Crossplay is the ability for players on different platforms to play together in the same game session. For example, if you are playing on a PC, you can join a game with your friends who are playing on a PlayStation or an Xbox. Crossplay is a popular feature that many games such as No Man’s Sky and Valheim offer nowadays, as it allows players to enjoy their favorite games with more people and without any platform restrictions.

Does Friday the 13th support cross-progression?

Friday the 13th also lacks cross-progression support. You can’t move your data or progress from one platform to another. This means that you have to begin from zero and level up again if you switch platforms.

Cross-progression lets players keep their data and progress when they change platforms. For instance, if you play on a PC and then switch to a PlayStation, you can resume playing from where you left off without losing any of your unlocks, rewards, or game progression.

Since Friday the 13th will stop selling next year because of licensing issues, players have lost hope about crossplay and cross-progression being added in the future.
