Dead by Daylight Cross-Play Now Available For PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch
Cross-play and cross-friends have arrived, cross-progression is on the way.
Yesterday I wrote up news about Behaviour Interactive, the developers of Dead by Daylight, teasing the possibility of cross-play heading to the game. It turns out, later in the day they went ahead and pushed an update that did indeed introduce cross-play.
The cross-play update is now live and to coincide with its release, a FAQ has been published to clear some things up. Players will be able to play Dead by Daylight with players between PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Those on mobile devices won’t get the feature, and when the game launches on Google Stadia, cross-play will be available at launch for that platform too.
It’s noted that there are no current plans for mouse and keyboard support, and in-game chat isn’t available for those on console. PC users will still have access to pre-game and post-game chat. Those wanting to communicate are encouraged to use a third-party application such as Discord.
For those wanting to add their friends from another platform, you head to the in-game friend’s list, click the Friend icon + and search for your friends Dead by Daylight ID.
At current, the game now supports cross-play and cross-friends, but as for cross-progression, Behaviour Interactive says it will reveal more information when the feature is ready and closer to launching the update.
Dead by Daylight is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
