Crossplay multiplayer is one of the most highly requested features in Codemasters’ F1 series. After a delay of several months and numerous beta trials, crossplay has finally arrived in F1 22, allowing players to race together on multiple platforms for the first time ever in the series. But before you can use this highly requested feature, you need to turn it on. Here’s how to enable crossplay in f1 22.
What is crossplay?
Crossplay enables players to compete online across multiple platforms. For example, PlayStation players can compete online with Xbox players and vice versa, or PC players can compete with console players and vice versa.
In F1 22, crossplay is available in Social Race and Two-Player Career modes and is supported on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. This means you can race with other players online in F1 22 regardless of the platform they are playing on.
How to enable crossplay in F1 22
To use F1 22 crossplay, you need to turn it on. By default, crossplay is switched off. From the main menu, select Game Options and go to Settings. Scroll to the far right, and you’ll find the setting for Crossplay. Select this option to toggle Crossplay on or off.
With cross-play enabled, you can join sessions across all platforms when selecting Social Race. You can also invite players from other platforms if they also have crossplay enabled.
Pending friend requests or session invites are accessed in Friends Hub. Here, you can also search for and add friends or players you recently raced against. To access Friends Hub from the Main Menu, click the left thumbstick (or F10 on a keyboard) and select the Friends Option.
If you want to invite a player to your lobby from another platform when hosting a session, head to the Invite Friends option in the lobby and invite them from there.
Disabling crossplay will match you with other players in your console family such as PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
Crossplay was originally supposed to be available in F1 22 at launch but was delayed due to the development team being based in Ukraine amid the ongoing war with Russia.
