‘Killer Instinct’ on Steam supports Xbox One and Windows 10 cross-play

by John_A

More and more games are supporting cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10 as part of Microsoft’s big “Better Together” summer push. But the newest Killer Instinct is opening the doors between those systems and Steam, allowing players on all three platforms to jam together.

While Killer Instinct hasn’t even been released on Steam, the latest update for the game opens it up to those playing on Valve’s platform. The feature might be toggled on and off after it first deploys, which is just the developers tinkering with it in the background to work out the kinks, according to an Xbox blog post. Even if they close off play for Steam users temporarily, they’ll keep it on for in-network (i.e. Xbox One and Windows 10) players.

It’s a neat move, and perhaps independent PC platforms are the right partners to start knocking down the walls separating siloed systems. If the recent Ark: Survival Evolved kerfuffle is anything to go by, Microsoft and Sony still won’t make nice and enable their fans to play together.
