Call of Duty Modern Warfare lets players across different platforms play multiplayer matches together. Here’s how you set it up, if you haven’t figured it out already.
The newest Call of Duty title, Modern Warfare, finally released on October 25, marking the first installment in the popular sub-series for nearly a decade. While the excitement was clearly high – fans managed to flood the servers upon the midnight release – it hasn’t been wholly smooth sailing as Xbox players have reported issues with random crashes.
Despite that, though, it’s the first Call of Duty to feature cross-platform play, letting Xbox, PlayStation, and PC players fight out on the virtual battlefield. However, it does require a tiny bit of set-up. Don’t fret though, as we’ve got you covered.
First off, players need to have a Call of Duty account on the game’s official website. It’s made a little easier by having the option to sign-up directly with your respective platform’s account.
Once you’ve ticked that off and linked your gamertag with your CoD account, you need to head into Modern Warfare itself. From there, you want to head into settings, find account and then locate crossplay – which shouldn’t be too hard as it’s the first thing listed.
Toggle the options to enable both Crossplay and Crossplay Communication and you should be all set to go.
That’s not all though, as there are a few different additional options if you want to set-up your respective style of play.
You can play with a keyboard and mouse on console, and a controller on PC – and you can also choose which of those you want to play against. If you aren’t comfortable playing against keyboard and mouse on a console, don’t worry, just filter that out and you’ll be matched with fellow controller players.
There’s no complicated method if you want to play with friends on different platforms either, as you simply need to have their Call of Duty account added as a friend.
Once that’s all set-up, you’ll be all set to drop into a session of multiplayer and test your skills against everyone else in the new and classic game modes.
