How to Play With Friends on PS4, PS5, and Xbox One in ‘Outriders’ Console-PC Crossplay Guide
Outriders update 1.05 is now available on PC, PS4 and PS5, with Xbox to follow soon. Outriders will now allow complete crossplay between all major platforms where the game is available after the patch is fully installed.
At launch, crossplay was split between console and PC ecosystems, but now the entire player base will be able to enjoy People Can Fly’s new looter shooter. We’ll show you how to get the job done in this quick guide.
Outriders: How to Enable Full Crossplay
Crossplay between console and PC should be possible after the game’s newest update is fully installed. To utilize it, press the designated button on the lobby screen to bring up the settings menu. Make sure the toggle for “enable crossplay” is set to “on” on the gameplay tab.
Then, on the right-hand side of the lobby screen, press the “play with friends” button. There should be a section for “crossplay game codes” in the bottom-left corner of that menu. If you want to be the game’s host, click the “create your game code” option. You’ll be given an eight-digit code to share with friends who are playing on other platforms. They can enter the code in the Play With Friends menu by selecting the “join a game using code” option, as long as crossplay is enabled.

What are the limitations of Outriders crossplay?
While console and PC players can now enjoy Outriders crossplay, the feature does have some limitations. We’ve listed answers to some of the most common questions about the feature below.
Outriders crossplay does not support voice chat between platforms. You’ll need to use an external chat service or app to talk to friends playing on other platforms.
There isn’t full cross-progression in Outriders. Players can’t switch between PlayStation and Xbox or PC at will while keeping their character data intact.
It is possible, however, to transfer saves within the same console family. So, progress can be transferred between PS4 and PS5 as well. This is a brief summary.
