Cross-saves, specifically, isn’t an unusual characteristic between Swap and PC, both. The current Diablo 2: Resurrected, for instance, permits for it. As for cross-play between platforms, it’s extra of a regular on daily basis. Fortnite is large on Swap and has cross-play.
Right here’s to hoping Capcom adjustments its tune earlier than Monster Hunter: Rise makes it to PC.
