How to Turn off Dead by Daylight Crossplay?

If you feel that you don’t want to play with others on different platforms, you can turn off crossplay. Follow the steps below for this:

  • Visit Settings from the menu.
  • Disable Crossplay.
  • This is where you can toggle it on as well.
  • Make sure to do it if you are not in a lobby because this option will not be available during this time.

Once you disable crossplay, you can only play with players from the same platform. This also means that the matchmaking times will be longer since the amount of players will be narrowed down.

DBD Crossplay Chat

Console players will not be able to see the in-game chat but PC players get access to pre-game as well as post-game chat. You can use Discord to chat with other players easily, though.

Does Dead by Daylight Mobile have Crossplay?

DBD Mobile players can play with each other, that is Android and iOS players can enjoy this multiplayer game. But they cannot play with PC or Console players as of now.
