Is Lords of the Fallen crossplay? The burden of being the Dark Crusader need not be one you take on alone, and we know co-op is possible. However, whether you can play the reboot of this Soulslike series with friends who own the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S version is another problem entirely.

We already know from the Lords of the Fallen Steam page that playing Lords of the Fallen multiplayer is possible, allowing for invading other players’ games or defending against would-be aggressors.

Does Lords of the Fallen have crossplay?

The good news is that Lords of the Fallen has crossplay on PC with PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S players. However, the bad news is that PlayStation and Xbox players cannot play Lords of the Fallen with each other.

This information was revealed in a post on the Lords of the Fallen official website, in which lead network multiplayer programmer David Romanowski addressed some key questions. In addition to confirming the situation regarding Xbox and PlayStation players being unable to play with each other, he also says that cross-progression will also not be available as this would require players to create Hexworks Accounts. This is an extra step the team wanted to avoid.

Romanowski also mentions that co-op partners can collect items dropped by enemies, but world loot, including any objects in chests or hidden in the environment, will not be accessible. Another critical factor is that your story will not progress if you join another player’s game, as it’s tied to your save.
