Is NHL 24 cross-platform?

Yes, NHL 24 does support cross-platform play however crossplay is limited in the game.

While the feature is available across every platform including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X, you will only be able to play with friends on the same generation consoles. So PS5 and Xbox Series S/X owners can play together, and PS4 and Xbox One players can enjoy the game with each other.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to enjoy crossplay across generations, so if you’ve got a PS5 you won’t be able to play with a friend who has a PS4.

Crossplay game modes

As well as generational limitations, crossplay is only available in a couple of specific modes in NHL 24. These are:

  • Hockey Ultimate Team
  • World of Chel

Fans of Online Versus will still have to wait for the feature to get added to their favorite game mode.
