Farming Simulator 22 is a virtual world of virtual machines and virtual crops to harvest. Its realistic farming experience and engaging gameplay can even have your friends join in. But can they join in if they are on a different platform?
Is Farming Simulator 22 Cross-platform?
Farming Simulator 22 is cross-platform between various platforms such as PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC, Mac or the Google Stadia. It does not matter you can play from any platform and also be able to team up with friends and play together. On Farming Simulator 22, players from any of the aforementioned platforms can easily mix and match with each other.
To enable cross-play in Farming Simulator 22, just toggle on “Allow cross-play” when you’re creating a server to host.
The maximum number to join a server is 16 on a PC. On the console, it is 5 but you can play as long as the host is playing.
If you have a big friend group with more than 5 people, one person should pick up Farming Simulator 22 on a PC.
Players must own the same DLC and mods as the server host to play crossplay. So if you join someone’s server, make sure you have the same DLC content as them or you will not be able to join in.
Farming Simulator 22 does not feature cross-save as it is the host that is the only one making progress. If you join his server, you’re just enjoying some multiplayer time on someone else’s server.
If you do not want to play in crossplay, you can do this through filters to avoid joining cross-platform servers. You can also keep other platforms from joining your server.
The game also has cross-platform voice chat. without worrying about their chosen platform. Though text chat is exclusive to PC and Mac, console players will be able to read text messages and respond vocally or through in-game actions.
Though the game has gained popularity it is not without its issues. Many players have faced issues with multiplayer functionality. They have encountered errors like “could not connect to the server.”
But we think the developers will soon solve the issue thus ensuring a smooth online multiplayer experience for players to fully enjoy the benefits of crossplay.
