Cross-play is not only useful for playing with friends on different systems, but it can also be used to matchmaking more efficiently, as it expands the player pool and makes finding full lobbies that bit easier.
This fix follows a significant content drop in the form of Chapter 24: Roots of Dread. This introduced a new killer, The Dredge, a new survivor, Haddie Kaur, and the new Garden of Joy map.
In addition to the new characters and map, the game’s store will be featuring a number of collections. These include: the Waterfront Massacre Collection, the Malicious Mannequin Collection, the Chrysalis Collection (arriving on June 14), and the Summer Vacation Collection (appearing on July 4).
