Is Omega Strikers Cross-Platform? Add Friends, Cross-Progression

After several delays, Omega Strikers has got its global launch, arriving on PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, and mobile platforms, with both an Android and iOS version now available.

Those aren't the only platforms planned for the game though. In fact, the game's delayed release was - in part - to get the game ported to both PlayStation and Xbox consoles. However, those hoping to go toe-to-toe in Oddysey Interactive's hockey/football/hero-shooter hybrid have to wait, owing to some last-minute "technical issues."

That aside, the Omega Strikers' availability on so many platforms has many wondering if the game offers cross-platform and cross-progression play, like that seen in Fortnite.

If you are one of those, the answers are below.

Does Omega Strikers support cross-platform?

Yes! Omega Strikers has been designed from the bottom up to support cross-play, with all platforms able to play with and against each other.

In fact, the developers feel that the game is one of the few on the market where those playing on a smartphone may be able to match the skills of those competing on a PC or console - claiming during the beta, that the developers had been secretly "dunking" on players using their smartphones when the game was only available on PC.

So, you can play with and against Omega Strikers players no matter the platform, but how do you do that?
