No cross platform gameplay for Elden Ring

Unfortunately, the answer is no, you can’t. While Elden Ring does offer crossplay support, it does not offer a cross-platform option.

We’re about to explain what that means so that there isn’t any confusion. In principle, this means PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players can game together, same as Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S co-op support.

However, PS gamers will not be able to co-op with PC or Xbox players, as an example of Elden Ring’s cross-platform limitations.

Thus far, neither Bandai Namco nor From Software have confirmed this might change. However, there is always a chance the developer could add a feature like cross-platform in Elden Ring through an update.

We know that exploring the vast, dangerous open world of Elden Ring can be scary alone, and you would rather do it with one or multiple friends.

That’s why we urge you to make sure you make the right decision on which platform you are getting Elden Ring so that you can actually play with your friends.

The co-op side of Elden Ring allows you to summon other players into your game using summoning signs, similar to what you might have experienced in the Dark Souls series.

When you use the Furlcalling Finger Remedy, found in the multiplayer menu, you’ll see summoning signs on the floor, which represent other players who are willing to connect with you online.

However, the future could still hold surprises for us and you never know when something like this will become possible.

Also, if you were wondering about the crossplay features that Diablo 2 Resurrected has, we got your back.
