If you and your friends play on different platforms, you need to check if crossplay is enabled. It is likely that you’ll have it available by default, but we still recommend to check.

To do this, go to Features, then to Settings, and at the bottom of the list you will find the crossplay option.

Now go to the MyCareer tab to get into the city. Here you need to press the right stick button (R3 for PS5 and RSB for Xbox Series X|S) to open the list of everyone who is online.

Next, press R1 or RB, depending on your console, to go to the Friends tab. You can search for them by name to add them to your friends list or invite them to your squad.

After that, you can play together in any mode.

How does crossplay work?

Crossplay is only supported between PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. This means that owners of past-gen consoles, PCs, and Nintendo Switch can play only with users of the same platforms.

The game also supports cross-progression, but it is limited as it works only for the same console family. That is, all your progress and purchases will be saved if you, for example, switch from PS4 to PS5 or from Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S.

Unfortunately, the game does not have a full-fledged cross-progression that would allow you to play on the same account on PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
