Is The Ascent Crossplay Compatible Between PC, Xbox, & Steam? Answered - Twinfinite
Technology
The Ascent is a new cyberpunk, twin-stick shooter that tasks you with uncovering the mysterious decline of a mega-corporation as you ascend through the layered world of Veles. It’s a game that’s best enjoyed in co-op multiplayer with friends, but that will likely raise the question of ‘is The Ascent crossplay compatible between PC, Xbox, and Steam users?’

Unfortunately, if you’re trying to play with a friend who’s playing on PC with a Steam version of the game, you cannot crossplay with those playing on Xbox consoles.

The reason for this? Simply put, Xbox has created an ecosystem that covers both its consoles, and playing games purchased through the Microsoft Store, or via the Xbox App/Game Pass.

As Steam is its own, separate entity from Xbox, they aren’t part of this ecosystem, and so the crossplay matchmaking is unavailable. That doesn’t mean there’s not the possibility of a workaround, however, but that’s not arrived just yet.

So, to summarize:

Hopefully, this helps explain what’s going on with The Ascent’s crossplay multiplayer situation. With a bit of luck, this is something that can be resolved in a future patch. If this does happen, we’ll update this post and let you know.
