Turtle Rock Studios’ new game Back 4 Blood is the new co-op zombie survival game akin to Left 4 Dead. Just like that game, being able to team up with your friends to slaughter the undead is the most fun you can get out of the game. When planning what system to get the game for, it is important to know if the title supports cross-play so that you know if there will be a console obstacle between you and your friends. This guide will tell you if Back 4 Blood supports cross-play.
The good news is that yes, there is cross-play compatibility in Back 4 Blood. This means that if you’re playing on PC, you can also play with other players on Xbox and PlayStation consoles, too.
How to play with friends in Back 4 Blood
Thankfully, crossplay is automatically enabled, so you won’t need to search the in-game UI for a way to turn it on.
When you’ve decided who your other three teammates are, simply:
Go to the main menu.
Select the “Social” tab.
Add your friends under the “Back 4 Blood friends” option.
Any Xbox friends you have that play the game have automatically been added under “Xbox Friends.” This also applies to people who are running the game via the Xbox Game Pass.
