If a player has the Krossplay feature toggle on, they can play against others on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One in two ways:

  • Whenever players matchmake in Online Kasual modes, the game will now look for the best match across prospective PlayStation 4 and Xbox players.
  • Designated Krossplay Online Rooms will provide a central location for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players to manually meet up and fight against other players on opposite platforms in Online Kasual game modes. Please note, friends on opposite platforms will need coordinate outside of the game ecosystem, then meet up in a specific Krossplay Online Room to play against each other.

How do I identify which platform someone is playing on from the Leaderboard or in Versus?

If you are playing against an opponent on a different platform in Online Kasual matchmaking, Online Rooms or on the Kasual Leaderboards, this will be indicated by a Krossplay icon (two crossed arrows) on their Kombat Kard, while players on the same platform as you will have an icon for that specific platform.

No, the Krossplay feature in Mortal Kombat 11 will not support PC, Nintendo Switch, or Stadia at this time.

If I encounter a Krossplay player who is cheating or using speech that violates the terms of service, how do I report them?

You can view your Kombat Kard from the main menu and go to [Kareer Stats > Krossplay Players Met] to see a history of the players you’ve competed against. If you have reason to believe that an opponent violated the terms of service you, can report them by highlighting their name and pressing the Report Player button. When you report a player, you can select a report reason and enter text about why you are reporting the player. Please note, while all reports are reviewed and investigated, we will not be able to discuss disciplinary actions taken against other player profiles.
