If you want to set up Star Wars: Squadrons crossplay, then there's nothing to stress about as it's incredible easy to set up, so you'll be blasting with your friends on other consoles and PC in no time. By the same token, if you'd rather not get matched up with players on other platforms, then it's equally as straightforward to turn off. Whichever way you want to do battle with the Empire/Rebellion in Star Wars, we've got the lowdown on Star Wars: Squadrons crossplay so you can tailor the experience to exactly what you want.

Star Wars: Squadrons crossplay is enabled by default, which means you're automatically added to games with PS4, Xbox One, and PC players, as well as players using VR and flight sticks. So if that's what you're after, you don't need to worry and can hop in straight away. 

If you're looking to play with friends on other platforms, you'll need to add them to your EA account. You can do this through the game, by getting their EA Account name and adding them to your friends list on the social tab. To find out your EA Account name, simply go into options, go into account, and check the bottom of the menu.

Disabling Star Wars: Squadrons crossplay is similarly simple. All you need to do is head into options, find the account tab, and then turn off crossplay so the indicator shows a red switch. Once you've done that, you'll only be able to play with users on the same platform as you, so if you're worried about coming up against PC players or vice versa, then that's how you can switch off cross-play.

Once you've sorted that out, you'll be free to blast away without having to worry again about cross-play.
