Valentine’s Day is coming this week and there are a lot of games that you can relax on the couch and play with that special person. In the past year or so, thanks to good games like Rocket League, Mine craft and Fortnite, competitors have realized that supporting the crossplay gaming platform is a win for all. Cross-platform play is the most beneficial feature for everyone. It has a great potential to drastically increase the player pools so you will never have an issue finding a match online and will allow you to play your favorite multiplayer games with your friends on many other consoles. While this feature is still in its infancy, we will likely to see it expand in the coming years to cover the major franchises like Battlefield and Call Of Duty. For now, here is a running list of all the top games that already support the cross-platform play and are arriving in the market this week. Crackdown 3 consists of its new multiplayer mode, Far Cry New Dawn now supports co-op for the full campaign which was a demand for many people, and then there is Jump Force, which will let you settle the score with your favorite anime characters. Metro Exodus is the beginning of a new adventure for the Artyom and his buddies and finally DreamWorks Dragons: Dawn of New Riders gives something for the whole family to play together.
