Crossplay

MasterMaster Member Posts: 10,205

Since this topic just came up again, Id like to know what the community thinks about this feature.

Would you like to see the introduction of crossplay (with the ability to disable it, apparently necessary for xbox folks)

Feel free to explain why in the thread

    Crossplay would be great! It would presumably help out with lobby timing and increase communication amongst the community! The only issue is that Bill wouldn’t be allowed on Consoles due to Valve’s legal handling of the character in the game, though if BHVR and Valve could come to an agreement, I’m sure Crossplay could also come with our beloved chain smoking veteran! 😄

    I’d like a cross play very much so, only after the new engine and optimization tweaks though, Bc of the frame rate difference rn between console and pc it would be game breaking to do it before.

    I don't see any reason to say no as long as people can disable it.

    I want to see that godlike survivors who can 'easily' avoid nurses to see PC nurses. As a survivor main I am desperate to know the tricks from them :)

    I would be ok with crossplay, but not Console-PC

  • Kamikaze_RoseKamikaze_Rose Member Posts: 232

    Crossplay would be fine. Anyone saying, "Console killers would get wrecked by PC survivors" has clearly never played on PC with a controller. It all depends on what you're more used to -- controller or K&M.

    Just make it PC-Xbox-Switch (Sony is not very likely to allow it). Make it possible to have console only (Xbox-Switch) and add a kb+m support for Xbox.

    When using kb+m on Xbox, you are allowed to play with PC players and other kb+m Xbox players only.

    Make crossplay pls

    I'd love a bigger, more connected community. We could all be mad at each other together 😄

    @Kamikaze_Rose I don't like the idea of Console-PC crossplay because console is not optimized at all

  • popolespopoles Member Posts: 810

    Did you read the optimization message? 60FPS comes to console before dedicated servers.

  • GorgoniaGorgonia Member Posts: 1,111

    If they want people on Switch to stick to the game, they will need crossplay. Not everyone owns a Switch, and many who do are younger people whose parents won’t buy a game like dbd. Lobbies might be a bit lonely over there

  • MasterMaster Member Posts: 10,205

    @not_Queen

    It would also be interesting what BHVRs standpoint is on crossplay. Are you even considering this now that the console versions are supposed to be more stable?

  • CarpemortumCarpemortum Member Posts: 4,511

    Unfortunately, that's not the case as consoles run at a lower fps and have more drops and spikes when things happen. It's not just using the controller in this instance, like fortnite, but how the game actually runs.

  • MasterMaster Member Posts: 10,205

    BHVR just made a post that they are aiming for 60 fps on consoles very soon,so that shouldnt be a deal

  • ModernFableModernFable Member Posts: 755

    Optimization and Dedicated Servers are the biggest things that need to happen

    But after that, Cross Play & Progression would be very welcome features.

  • Condorloco_26Condorloco_26 Member Posts: 1,714

    I think it would be great, lobby times would be shorter and the challenge would be raised for us console players facing veteran PC players.

  • Condorloco_26Condorloco_26 Member Posts: 1,714

    Does your link work correctly? I'm not getting it to work for some reason.

  • TarveshTarvesh Member Posts: 762

    Hell yes I want crossplay! Especially with DBD coming to the Switch!

    Just let me be able to access the same account across all platforms and I’m happy.

  • MasterMaster Member Posts: 10,205

    There could be the possibility that if you enable cross platform on PC, then you cant select Bill. Sure would not be optimal, but since survivors are only skins anyway.....

  • NMCKENMCKE Member Posts: 7,294

    This isn't a bad idea to be honest since really there isn't a difference between K&M and controller.

  • GemGem Member Posts: 37

    I'd love to be playing against the entire community. The only issue I'd see is aren't consoles on older patches/get our patch later? I guess if you could disable crossplay until we're on the same patch it'd still work.

  • TheluckyboiTheluckyboi Member Posts: 1,113

    Just, please dont add it when the game is already dying

    Your royal highness, this would be an amazing opportunity to group the community together and as a plus, it adds more variety in ranks (which will also solve queues to an extent).

  • BBQnDemogorgonBBQnDemogorgon Member Posts: 3,586

    If it was added the playerbase would reach its peak...

  • Dolphin9192Dolphin9192 Member Posts: 129

    If console framerate was fixed I would like to see it happen, but not until then.

  • twistedmonkeytwistedmonkey Member, Trusted Posts: 4,016

    I would say atm consoles yes definately but versus pc no.

    Right now killers are already considered weak, a pc survivor could easily run one around moreso than pc killers.

    If the devs added keyboard and mouse support for consoles well I would then say yes to all.

  • SadonicShadowSadonicShadow Member Posts: 1,146

    Crossplay would honestly be amazing and healthy for the DBD community as a whole. Merging the segmented community into one massive pool of players would only benefit this game long term. However i am only for crossplay once the baseline consoles are optimized to run at 60FPS. If there remains a huge disparity in performance levels it will give the PC community an unfair advantage over the console players. Playing nurse with mouse and keyboard at 120FPS is a completely different game vs the exercise in frustration that is console nurse at 30fps.

  • PhantomMask20763PhantomMask20763 Member Posts: 5,182

    Crossplay would be awesome!!! It would be the whole community playing together an would overall be healthy for the game. It would also help out the switch players since I'm going to assume the playerbase is going to be smaller there. It would just bee great for que times and matchaking in general. We should get optimization first though because I don't want the fps to get in the way.
