allegedly playing favourites with which games they allow cross-play for, but Sony have gone on to deny any such favouritism. Hopefully that means that cross-play being enabled for Realm Royale on the PS4 as well is more a matter of “when” than “if”, but it’s hard to say either way for sure right now.
