A new patch for Hover: Revolt of Gamers has added cross platform play support on the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
Players on Nintendo Switch can now enjoy playing against other players in the PC and Xbox One versions. Unfortunately no cross platform play with PS4 as Sony doesn’t allow that kind of stuff to happen.
