About the Game

Elden Ring

In 2022, Elden Ring, an action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware, debuted. The game was directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki and features a game world created with the assistance of George R. R. Martin, the renowned author of fantasy novels.

In Elden Ring, you create a character and play as that character. The game is about the big quest to fix the Elden Ring and become Lord Elden. You see the game from a third-person perspective.

You can travel through six large areas on your character's horse and explore secret places called dungeons, where you can find things to help you in the game.

Elden Ring is more fun to play together online. You can help and fight against each other, which is also enjoyable. That's why many people started asking about cross-platform play and cross-platform progression right after the game's release.

Crossplay At the Elden Ring

According to recent reports, Elden Ring does not support cross-platform play between different console families or between consoles and PCs. Elden Ring is split into three separate systems for players on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, and there is no crossplay functionality between them. If you want to invite a friend to your session, they must play on a device with cross-platform compatibility, or the game won't be able to find them.

Cross-platform compatibility between platforms is as follows: PlayStation 4 players can play with PlayStation 5 players, and Xbox One players can play with Xbox Series X/S players. Such compatibility is called cross-gene compatibility. So, if you have a friend who still needs to catch the current generation of your shared favorite console, you can still play the game together.

Additionally, all previous-gen versions of Elden Ring come with free upgrades. If you purchase the PS4 or Xbox One version and then purchase a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S later, you can continue your game at no additional cost.

Select "Multiplayer Mode" from the in-game menu to play with friends. From now on, you can play with other players or even fight them face-to-face.

Just remember that your device must be connected to a network. You will also need to connect to the game's server. Once you do, enjoying all the multiplayer options Elden Ring offers will be easy.

Crossprogress At the Elden Ring

Players are also interested in cross-progression, which allows them to continue their game progress even when switching between different platforms. For example, you can quickly go from playing on PS4 to PC or any other supported platform without losing progress.

Unfortunately, Elden Ring does not support cross-progression at this time. Players will need to maintain separate save files for each platform they play on, meaning you won't be able to transfer your progress from one platform to another.


We can suggest alternatives for Elden Ring with cross-platform play. For example, you can play Fortnite, which also offers a "Battles with Storm" mode. Its cross-platform support extends to all available systems, making it easy to chat with friends.
