Fighting games live and die according to their communities, and cross-play significantly increases the wealth of players available online. To help you choose which PC and console games are likely to be more active, we’ve created a list of what you should play.
Free-to-play platform fighter Ubisoft Brawlhalla has enhanced cross-play across all of its platforms, including PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. Probably inspired by the Super Smash Bros. series, you fight and eliminate opponents from the ring. This goofy rioter has a choice of many original characters, but also includes WWE The Rock and John Cena, Ben 10’s Ben Tennyson, Adventure Time’s Finn, Hellboy and Rayman.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
Crossovers are still coming because Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid also supports cross-play. You will be able to play with friends on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC. This fighter was created on a mobile phone, but was retaliated by the fast system Marvel vs. Capcom. You will be able to play extravagant combos with characters from the entire Power Rangers series. In addition, Ryu and Chun-Li from Street Fighter, ranger costumes and everything have recently been implemented.
Microsoft’s leading franchise, Killer Instinct, can be played between Xbox and PC players (Steam and Windows 10). This game features an extremely sharp artistic style, a thrilling combo-heavy fight and an incredibly heavy metal soundtrack by Doom Mick Gordon. This game has not been officially supported by Microsoft for a long time, but it still has a healthy player base, probably due to its cross-play function. You can play it via Xbox Game Pass on both Xbox and PC with Definitive Edition, which comes with all DLC characters.
Street Fighter V
Capcom’s latest entry in the legendary Street Fighter series offers cross-play between PlayStation and PC platforms. In fact, it was one of the first major combat game studios to bring this feature. In this arcade title, you will have to learn the eccentricities of each character to succeed in battle. It can be slow and calculating, but in its systems you will find a deep fighting game experience in which you can bury your teeth. If you get the latest version of Street Fighter V, the arcade edition, you get 39 characters and then you have to buy the characters of season 5 to get the rest, which is a total of 44 characters when everything is said and done.
Mortal Kombat 11
Mortal Kombat 11 is further proof that the “cross-play” trend (yes, the developer Netherealm really called it that) will not disappear in the near future. You can ruin your friends’ fatalities if they have a PlayStation or Xbox. Unfortunately, you can’t compete with PC, Switch, and Google Stadium players, and it’s not expected to be folded since this writing. This feature is also quite limiting, even if you have a PlayStation or Xbox, because you can only fight in Kasual versus crossplay rooms.
