Killer Instinct on Steam to support cross-play with Windows 10 and Xbox One
Big news for Killer Instinct players on PC as the latest Content Update shares the confirmation that Killer Instinct players on Xbox One or Windows 10 will be able to play cross-network with players on Steam, as well.
There is one small caveat, though. the developer will be testing this new feature, in order to make sure all the kinks are worked out in a live environment. So the option will always shows on the menus, but then there will be times where that menu item is turned off, and seemingly missing.
This feature being turned on/off will have 0 impact on player’s ability to play KI in-network, or between Xbox & Windows 10 players.
Read below what community manager Rukari “rukizzel” Austin revealed today in the KI forums:
“When you download the latest Killer Instinct Content Update, if you haven’t done so already, you’ll undoubtedly notice something peculiar, so we wanted to give you a heads up at what’s to come before you spotted it in the wild. Tucked away in this CU is a switch that will enable certain feature you’ve all been clamoring for, and that feature is indeed cross-play!” he wrote.
“Yes, this is your confirmation that Killer Instinct players on Xbox One or Windows 10 will be able to play cross-network with players on Steam, as well, and we’re super excited to be able to bring that feature to you when KI launches on Steam in the coming weeks.”
Because the option is still being tested, it may not always be accessible, but that “will have zero impact on your ability to play KI in-network, or between Xbox and Windows 10 players,” Austin added.”
