The Forest is one of the best survival horror games developed by Endnight games back in 2018. This game is available for multiple platforms such as Playstation 4, Windows 10, and Android devices as well. It also supports multiplayer gaming. However, we have received a lot of queries regarding users who want to know whether this game is cross-platform or not?
If a game supports cross-platform play then it means that the game has binary compatible files. In simple words, cross-platform compatibility means you can easily play with other platform users and switch from your gaming platform to another one without any hassle.
So if you are looking for an answer, then this article will be of great help. Let’s find out if The Forest is cross-platform or not.
Xbox and PS4
First of all, let’s talk about Xbox and PS4 users.
Well, unfortunately, this game does not allow cross-playing among Xbox and PS4 game consoles. The main reason why is because The Forest is not available on Xbox game consoles yet. Even if the game was available for Xbox, still you won’t be able to play together with your friends.
Hence, if your friend has an Xbox, and you own a PS4, you won’t be able to play with each other.
Multiplayer Compatibility on PS4
Well, the good thing about this game is that you can play it with your friends on PS4. The Forest offers a multiplayer game feature that allows users to join or host different games on PS4.
Another good feature of the PS4 is that the game allows more than 4 players on PS4 for a multiplayer experience. However, this game is not cross-platform and you have to make sure that your friend is also playing on a PlayStation 4 to fully enjoy it.
PS4 and PS5
When it comes to crossplay between PS4 and PS5, The Forest provides cross-platform support.
That means if you have a PS4 and your friend owns a PS5, both of you can play this game together. The game is however available for PS4, but it will run smoothly on your PS5 as well. You can purchase it from the Playstation store.
PC and PS4
Unfortunately, PC players and PS4 players cannot play together. But The Forest supports a multiplayer experience on a PC with more than 8 players. However, for that purpose, you have to make sure your friends are also playing on a PC. If one of them owns a PS4, then you guys won’t be able to play together.
This sounds quite disappointing however the developers have provided us with some hope. The Forest developers mentioned that there will be another part of this game, arriving soon (probably a sequel). So until its sequel arrives, we can only hope that it comes with cross-platform support.
