Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a key game in Sony's PlayStation 5 launch lineup, but it's also due for release on PS4. The LittleBigPlanet spin-off doubles down on being a tight-knit 3D platformer, and it supports up to four players in local or online co-op. It all sounds pretty good to us, and what little we've seen has been very promising. But what if your pals are getting a PS5 at launch, and you're left with the PS4 version? Will you all still be able to play together?
The answer, thankfully, is a firm "Yes". Speaking with Game Informer as part of a preview on the game, Sumo Digital's Ned Waterhouse confirmed that you'll be able to enjoy co-op between the PS5 and PS4 editions of the game. "We support PS4/PS5 crossplay, so if your friends aren’t upgrading you can still play together," Waterhouse plainly says.
If you're worried about the state of the PS4 version, he says the team is "proud" of what it's achieved on both iterations. "I don’t think players are going to be disappointed if they buy the PS4 version," Waterhouse assures, while also pointing out that the PS5 version of course takes advantage of all the new bells and whistles.
So, there you have it: crossplay between PS5 and PS4 means you can enjoy Sackboy: A Big Adventure with your friends regardless of platform. Are you excited for this one? Are you getting the game on PS5 or PS4? Play nice together in the comments section below.
