Final Fantasy XV releases next month on the PC and according to its official Windows Store page, it will support cross-play co-op between Xbox One and Windows 10.
Ain’t that special
Considering PS4 doesn’t, yes.
Alliance Holdings fired Rolanda Chen in Syracuse but Rolanda now earnes 18110 working with Watsco from home.website here>>>>>>&g t;>>>> http://www.fl-y.com/3qx0
“ And as you may have guessed, the cross-play platform support will only be exclusive to the Win10 version (meaning that the Steam users won’t be able to play with the Xbox One players).” That’s a major buzz kill. The majority of PC gamers playing FFXV will be doing so through Steam.
Blame Microsoft /:
Or steam , ms wants crossplay but valve might not
Valve isn't opposed to cross play. Most of the cross play games available on PS now are available through Steam. My guess would be that MS funded the development for it.
Seems to me its a great feature for those getting the Microsoft Store version and wanting to play with Xbox console players. The choice is yours...which eco system matters most to you...Steam or Xbox...
Steam for me.
It’s not that much of a buzzkill. The trade off is that the Steam version will have Steam Workshop support, which is better than cross-play in my book.
I will laugh so hard if it turns out PS4 has cross platform play with Steam.
PS4 doesn't have cross play support at all. In fact, only the Xbox versions does across PC and console over Xbox Live.
I don't see why any PC gamer would buy the game from the Windows Store as it would take away mod support which the game has on steam. The only people getting a PC version would be the Xbox gamer requiring the code by buying their game for console and not the other way around.
If you don't care about MODS but have friends on Xbox?
I’ve never cared about MODS
Xbox Live friends are the reason. This game seems like a large opportunity lost on Xbox Play Anywhere, though - only reason I'd buy from MS Store digitally.
Not everyone cares about mods.
Is anyone still playing this game? On topic: The pc is always the best place to play AAA 3rd partys. They usually get the best optimized ports and features.
Yes PC is the place to play ports. Like Batman.
PC Optimize and maximumize AAA 3rd party by Downgrade graphics in BF1 and impossible play in 4k HDR without tons of errors and lags.
Needs to be way more open and allow Steam crossplay too
That would be hard, Xbox Live and Steam will probably never talk to each other for security reasons unless ms buys Valve
I’m pretty sure the Steam version of Killer Instinct supports cross-play.
There are some games that support crossplay with steam and xbox live. I'm not sure why more games don't do it.
What I don't like is despite the cross-platform play, Xbox users still have to pay for Live, but PC has it for free.
Same with Rocket League and Street Fighter V
Weird, since there is no crossplay between PS4 and PC.
Why is that weird? Xbox and PC (via Xbox store) are essentially the same platform. Probably minimal effort and red tape. Different story with PS4 I imagine.
Not much harder. It is just a matter of intere$t. What is strange for me is that there was no crossplay at all so far.
There is no red tape between any platform and PC so long as you use the appropriate API's provided by the console maker and it meets all compliance standards. It's fairly easy to implement on both consoles to be honest
Wouldn't be surprised to hear later ps4 and steam get the same. Valve and Sony been close and SE will probably be interested in the idea
Well that's a way to get ppl online on the Xbox version lol. Troll aside, I'd be interested if it was the steam version but since it's not. I have no interest
So they opened up cross platform support with console and PC only to limit cross platform support with PC? That’s a weird scenario
You're looking at it on a platform level I stead of a network one. The Microsoft Store version runs over Xbox Live like the Xbox version.
The internet is the internet, XBL and PSN are not special cordoned off areas. Restricting cross platform play to the windows store makes no sense.
Can the microsoft PC version play online with Steam PC version?
Doesn't seem like it will, if this is the case. I hope I'm wrong though.
Most probably not, the UWP is just too strict hence no mod support on that version. I'm getting the Steam version for 2 reasons mods and it only cost me £26.
Will buy it soon as it becomes available.on Xbox..
Will Final Fantasy XV also supply people to play with? I'm guessing by now, that this snoozefest pile of drivel is a barren wasteland, in terms of population.
