It will also players to create cross-platform squads and find friends across all versions of the game.

The free-to-play, magic-focused battle royale already has already promised cross-play across all platforms. The game has already seen betas on PC (vis Epic Games Store) and PS4, with Switch and Xbox One launches coming later this year.
Proletariat has described the move as “vitally important” to the future of Spellbreak, giving players as much choice as possible from Day One of the game’s full release. The developer adds that it believes this will become an industry standard in time.
