Yesterday, Destiny 2 developers Bungie unintentionally enabled the cross-play feature which was supposed to launch in coming fall 2021. Crossplay was said to arrive on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Google Stadia. The public access of crossplay accidentally went live alongside it’s new Season 14 update (Season of the Splicer). However, the public access of Destiny 2’s cross play will be removed a week later.
Bungie’s Lead Community Manager (@cozmo23) said in a tweet , “We are seeing reports that some players are able to get a sneak peek at Crossplay. This isn’t meant to be live yet and is not representative of the full experience. We will be implementing a fix to remove public access later this week, but in the meantime feel free to partake.”
If you are looking to try Destiny 2’s cross play before it is disabled, here are the steps for you to do so:
Here’s how to play Destiny 2 crossplay early:
- Launch Destiny 2 on PC but don’t log in – just leave the client leave it running at the ‘press to play’ screen.
- Launch Destiny 2 on the platform (Xbox, PlayStation or Stadia) you want to play crossplay with, and log into a character.
- The other player must now log into Steam and add you as a friend. Once done, that player should now see the console player within their Roster in-game and can opt to join them.
- Once the Steam player joins the console player from the in-game Roster, crossplay will begin.
