Since its original release in 2013, the action-RPG Path of Exile has found its way to many platforms. While there is a Path of Exile 2, the original game’s proven formula (and its low free price) means it still enjoys a healthy playerbase to this day. But although it is available on many platforms, is Path of Exile cross-platform?

Is Path of Exile cross-platform?

Basically, the answer to this question would be no. Path of Exile’s servers are separated based on platform, so you won’t get players from platforms other than your own. There is, however, a bit of generalization in determining what platforms the servers cover.

Is Path of Exile cross-platform Xbox and PC?

An understandable connection, given Microsoft and all, but sorry, no.

Can you link PS4 and PC Path of Exile?

That’s another negative, good friend. No cross-play between PC and PlayStation is allowed.

So what platforms can connect to each other? Basically, the servers are divided into three categories: computers, Xbox and PlayStation. This means that while a PC can’t play with an Xbox, it can play with a Mac computer. In the same vein, an Xbox One player could play with an Xbox Series X player, and a PlayStation 4 player could play with a PlayStation 5 player. Cross-generational gaming, I guess you’d call it.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, there’s no cross-progression support either, at least not unless you’re playing the Steam version of Path of Exile between PC and a Mac. This is one save file per platform, no transfers are allowed.

As for whether these features will be implemented later, given that the sequel to the game has already been released for several years, it is not likely. If you want to play with your friends, you need to make sure you’re playing in the same console ecosystem as them.
