    Nice. Didn’t know this game had cross platform multiplayer.

    Yes, but Steam hasn’t shown any update news about it. It said it was to be released at 2pm EST, but it’s 2:30pm now and I’m wondering where it is? I tried re-launching Steam, but nothing came up. Unless this is being handed to in waves, or giving it to PlayStation Users first and then Steam?
