Deep Rock Galactic - Crossplay in 2023 Explained

In this article we discuss crossplay and cross platform in DRG in 2023. Find out all about it.

Deep Rock Galactic is a co-op game that allows you and your friends to take on the role of dwarves trying to dig up valuable resources from dangerous locations. Over the years, this title has gained huge popularity and a large number of fans. Due to its multiplayer nature, it is of course best played with friends. This is why many gamers are curious to see if there is crossplay and cross platform in DRG in 2023.

Is Deep Rock Galactic cross platform PS4 and Xbox

A lot of people ask whether Deep Rock Galactic is cross platform for PS4 and Xbox consoles. The answer varies depending on what you have in mind.

DRG is a cross-platform game because it has been released on various devices. You can currently play the title on PS4, PS5, PC, XOne, XSX and Steam Deck (so quite a wide choice). Unfortunately, being able to play on different platforms does not automatically mean that the production has a crossplay option. That is a completely different issue.

Is there crossplay in DRG in 2023

Crossplay is the ability to play together with people who own the game on different hardware. It is therefore not the same as cross platform. You must remember that.

In a way, there is crossplay in DRG, because if you have purchased the game through the Microsoft Store, PC and Xbox console owners can play together. Unfortunately, the title does not offer true support for this feature, so PlayStation players will not play with users of other platforms.

The above is also true for PC owners and versions of the game purchased from different shops. If you and your friends have purchased DRG from the Microsoft Store and Steam, you will not be able to play with each other - these versions are incompatible.

One consolation may be that Deep Rock Galactic is a cross-gen game. This means that PS4 owners can play with PS5 users.

The above is probably dictated by the fact that DRG co-op is closely linked to the multiplayer infrastructure of each individual device. Combining them would require a lot of resources.
