We have official confirmation from Warner Bros about the availability of crossplayfor Mortal Kombat 11 – it has been added with the new 1.13 patch.
The addition of cross-play had already emerged yesterday with the release of the Mortal Kombat 11 update, but without the official word and run down from WB Games it was not clear whether it was on its way.
The confirmation came shortly after from WB Games, which stated that the Krossplay is currently active between PS4 and Xbox One. By installing the 1.13 patch, therefore, PS4 players will be able to play with the Xbox One online multiplayer and vice versa, making Mortal Kombat 11 one of the few titles that still support crossplay between the two consoles.
Here’s how it works
If a player has the Krossplay feature toggle on, they can play against others on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One in two ways:
Whenever players matchmake in Online Kasual modes, the game will now look for the best match across prospective PlayStation 4 and Xbox players.
Designated Krossplay Online Rooms will provide a central location for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players to manually meet up and fight against other players on opposite platforms in Online Kasual game modes.
NB: Friends on opposite platforms will need to coordinate outside of the game ecosystem, then meet up in a specific Krossplay Online Room to play each other.
