For starters, Crackdown 3 is an Xbox One exclusive, meaning you won’t be able to buy it on PS4 (or Nintendo Switch for that matter), but since it also released on Windows PC the question still applies.

The great news is that yes, Crackdown 3 does support cross-platform play between PC and Xbox One, meaning it’s really easy to set up a co-op game with friends no matter what system they choose to buy the game on. In case that wasn’t clear enough, if you play on Xbox One and your friend is on PC, you can still play together in Crackdown 3. This is made possible thanks to Microsoft’s Play Anywhere service which aims to spread the Xbox interface across all of their devices and let players join together regardless of their preference for platform.

If you have picked it up you’ll now be ready to hop into a game with your friends and start recovering the city together, mostly via the medium of explosions.
