Gods & Goddesses! Cross-platform play for SMITE is coming to PlayStation 4! Beginning with the Odyssey: Underworld Update, players will be able to play SMITE and voice chat with their friends, regardless of their platform!
At launch, cross-progression (shared achievement & trophy progress) and cross-commerce (shared pool of purchased items across platforms) will not be supported. We are still working with our partners at Sony on this, and will provide more updates in the future.
Hi-Rez Studios is very excited to welcome PlayStation 4 to our cross-play community. This will lead to improved matchmaking for all of our players. Please keep an eye out on our official website and social media accounts for more information as we begin this exciting new adventure on the Battleground.
Q: What is cross-play?
A: Cross-play is the function to play the same game with other players across more than one platform.
Q: How do I enable cross-play?
A: To enable cross-play, go into the Options menu on your platform of choice and select the User Interface tab. When you reach this tab you will see an option for Enable Crossplay. If you would like to enable crossplay, you can select On, PS4 Only, or Console Only. On will permit you to crossplay with anyone regardless of their input method, across all platforms. PS4 or Console only will restrict matchmaking to players on those platforms.
Q: How do I add or invite my PC, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch friend to my party if I am on PlayStation?
A: To invite your friend to your party on another platform you will need to use the in-game Friends List. When you select this option go to the Friends tab and type the in-game name (for PC & Nintendo Switch) or gamertag (for Xbox One) of the player. Their username will show up on your screen and be available to add. To invite to a party, follow the same steps under the Party tab.
Q: Can I change my cross-play settings mid match?
A: No, you cannot. These settings will remain for the duration of your game.
