After much anticipation, fans finally saw the arrival of a new Dungeons & Dragons title. Looking at the success of the previous title, Baldur’s Gate, it was already challenging for Dungeons & Dragons developers to bring a game, that can match the hype. After much anticipation came out Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance. This game included the latest consoles as well. As a result, we get to see Dungeons & Dragons in Microsoft Windows (PC,) the Xbox One, the Xbox Series X|S. It also includes the Sony PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
With the addition of modern consoles comes a common question. Does Dark Alliance support crossplay? Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance does support crossplay, although we only get to see this between Xbox and PC. In the case of PlayStation, gamers can only crossplay between generations together, so that means PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players can join a game together. But they can not crossplay with gamers of other platforms. As of now, there has been no statement regarding if PlayStation will ever get to enjoy a cross-platform experience with Xbox or PC gamers. Along with this, PS4 and PS5 players are not able to make a cross-gen session. How are the developers working on this problem? Read this article, as we share all the details regarding this news.
