Cross-play support finally comes to Paladins, Smite and Realm Royale on PS4

Hi-Rez Studios has announced that cross-play support will be coming to the PS4 versions of Paladins, Smite and Realm Royale.

The Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch versions of the games have all featured cross-play support since early this year, allowing gamers from each system to play together. But PS4 players were the odd ones out, presumably due to Sony’s strict cross-play network regulations. Other games have experienced similar difficulties when trying to get Sony to allow cross-play support, including Microsoft’s MineCraft (which remains unsuccessful), Psyonix’s Rocket League and Epic Games’s Fortnite.

Hi-Rez Studios has been working closely with Sony to implement cross-play and it seems those efforts have now paid off. Cross play is now live in Paladins, with Smite to support it from 17th September and Realm Royale from “early October”.

To celebrate the announcement, Hi-Rez Studios has released the below video… thing…
