Hi-Rez Studios, the makers of Paladins, have detailed the additions for the upcoming Version 2.02 update for Nintendo Switch.
First, the studio has confirmed cross platform play will be coming to the Nintendo Switch version of Paladins in update 2.02. This will allow players across Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch to play with each other.
Other features that will be introduced in this update include voice chat for all players regardless of platform, matchmaking by input type regardless of platform, and fully functional cross friends list. As Hi-Rez Studios does not wish to rush the update, there’s no word on when it’s coming yet.
Check out the full details below.
It’s been so exciting to pioneer cross-progression and cross-play, and we’ve made amazing progress so far. We’re so excited to get this feature live and out to as many players as possible, but we don’t want to rush it.
In 2019, we’re more focused on polish than ever before. We want to do it right, not do it quick, and we’re going to need a little more time to properly execute this massive leap forward.
We want to make sure that we’re able to introduce features that you’ve requested and will make cross-play the best experience it can be, including:
- Voice chat for every player on your team, regardless of platform
- Matchmaking by input type, regardless of platform
- Keyboard and mouse support for Xbox
- Fully functional cross friends list
We expect cross-play across Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch to release with all of these features in Update 2.02. We’re also targeting a 2.02 release for cross-progression across PC and Xbox.
Thanks so much for your patience and support–we know these features will be worth the wait!
