Rocket League Gains Cross-Platform Multiplayer

Interesting news for PC and console gamers:

From Hope Corrigan at IGN:

It looks like the popular vehicular soccer game Rocket League is set to see cross-platform party support in 2018, building off of its cross-platform play functionality.

When asked on Twitter whether the feature was coming, the official support account for the game replied, saying "We’re actively working on cross-platform party support for a 2018 release."

Cross-platform play is great, but of more interest to mobile gamers is the question: "when will Rocket League finally come to mobile?". Rocket League has been ported to pretty much every console under the sun, but sadly, we're still waiting on this one last platform. We've reached out to the developers, and we're hoping for good news!

In the mean time, mobile gamers have the similarly-structured Turbo League, available for iOS and Android. It's not a bad game - it plays well with Gamevice, has real-time 3v3 online multiplayer, and even supports cross-platform play between iOS and Android. But still... it isn't the same as the real deal.

Of course, if you already own a PS4 or a Nvidia-powered gaming PC, you have other options. Thanks to the magic of streaming, PC gamers can use the excellent Moonlight app to play Rocket League with your Gamevice today, on iOS or Android. PS4 gamers can use R-Play to stream the real Rocket League direct to iOS.
