FIFA fans can finally play together no matter what console they use – sort of.
Makers EA is publicly testing crossplay support for the game for the first time, something players have been requesting for years.
But there is a small catch.
First off, it’s only accessible to users with a PS5, Xbox Series X/S, or Google Stadia.
And second, you can only compete in online seasons and online friendlies.
So no Ultimate Matches at the moment – and no word on if it will launch at a later date.
“We’re confident that the game data and feedback we’re getting from these two modes will help inform how crossplay might be further implemented in future titles,” EA said.
A button prompt will appear on your console’s main Fifa 22 screen, allowing you to control crossplay.
It will be on by default.
You can also enable – or disable – it by going to the matchmaking options settings.
Once set up, you can search for your friend by their platform or their EA username.
EA says the new feature will appear in the “near future”.
It also wants user feedback to help perfect the idea for future Fifa releases – possibly as early as Fifa 23, which has long been rumoured.
All of this comes at a great time for Fifa as the game was recently added to PS Plus for free.
