Sandbox MMO Boundless To Feature PC/PS4 Crossplay When It Launches on September 11th
After almost four years on Steam Early Access, the sandbox MMO Boundless is ready to set sail towards its full release, scheduled for September 11th. The game will be available on both PC and PlayStation 4 with full cross-play functionality.
James Austin, Director of Wonderstruck, said:
Throughout its Early Access run, we’ve watched players flourish within Boundless’ evolving universe. Now, with our full launch in September, we’re excited to see where they take the full game – especially given that PC and PS4 gamers will all be operating within the same space, crafting and creating with each other within the same worlds.
Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West (which will publish the game on PC), added:
For a game like Boundless, which relies on the community to create a constantly evolving universe, allowing every player, in every region, on every platform, to play together was always vital. Because one of the really important, unique aspects of Boundless is that – whichever path you choose within the game, and whichever role you play – you do it in a single, unsharded universe in full view of the entire player-base. Which means that your actions have real meaning.
In a vast universe of connected worlds, the choice is yours.
