NBA 2K24 Crossplay Guide: Is 2K24 Cross Platform?

Looking for the details on NBA 2K24 crossplay? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve got you covered with all the details you need to know about this multiplayer feature.

In the last few years of gaming, crossplay has become a major selling point for multiplayer franchises. Fortnite and Call of Duty were two early adopters of the technology, allowing players to play with anyone regardless of platform. So, does NBA 2K24 feature cross platform play? And how far does the technology go?

Is NBA 2K24 Crossplay?

For the first time in the franchise’s history, NBA 2K24 features cross platform capability! Finally, players can join up with their friends regardless of whether they play on PlayStation or Xbox. This functionality has definitely been a long time coming for NBA 2K fans.

There are, however, some important limitations. This mode is only available on current-gen editions of the game. This means that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S players can use this new capability, but players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and, somehow, PC are left in the dust of this new functionality.

These consoles do get cross-gen capability, though, meaning that players can get a pricier edition of the game to get a version for the last and current-gen version of the game, as long as they stay in their console’s ecosystem when they upgrade. This also features a cross-gen wallet, letting players carry their MT & VC forward if they upgrade in the middle of the game’s lifespan. You cannot share currency, for example, across PC and Xbox.

How to Play 2K24 Cross Platform With Friends

First, make sure your crossplay feature is enabled. On PlayStation 5, this menu will be available on the bottom of the settings menu. On Xbox, you’ll want to navigate to the settings menu on your console to enable this setting.

Once you’ve made sure that’s in order, when you’re on the screen to invite friends to a game, press L1 and R1 (or your platform’s equivalent) at the same time. This should bring up the menu to add new 2K friends, and invite both 2K and platform friends. Use this menu to invite friends regardless of what platform you’re on!
