From today Overwatch will finally be Cross-play between PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. How exactly does it work?

Highly requested for some time, Blizzard finally releases the update for the Overwatch cross-play between different platforms. How to activate it? Simple, you will need to associate your console profile with a Battle.net account (or create a new one if you don't have one).

After performing this simple operation, your profile will be cross-play enabled. However, this introduction has a limit, namely the competitive mode. In fact, this mode does not allow the game to be played between different platforms, connecting console players only to other console players, and PC players to other PC players. Clearly this choice was mandatory, given the more powerful performances of the title if played by PC with mouse and keyboard and with a high number of FPS.

The cross-play will still be disabled at will through the appropriate option created in the game settings.
