Psyonix announced today that Rocket League will have an update released on February 19 that adds the ability to have cross-play friends lists.
Cross-platform play between PC, Switch, and Xbox One has been a feature since April 2018. Cross-play support was added for PS4 last month, but the support only extended to matchmaking. Now, you will also be able to create a friends list and parties across platforms.
According to Psyonix:
The Friends Update will bring a new Friends List to the main menu. Here, you’ll be able to see the online status of all of your Rocket
League friendsregardless of their platform. The Friends List is split into four tabs: Friends, RocketID, Recent Players, and Alerts.
The Friends Tab will display your friends on your current platform. The RocketID Tab will show your online friends on all other platforms. After the update, every player will be auto-assigned a RocketID
,whichwill be your username followed by four randomly-generated numbers. You may change the word portion of your RocketID at any time.
The Recent Players tab conveniently shows players you were recently matched up with or against. If you had solid team chemistry with a randomly-matched player, you can easily send that player a Friend Request from the Recent Players tab if they are on a different platform.
Finally, the Alerts tab will house all of your player interactions like Friend Requests, Party Invites, and Club Invites. Yes, Clubs are now Cross-Platform, too!
