Gunfire Games’ soulslike shooter Remnant 2 officially supports crossplay between its PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S versions now. Patch 408,516, which was published on February 29, 2024, added the highly requested feature to the title, which allows players to join hands regardless of their gaming platform of choice.

Crossplay is the default option on consoles going forward and the developers noted that users won’t be able to see lobbies created by players who turned the feature off. “If you can't see a friend’s game in-game, then confirm that you have matching Crossplay settings,” the developer advised.

Until March 5, 2024, the Aberration Domination event in Remnant 2 allows players to collect an item type called Corrupted Shards, which can be exchanged for corrupted versions of special weapons.

You can check out the rest of the Remnant 2 update 408,516 patch notes below.
