Call of Duty: Modern Warfare cross-play details finally revealed
The upcoming soft reboot for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches later this year and cross-play details have finally been revealed.
Activision has provided details about how the beta – which will run this weekend – will include cross-play between PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Previously it had been believed that PC gamers would suffer when playing with people on other platforms because the mouse and keyboard setup is input-based.
However, Activision has revealed that the mouse and keyboard setup will be supported on console as well. This means PC gamers playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare should no longer be at a disadvantage.
For those wanting to play the game with friends on other platforms you will first need to create a Call of Duty account. This will then enable unrestricted cross-platform friends lists and parties.
Every multiplayer mode except for ranked play or competitive tournaments will be available for cross-play along with voice chat being built in.
The lobby screens will also now indicate the different platforms and control schemes, allowing you to see who is using what hardware. You can then choose whether to match against people using the same kit, or a universal lobby where controllers and mice are both used.
The cross-platform open beta will go live on September 20 to give fans a flavour of what’s to come when the game fully launches on October 25.
