How to enable crossplay in Destiny 2

After a quick beta period, crossplay is live in Destiny 2 with Season of the Lost. Here's everything you need to know about it.
How to enable crossplay in Destiny 2

Season 15 of Destiny 2 is finally here, officially called Season of the Lost, bringing a brand-new season pass for players to grind and serving as a prelude for the upcoming The Witch Queen expansion, it's one players will not want to miss.

To make things even easier for Guardians, they'll now be able to group up with friends in Bungie's free-to-play action MMO thanks to crossplay, which has now gone live with the start of Season of the Lost.

A feature many fans have been asked for years, crossplay underwent a quick beta period during Season 14, and is here to stay, marking an important step forward in Destiny 2's longevity.

With all that being said, let's take a look at everything you need to know about crossplay in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 crossplay - How to enable

First thing to note is that once you login into Destiny 2 with the start of Season of the Lost, you'll receive a notification indicating that a unique name alongside four digits has been automatically created to smooth the crossplay process.

At the moment, it's not possible to edit your Bungie name, but the devs have mentioned this feature will come with a future update.

How to add friends

So, with the process being set up automatically, you're wondering, how to add friends from another platform? Well, that's rather simple as well, as you can do it both in-game or from Bungie's site.

Adding friends in-game

The easiest method is doing so directly from Destiny 2. Simply open the directory and go to the roster tab, head down to manage invites, and input the Bungie name (the one with the four digits at the end) of the friend you want to add, and it should pop up.

Adding friends from Bungie.net

Go into your account settings on Bungie.net by clicking here and select 'Import friends.' This will allow you to sync up your friends lists from services such as Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam.

Does it support voice chat?

At the moment, it does not, sadly. Bungie is working on implementing an in-game voice chat soon, however, as they didn't want to further delay crossplay, it's a feature that's not yet available. But hey, there's always Discord, right?

Can console play with PC?

The answer is yes, but there's a bit of a restriction in place.

Competitive modes like Gambit and Crucible will have dedicated console and PC playlists. If a console and PC players group up, they'll be put in the PC-only playlist. Trials of Osiris requires all players to have crossplay enabled.

For the rest of the PvE content, all players will share the same pool, regardless of console.

If you want to disable crossplay, follow these steps. Note: only console players can opt-out.

  • PlayStation: Players will have the option to opt-out of cross-play from the in-game settings menu.
  • Xbox: Players can disable cross-play by adjusting the settings of their Xbox console:
    • Navigate to Settings > General
    • Online Safety & Family
    • Privacy & Online Safety
    • Xbox Privacy
    • View Details and Customize
    • Communication and Multiplayer
    • Set "You can join cross-network play" to "Block"
