Cross-Platform Parties

At current, we are now evaluating all available cross-platform services at our disposal to better understand which will meet our needs. In parallel to this, our engineers have begun early evaluations with reviewing the level of effort required for such a technical endeavour. In addition to the engineering work, there will be a fair amount of UI and design tasking to be completed as well.

As we are in the early stages of development for this feature, it’s difficult to predict a firm timeline. With that said, when our team has updates to share on the progress of cross-platform parties, we will absolutely do so.

Lastly, along with cross-platform parties, the addition of specifically PS4-PS5 cross-generation parties continues to remain an equally top priority for our studio. Once we have firm details on a timeline for this, we’ll share with everyone.

Console-specific issues

  • Xbox One: Customization/weapons are loading in late

  • Playstation 4: Players may see themselves joining a party of 5 or more people when accepting invites to a full party

  • Xbox One, Playstation 4: Players on the Arena podium may not animate properly

Gameplay

  • Bots aren’t disarmed at end of match if they lose

  • Players that switch or are kicked to spectate may not be able to rejoin the match in FFA and Brawl if player counts are too high

  • The brotherhood of Galencourt Monks have decided to sport some new headwear. No one has told them yet that the monk hoods look better…for fear of a heavy mace to the face.

UI

  • Alt attack rebinds don’t work specifically on Tournament Grounds

  • Some keys can’t be bound as expected

  • Rebinding certain keys will make “Get Up” and “Special Item” binds appear to use controller binds

  • Some languages have some overlapping UI

  • ”Players Left” UI in offline mode may not appear consistently

Maps

  • Rudhelm Siege – Unfolded ramps may hitter players in the unfolded section of the ramp

Visual

  • Dx12 VRS can cause visual artifacting on some maps (Tournament Grounds, for example)
