The multiplayer medieval warfare game Chivalry 2 is cross-platform, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to do right now. A common question right now is how to crossplay with friends since there still isn’t a way to invite across platforms.
The only way to play with friends across platforms originally was to get lucky while matchmaking. Unfortunately, the developer hasn’t implemented cross-platform parties yet at the time of updating this guide. Despite the developer mentioning it coming in several released patches, it sadly continues to get delayed. However, there is still a reliable way to play with others.
How to Crossplay With Friends in Chivalry 2
The best way to crossplay with others is by picking the server you want to play on. I haven’t tested the console server browser added in Content Update 5 (2.5), however. Assuming it works well, you should be able to pick a server that a friend on another platform is playing on.
If you’re playing Chivalry 2 on PC, the server browser has already been available for a while. So essentially, just make sure you let your friend know what server you pick so you can join up. One frustrating bit about this is you won’t see your friend easily in-game. Especially if you’re playing on a map with a ton of players.
This is why many players including myself are still eagerly awaiting the implementation of cross-platform parties. Hopefully, the developer can figure it out so you can enjoy the medieval action regardless of your platform. This is a common issue unfortunately across many games that are on multiple platforms like consoles and PC. I wrote about the same problem back in April 2021 for the free-to-play WW2 game Enlisted.
With that said, it’s worth mentioning that the Chivalry 2 developer ironed out some of the party issues plaguing PC at release. I remember it was almost impossible to play with friends without using the server browser. Fortunately, the party system is mostly functional now on PC.
