Thanks to updated technology in gaming, players can now feel closer than ever with their friends and other players. Well, that’s all because of the cross-platform games that the gaming industry has now. Some may be free while others require full payment, but they are all fun to play. Here are the top 9 best cross-platform mobile games for PC.
Please take note that these are not in any order.
While it may have been released in 2018 on Steam, Among Us grew in major popularity in 2020 after the developers released a free to play version on mobile. This action led to millions of players suddenly flocking into the game and experiencing a unique multiplayer experience.
Genshin Impact allows players to work together and finish objectives while finding out who the imposter is killing the other players.
It received massive praise thanks to its simplistic gameplay design with a robust cooperative system that makes every game session unpredictable.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
In 2019, Activision “rebranded” the widely popular Call of Duty series in Modern Warfare (even if they used the same title from 200). They made a complete overhaul of the graphics, a whole new set of content, and a complete overhaul of the gameplay mechanics. Infinity Ward threw the old system completely out of the window and made a fresh new start that felt more like Battlefield than CoD itself.
Another surprising twist to the game is the inclusion of cross-platform gaming. This process allows letting players from PS4, Xbox One, and PC connect in a high-stakes match.
This action also works on the free to play battle royale game, Call of Duty: Warzone.
In 2020, developer Respawn Entertainment announced that their most popular battle royale game: Apex Legends, would finally include cross-platform gaming. That includes players from PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC to come together to battle, which squad reigns as the king of the hill.
Surprisingly, there have been minimal connection issues regarding cross-platform gaming.
Perhaps one of the most known games that introduced cross-platform gaming on just about any platform. That includes PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, AND mobile, Epic Games’ epically successful Fortnite. This battle royale game reached its peak in 2018 thanks to its major exposure from live streams, especially Ninja, back in his Twitch days.
Fortnite may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this builder-shooter game hit right in the marks of many players with its faster gameplay compared to the likes of PUBG and DayZ.
Street Fighter V
Street Fighter V is considered the weakest in the long-running Street Fighter series. The 5th major installment of the fighting game franchise allows you to play with both PC and PS4 players. Generally, the game is still fun. It may be less competitive and more streamlined than older titles. However, it is still a solid game thanks to its signature fighting system, a great roster of characters, and more reasons to simplify for the female fighters.
Genshin Impact changed the way players think about Chinese video games as a free to play RPG. Now considered one of the best open-world games ever made, Genshin Impact made a huge impact on a mainstream audience. The game revolutionized what a free to play RPG can do.
With a rich and lively world tailored with intriguing characters and a deep story, no wonder Genshin Impact became a massive success in just under a month. Within one week, it earned $160 million worldwide. It is also available to play on PS4, PC, mobile, and Switch and lets you play cooperatively through cross-platform.
Honkai Impact 3
This game made Chinese game publisher and developer Mihoyo successful and moved on to create Genshin Impact. Honkai Impact 3 also set a high bar for what a mobile game is capable of. It landed the biggest impact when their advertisements were accurate to the actual gameplay.
Explosive gameplay, lots of bad guys to slay, and tons of cute girls lit up the game, garnering millions of players worldwide. Were it not for Honkai Impact 3’s success (and its thousands of whales), Genshin Impact would not feel as high budget and stable as it is now.
You can play cooperatively with both PC and mobile players.
It is very odd to know that PUBG Mobile has better performance than its PC counterpart and allows cross-platform between PC and mobile players. While you can only play this on the emulator for PC, you can still connect with mobile players. It’s not as fast-paced as Fortnite, Warzone, and Apex Legends but is still a great war simulator. Sort of.
Asphalt 9: Legends
This gameplay is a unique form of cross-platforming. It does not have a version on the major consoles, but you can connect with players on the PC, mobile, and internet TV players.
Did you have a good shot on the games mentioned above? Well, perhaps it’s time for you to try every game on these examples. Overall, Honkai Impact 3, PUBG Mobile, and Asphalt 9 are available for free to play on PC. Download them all on Games.lol.
