Sony Cross-Play Available to All Games

In yesterday’s Wired article announcing the price drop of PlayStation Now, an interesting bit at the end apparently also announced cross-play is available to all games.

While the focus of the article was the big changes that came to PS Now, like God of War and other major first party games now available on the service, cross-play is discussed at the end. Wired states that “PS4’s cross-play efforts have officially moved out of the beta stage”, strangely with no announcement from Sony.

While cross-play on PS4 has been available for Fortnite and Rocket League for a while this means any game can theoretically do it. PUBG immediately took advantage of the end of the beta and announced the update was live yesterday. With Call of Duty Modern Warfare offering the feature at launch it’s likely many other games will start to add it soon.

As for the PS Now change, the service is available for $59.99 a year now, down from $99.99 previously. The monthly version is down from $20 to $9.99. The previously mentioned God of War, Infamous: Second Son, Uncharted 4, and GTA V were all also made available to download or stream.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Announced; First COD Title to Feature Crossplay

Today Activision announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will release on October 25 and is a “reimagining” of the series.

The Infinity Ward developed title in the long-running series was also confirmed to feature crossplay between consoles and PC. The campaign makes a return as well after being absent for Black Ops 4. It won’t be a copy of the original game’s campaign though. Ars Technica reports you will play a part of it as a rebel soldier in the Middle East.

Also confirmed today there will be no annual past like past Call of Duty games. Post-launch content like maps will be free for all players, although no mention of microtransactions or other possibly paid content.

Alongside the campaign and PvP, Activision announced cooperative modes for the game and a cohesive experience across all three. No details as to what this means exactly but with release so close we can expect details soon.

Activision also confirmed the game will have a brand new engine which you can see for yourself in the trailer below.
