While the game itself had a smooth launch, some players are still wondering how they can play with their best pals on other consoles. The settings can be a bit tricky to find, so follow along. Everybody on all consoles should be staving off death in Evil Dead: The Game in just a couple of clicks.
From the initial screen, go to settings. From there, scroll to the menu called “Game.” The checkbox for crossplay should be the very top line. If it’s unchecked, check it and this should allow crossplay. Make sure everyone who intends to play in the game has this option checked.

Many gamers have this enabled by default, but sometimes console settings will have this disabled so it’s best to start here if there is an issue. Gamers were given a good amount of knowledge about the game before its release and crossplay is always a huge selling point.
There are a few things to try if the game still isn’t finding players on other consoles. The first and most simple issue is that all participating players must complete the tutorial before being listed as eligible. Have everyone interested in gaming together get this out of the way before doing any game modes.
Sometimes the consoles themselves have crossplay disabled. The process is different across all three, but it’s worth checking. Changing the setting from “block” to “allow” should be the final piece in ensuring online gaming together across all platforms works as intended.
Evil Dead: The Game was released on May 13th, 2022, and is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
