Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is an action role-playing game that is heavily focused on fierce battles with numerous different enemies. You play as Jack, a strong warrior with a devotion to defeating chaos. Alongside your allies, it's your job to bring back the light of the crystals to save the kingdom of Cornelia from the darkness.
There are many areas for you to explore throughout the game. You can find hidden areas filled with loot or you can find yourself stuck in the middle of a difficult battle against multiple foes. This is where you can call on your friends to help you as the game supports multiplayer co-op. However, can you play with all of your friends?
In this guide, we let you know if the game is cross-play enabled, and if it works across the console generations.
Is It Cross-Play Enabled?
Yes, the game supports multiplayer cross-play across the console generations. However, it is limited to the console families. Therefore, PS4 can cross-play with PS5 but it cannot do it with any of the Xbox versions of the game. This is the same principle for Xbox, as Xbox One can cross-play with Xbox Series X|S but it cannot do it with any PlayStation console. This means that if you want to play with your friends, they will need to have a version of the game from the same console family.
Do You Need to Set Up Cross-Play in Multiplayer Mode?
No, if you're creating a room to be the host of a multiplayer session, you do not need to set up cross-play for it to work. If you're playing on PS5, then you can create the multiplayer session as normal and invite your friends on the PS4 or PS5 network. The same applies to Xbox consoles.
This also applies if you're joining a multiplayer room. If you are playing on PS5, then you will be able to join a PS4 or PS5 multiplayer session. You will not be able to join any Xbox sessions. Unfortunately, there is no way for you to enjoy multiplayer co-op with friends from another console family at the moment.
