Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree’s bosses are tough to take down, so you might be wondering whether the game supports crossplay or has the cross-platform feature.

Although it is a single-player game it does have a few multiplayer interactions, including PvP, so having crossplay or even cross-platform support is something that you could expect to see.

Does Elden Ring have crossplay or cross-platform support?

Unfortunately, Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree does not have crossplay or cross-platform support. This means that you will only be able to play with friends who are on the same platform as you are.

However, the game has cross-generation support, which means if you’re on a PlayStation 5, you will be able to play with your friends on a PlayStation 4. The same holds true for Xbox systems too.

Does Shadow of the Erdtree have cross-progression support?

Yes, Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree does support cross-progression on all platforms, provided you own the game on the platforms that you intend on switching between. Cross-progression allows players to freely sync progress between platforms. You can jump from your PC onto your console or vice versa while keeping all the settings.

This feature is really great for players who might switch or upgrade to new-gen consoles. Since progressing in Elden Ring is quite difficult when compared to other games, this feature will allow players to continue their game on another device without any issues.

If you’re having a hard time going up against the bosses, here are some of the new weapon types that you can take into account and plan your build around. You can also check out the new Beast Claw and the Backhand Blade as they’re two formidable weapons in the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC.
