Bloodhunt has officially debuted on PC and PlayStation 5 after months of early access, and gamers can now dive into the blood-soaked streets of Prague. However, as battle royale games thrive when played with friends, Bloodhunt’s developers made sure that gamers from other platforms can play collaboratively.
In essence, it means that Bloodhunt supports crossplay. So players on PlayStation 5 and PC can participate in the same matches. However, there is one big limitation.
While bloodsuckers from both platforms can participate in matches, only those from the same platform can join the same squad in the lobby. Because the Elysium, Bloodhunt’s pre-game lobbies, are platform-specific, you’ll have to rely on luck to meet someone with other gaming hardware.
Regrettably, this means that groups divided by the platform may only compete against one another and cannot play as a team.
Console fans who were expecting to team up with their PC friends will be disappointed, as developer Sharkmob has yet to clarify if support will be added later.
Here’s how to enable crossplay in Bloodhunt
The good news is that crossplay is enabled by default and cannot be turned off if you’re playing Bloodhunt on PC. As a result, any game you play will include PC and PS5 players.
In order to stay “compliant with the technical regulations and requirements,” those who own the PlayStation 5 version can disable crossplay.
To do this, simply go to the Options Menu and change the setting to your liking if you want to allow or disable crossplay in Bloodhunt.
The creators have, however, warned gamers against tinkering with the settings. “Please bear in mind that disabling crossplay may result in delayed matchmaking speeds,” they wrote on the official website. As a result, we strongly advise you to play with crossplay enabled. “
