Evil Dead: The Game crossplay

The Deadite-infested world of Evil Dead: The Game is best tackled with friends, but can players on other platforms join the gory fun? Here’s everything we know about Evil Dead: The Game crossplay on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC.

Evil Dead: The Game is an absolute dream come true for anyone familiar with Sam Raimi’s horror franchise, pitting Ash Williams and co. against the Army of Darkness like never before. As we’ve mentioned in our extensive Evil Dead: The Game review, fans of the franchise will find tons to love here, as will people unfamiliar with the horror icon.

All of the series’ most iconic weapons and characters are here, with a healthy dose of Dead by Daylight thrown to make for an asymmetrical multiplayer experience that reads like a love letter to long-time fans. While it can be enjoyed solo, ripping through Deadites is far more enjoyable with friends, meaning many players are wondering if crossplay is supported.

How to use crossplay on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC & Switch

There are a series of very simple steps you will need to ensure are completed before you are fully able to use crossplay for the Evil Dead: The Game.

To use the game’s crossplay, ensure the following instructions are met:

  1. Start up Evil Dead: The Game
  2. Head into the game’s settings
  3. Go to the crossplay setting and make sure it is set to enabled
  4. If this option isn’t switched on, then matchmaking will only search for fellow horror fans playing on your platform

Since players on different consoles or on PC won’t be able to invite others using their platform-specific friends list, Evil Dead: The Game offers a similar in-game friends list they can access. In titles like Dead by Daylight, each user is proved with a unique player ID that can be used to add and invite them.
