While cross-platform voice chat utilizing 1st party platforms/tech isn't that usual (e.g., the way Sea of Thieves allows Windows 10 and Xbox One players to communicate), this will mark the first time that a game allows for cross-platform voice chat utilizing 3rd party platforms. Slowly, but surely, those the doors are opening to allow folks to play with their friends regardless of the platform they're on.

Windows 10 Version of Final Fantasy 15 Will Support Cross-Platform PlayJason Love

The DLC was release this past Fall for the consoles and will be included automatically for the Windows version. Comrades is separate from the single-player campaign and allows groups of up to four players team up online to take on the various beasts and monsters within the kingdom of Lucis. It's kind of "Monster Hunter"-esque in its own way. While the title will be released via Steam and Origins as well, those versions will NOT support cross-platform play. That functionality is only for the version sold by Microsoft via the Microsoft Store.

The first video highlights some of the non-brawler aspects to the game, like using your brains to discover the mysteries lurking within the world.

The title was originally released as part of the "Xbox Play Anywhere" program, which meant that if you picked it up for the Xbox One or Windows 10, you automatically could play it on the other platform at no additional charge. While many of these titles also supported cross-platform play, curiously, Halo Wars 2 did not. That oversight will be corrected once the new update arrives sometime before the end of October (no specific date was given).

Designer board games are getting quite popular these days, to the point where we’re starting to see quality digital adaptations of them. Though co-op board games are a popular genre (check out Marc’s Tabletop Co-op series), surprisingly few of these games have been adapted from their cardboard forms. Mysterium bucks this trend, being a ...

Along with the PC couch co-op, the developer also stated that cross-platform play for the campaign and Horde mode would be supported between the PC and Xbox One versions. So, if you've got the Windows 10 edition and your best gaming buddy prefers the Xbox One, you can still take out those Swarm foes together. Finally, both Xbox One and PC will also feature offline LAN play, up to two players for the campaign and up to five for Horde. While that particular feature is fairly common for the PC, it's surprising to see it for the Xbox One.

Since its release last summer, Rocket League has blown up in a way that no one really saw coming. As of this past February, the title has reached a player-base of 12 million and grown in its eSports "phenom" status. It's even grown to a point where Microsoft has tossed out the idea of doing cross-platform with the PlayStation 4.

Aside from the preview trailer (see below), there aren't a whole lot of details about what all the action of the game entails. The developers put up a post on the European PS Blog that talks a little about things here and there, but those are more broad strokes than minute-to-minute gameplay. Still, there are a couple of ideas, like the massive Titan from which you can harvest resources and being able to transition to new worlds via portals, that look interesting enough to make it stand out from other titles in this genre. It also appears the game will pull in mechanics from some MMOs, like EVE Online, where you can do more than just build voxel contraptions; you can become a merchant or a craftsman-for-hire.

Super Dungeon Bros will not only allow you and up to four of your friends play online on the same platform of choice - either Xbox One, Windows 10, PC, PS4, or Mac- it will also let you play with friends on different platforms. Planning to buy it on the PS4 but your friend swears by the PC master race? No problem. Going to pick up Windows 10 (you early adopter you) and this game while your buddy is still putzing around on his Xbox One? That's fine! Picking it up on a Mac? ... well, good for you! I'm sure one of your pals will as well!

We all know Sonic has been about speed since his conception into gaming. His games are made to be played with his top speed always being achieved. But after we started to play the game for a bit, we soon realized weren’t receiving the same sort of satisfaction we got from older titles. We both agreed that there is still more polishing needed here before we see it as a clear contender for other Wii U titles.
