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 isn’t a way to invite across platforms. Unfortunately, this leads to a dilemma where your only chance of playing with someone on a different console or platform is luck.
How to Crossplay With Friends in Chivalry 2
As explained in the intro, there isn’t a way to invite friends to your party currently. Developer Torn Banner Studios has a roadmap with plans to implement a server browser on consoles in patch 2. This will make it possible for people to select the same server regardless of the platform they’re on.
This eliminates any party invite issues as you can simply tell your friends what sever to join instead. The first planned patch on their Trello roadmap is to fix the current issues surrounding their party system. Many people playing Chivalry 2 with others have likely noticed problems trying to group up at the lobby screen.
It’s possible this may only be an issue on PC as the roadmap page mentions the Epic Games Store specifically. If you’ve been having trouble inviting friends on console as well, be sure to let us know in the comments. The one good thing is that the developer is aware of the issue and currently working on it. I’ve seen the developer respond on the Chivalry 2 subreddit regarding this as well.
This solution doesn’t seem to work for everyone, but I have a party fix guide for PC players. While it’s nice that we’re seeing more online games cross-platform, this seems to be a common issue with party systems. I wrote about the same problem back in April 2021 for the free-to-play WW2 game Enlisted. Hopefully as cross-platform/cross-play becomes more common, these systems will be ironed out.
