Wo Long: Fallen Dysnaty is a newly released action RPG from KOEI TECMO. This is essentially a spiritual successor to the Nioh series, which was the studio’s take on the Soulslike genre. Unlike Nioh, Wo Long Fallen Dynasty is set in China and explores the Three Kingdoms during 184 AD. The tile is coming to a variety of current and last-gen consoles, as well as PC. Like Nioh, the game has multiplayer elements as well. Though is Wo Long Fallen Dynasty cross platform? Here is everything you need to know.
Is Wo Long Fallen Dynasty Cross Platform?
Wo Long Fallen Dynasty does not support cross platform play. This was officially confirmed during an interview with Team Ninja conducted by Wccftech.
Here is the full quote that goes into detail about the multiplayer capabilities across different platforms.
Multiplayer will play a big role in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and the release on Xbox Game Pass can make the community bigger than ever. Will the game support cross-platform play? Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty will support cross-generation multiplayer, allowing users on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 or Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One to play together. Cross-platform play between PlayStation and Xbox users will not be supported.
So, basically, if you’re planning to play with your friends across different generations, for example, the PS4, or PS5, then you won’t have any problem. However, if you plan on playing with your friends that have the game on a different console environment, like the Xbox One, then you can’t enjoy any multiplayer elements.
What about the PC Version?
There is no word about the PC version, but both Nioh 1 and 2 didn’t have crossplay support either, so it shouldn’t be a shock if there is a lack of cross play support. We’re curious if Steam players will be able to play with Game Pass for PC players, but nothing about that has been revealed just yet.
Additionally, there’s a chance that Game Pass PC users might be able to play with Xbox users because of store tags on the Wo Long Fallen Dynasty page, but without official confirmation, we can’t say for sure.
We’ll contact the developers and update this if we receive confirmation.

Nioh 2 did actually feature crossplay between Steam and Epic Game Store versions, so it seems strange to see that Wo Long is not going down that route between Steam and Gamepass.
Yeah, I guess we’ll know for sure at the launch.
usually when games get into Game Pass or Microsoft Store in general, they use the same Port as for the console and only allow them to play together inside that eco system, since they need privacy agreement between Xbox and Valve for “crossplay” between both platforms. Its easier this way and less an headache to develop, i mean you can not play Mortal Kombat X outside of the Xbox Ecosystem even on PC
yeah, I believe it’s the same SKU or something, and you’re right, even games like Killer Instinct don’t have cross-play with Steam.
does not seem to be able to play with steam players. i acquired a xbox pass and could not find my friend to join.
