Function of crossplay
The crossplay offer is constantly being expanded, so that titles like “Minecraft” or “Fortnite” not only run on a console or PC, but also support other platforms and computer systems. Usually, an account is used to connect to the various devices and the games.
Everything cross and play
In the case of “Crossplay”, a distinction is usually made between “Cross Save” and “Cross Buy”. The difference is that a “Cross Save” only shows the memory status on all devices. The second console or computer just becomes the storage location. “Save” should not be confused with “safe”.
