Came the launch of Remnant II this past summer, it was a surprise the quality it shipped in. “This is the best entry and has so much to offer for the price point. The replayability alone is worth the price of admission,” we wrote for our initial review of the game. And by the fall, both the sequel & the original Remnant game were added to Xbox Game Pass in November.

Additionally, there is even more to say about its DLC, ‘The Awakened King’. “Remnant 2’s The Awakened King DLC is simply more Remnant 2, for better or for worse. Much of it is just rehashed content from the base game, but the new enemies, bosses, and weapons are refreshing.” Now, a big update comes to the game across all systems. 

In a new blog post on Thursday, Gunfire Games reveals that cross-play support is now live for the game across its systems. “We’re thrilled to announce the addition of Crossplay, a highly anticipated feature in Remnant II! Now, players can unite against the Root, irrespective of their chosen platform. Team up with friends or discover open games across platforms and embark on your journey together,” the team writes.

“For console players, Crossplay is set to on by default.  This setting will affect your ability to see other games (including friend’s games) within the game if their Crossplay setting is set to “off”.   If you can’t see a friend’s game in-game, then confirm that you have matching Crossplay settings. The “off” setting will prevent you from joining another game that have Crossplay enabled.”

The team continues: “Settings on PC that use frame generation currently blocks the Epic Online Services Overlay, which is required for Crossplay functionality of joining friends in game. You can still accept invites using the Epic launcher prior to starting the game and join that way if you wish to use frame generation in game.”
