Epic Games Store and Steam crossplay is finally available

One of the biggest problems for multiplayer games on PC has seemingly been removed, as Epic Games Store and Steam crossplay is now available – thanks to new cross-compatibility tools available for developers, which allow for play across different launchers.

For any players migrating between Steam and the Epic Games Store, it can be a complete pain. While the likes of GOG Galaxy have long since added cross-compatibility with Epic Games Store and Steam, the two biggest storefronts on PC often find it difficult to co-exist – especially when players try to play games available on both launchers, like Dead by Daylight or Fall Guys, and find they’re incompatible.

That seems set to finally change, as Epic has published a new set of free “plug-and-play” PC tools that allow developers to easily implement crossplay support across launchers – all designed to “give developers everything they need to connect their game and community across platforms and stores.”
