Virtual reality games are taking a step up this year and a handful of companies are now interested in making titles for it. Ubisoft just announced that its multiplayer functionality for virtual reality games will support cross-platform play. This means that Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR players can now connect to each other and play online co-op or compete with one another, regardless of what VR headset the player is using.

As a pioneer game, Ubisoft pushes Eagle Flight and shows off its cross-platform capability. The feature is available on Nov. 29 for Oculus Rift and PS VR users. The HTC Vive users will catch up by Dec. 20 when a version up of the game rolls out.

David Votypka of Red Storm says that the games will feature strong multiplayer experiences, gamer friends playing together regardless of what VR headset is owned will absolutely enhance the socialization of their games. The cross-functionality feature also aims to have its games the way it is really envisioned.

"Our games feature a strong multiplayer experiences, so letting friends play together regardless of which headset they own will enhance the social nature of our games and let them be played the way we envisioned,"

Not just Eagle Flight, Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Werewolves Within will also be joining the cross-platform party on Mar. 14 and Dec. 6 next year, respectively. Both these titles will be ready for all VR platforms during launch.

Gamers today are frustrated why there are no cross-platform games offered but this new step by Ubisoft on VR cross-platform multiplayer will be the first step in uniting all consoles and the PC and create a harmonious gaming community. The only difference the gamers have in the future are their preferred consoles, not anymore their ideals on what consoles should be used.
