Is Guilty Gear Strive cross-platform? We’ve rounded up everything you need to know about cross-platform play on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5 before you embark on the latest Guilty Gear installment of Arc System Work.
Guilty Gear Strive posted huge sales figures for a fighting game a month after its initial release in June 2021. The Arc System fighter exceeded expected sales figures, selling over 500,000 units.
Part of the reason for this glorious achievement was that the game carried Rollback Netcode – a Netcode that treats both players’ inputs as offline players, leaving little to no trace of lag.
The ability to fight against your friends and players around the world with a similar connection to playing with them in your living room was a compelling selling point for Strive.
But because players can only play with others sharing the same console, some Guilty Gear fans thought it was pointless. Until the big Arc System Works announcement last week revealed that Guilty Gear would be getting updates throughout a second season.
Is Guilty Gear Strive played cross-platform?
Arc System Works announced that: Guilty Gear Strive would become cross-platform during Season 2 – however, the update does not have a release date yet.
Do we know how Guilty Gear Strive cross-play works?
Taking advantage of Strive’s smooth online connectivity, players are allowed to fight on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5.
Cross-play has been a requested feature since Arc System first unveiled the game. While we now have confirmation that the feature will be available soon, we just don’t know exactly when.
Since the feature is not being added, the question of how it will work remains unanswered at the time of writing.
From the announcement, we know that Arc Systems will deliver the final season of one DLC character on March 28, and the story expansion at the end of April.
Therefore, we can deduce that cross-play will come out around the same time that Season 2 starts.
As we learn more about the newly added cross-play feature and final release date, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
