Turtle Rock Studios’ new game Back 4 Blood is the new co-op zombie survival game akin to Left 4 Dead. Just like that game, being able to team up with your friends to slaughter the undead is the most fun you can get out of the game. When planning what system to get the game for, it is important to know if the title supports cross-play so that you know if there will be a console obstacle between you and your friends. This guide will tell you if Back 4 Blood supports cross-play.
Does Back 4 Blood Support Cross-Play?
The simple answer is yes, Back 4 Blood does support cross-play. You can play through the game’s zombie-slaying campaign with your friends across any system that they play on. You might still be wondering how to get it to work still, however. I can help by explaining how to enable cross-play in Back 4 Blood. The good news is that cross-play begins enabled when you boot up the game, so you should be able to invite your friends to your game with no problem. If it isn’t working, you might have disabled the feature by accident.
To turn cross-play back on, you will want to pull up the menu and head over to the “Play” tab. Here you will be able to join campaigns, manage your party, and select what type of game mode you want to play. Above all of that, however, it should tell you whether you have cross-play enabled or not. To change it, go down to the “Preferences” button at the bottom of the options and it will bring up three options: Private Campaign Lobby, Voice Preference, and Crossplay. Flip that last one on and you should be able to play with your friends across the Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
Along with being able to play with friends across different systems, Back 4 Blood also utilizes cross-progression. That means that as long as your accounts are linked you will be able to carry over your stats no matter what platform you play on.
Back 4 Blood is available now on box Series X/ S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
