Some of the Need for Speed games are cross platform, and that is a good thing for anyone who likes to play with friends who are on different consoles. Can you switch between playing on the Xbox One to the PS4? The good news is that most of the NFS games are available on PlayStation, Xbox, and Microsoft (for all you PC gamers out there).
Has Ghost Games done that with Need for Speed Rivals? Is Need for Speed Rivals cross platform, or are you stuck playing it on just one platform? What’s more, is cross play available so that you can race with your friends who are on different platforms?
Is Need for Speed Rivals cross platform?
Okay, you’re switching from Xbox to PlayStation and are wondering, “Is Need for Speed Rivals cross platform?” There is some good news for you: Need for Speed Rivals is indeed cross-platform. It is available for Windows PC, PlayStation 3 and 4, and Xbox 360 and One.
What’s more, this is the very first cross platform next-gen game to attain a native 1080p across both the Xbox One and the PS4. This set the bar high for other games being released at that time.
Which platforms can you play on?
You can play on the PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC. Take note that, across all platforms, game developers aimed to achieve 30 FPS (frames per second) instead of 60 FPS due to the AllDrive multi-player online feature.
Note that the Nintendo Switch is absent.
Is cross play available?
Unfortunately, cross play is not available in Need for Speed Rivals. You can only play in AllDrive with other players who are using the same platform, from the same generation. If you’re playing from a PS4, you cannot play in AllDrive with your friend who is on an Xbox One. You also cannot play with a friend who is on a PC or even on the PS3.
Is Need for Speed Rivals open world?
While thinking about “Is Need For Speed Rivals cross platform?” it is important to note that the game does have some open world capabilities. You can go into AllDrive and explore the roads of Redview County.
The fun of playing Rivals
Need for Speed Rivals is a fun racing game that you can play with others or by yourself. While it is cross platform, it isn’t cross play. AllDrive does give you an online method for playing with friends on the same console type, and you do get to do some exploration. The main, single player story is pretty engaging, too.
