Rocket League has gone cross-platform following an announcement that promised as much last month.
The new Friends Update V1.58 has seen the feature emerge, with the game having become just the second PlayStation 4 cross-play title as part of the "PlayStation Cross-Play Beta Program."
Season 10 kicked off on Tuesday and is offering more than just the luxury of matchmaking across different consoles. An auto-generated RocketID allows players to search for and add friends to parties and clubs, also letting them view a list of 25 recent players met online.

The cross-platform update was something the Rocket League community was crying out for and the developers, Psyonix, were actually ready to roll it out a year ago.
Sony's intransigence over cross-play kept this from going live earlier but, thanks to the backlash from Fortnite players, they've since given in.
