The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Crossplay Explained

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre features crossplay across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Unlike some other games, PC crossplay also includes both the Steam and Windows versions. Things work differently with Sony and Microsoft’s last-gen consoles, though. Neither the PlayStation 4 nor the Xbox One include any kind of crossplay. That means Xbox One players can only matchmake with other Xbox One players. Likewise, PlayStation 4 owners only matchmake with other players on PS4.

By default, crossplay in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is enabled across all platforms that support it. As of the time of writing, there are a few things to make note of:

  • Crossplay can only be disabled by PC users.
  • Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 owners can’t opt out of matchmaking with other platforms.
  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre doesn’t feature a crossplay friends list.
    • You can’t add friends across different platforms within the game itself.

Any coordination must be handled through other means of communication, such as Discord or social media. However, crossplay parties can be created on the main menu.

How to Create Crossplay Lobbies in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

  • Go to the main menu.
  • Press the options button on a PlayStation controller; press the menu button on an Xbox controller; or press the “C” key on mouse and keyboard.
  • This presents you with the option to create or join a party.
  • Creating a party generates a game session code.
  • Players on other platforms must select the “join party” option to input the game session code.

This keeps all players within the same party until the session ends. If the party is broken up or disbanded, a new code will be generated upon creating a new party. If you happen to be teaming up with someone on the same platform, the generated code is unnecessary. In such cases, you can simply invite them directly.

And that’s crossplay explained in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Now that you know how it works, you’ll be wreaking havok or escaping with your friends in no time.
