Destiny 2 Crossplay Testing Coming Next Week

Along with the start of the Splicer season, the Destiny 2 developers accidentally turned on crossplay. Later, the function was turned off, and now the authors said that they plan to add crossplay in the next 15th season.
However, next week players will be able to try crossplay again as part of the beta test. From May 25 to May 27, all Destiny 2 players will have access to a dedicated Vanguard Strike Playlist for the Crossplay Test.
Recall that the game is available on PlayStation, Xbox, PC (Steam) and Stadia, from where players will be selected for the team. During the test, players will not be able to assemble battle groups themselves and send invitations to friends from other platforms. So far, the developers are testing the selection system.
Players who complete three raids from the Vanguard raid playlist for the test will receive a unique Interstellar Play emblem.

Post-apocalyptic shooter Pioner gets its debut gameplay trailer

The authors note that the development of Pioner in its current form and the current team has been carried out for no more than two years. The first release is scheduled for later this year.
In addition, developers only choose the distribution model. According to them, “the choice of free-to-play for the game will be possible only in the event of a critical development of the situation in the world or if the players find this model more attractive, but they definitely do not.”
