Let the PC and Xbox One versions play together.
'Rocket League' hit the Xbox One in March, but it debuted on the console missing an important feature, cross-network play. The PS4 version by comparison debuted along with the PC version with optional cross-network support, allowing PC and PS4 players to compete directly against each other.
Post-release there were big changes. A shift in Microsoft policy has opened up the [email protected] program, and as a result, 'Rocket League' on the Xbox One now allows the cross-network play with the PC version. This makes 'Rocket League' the "first-ever Xbox One game to support cross-network play with a Steam PC game."
Of course, a further hope is that players will one day have be able to play 'Rocket League' on the Xbox One against PS4 players and vice-versa, but that's still something to hope for.
For now, this a major change, and should grow the online 'Rocket League' play on the Xbox One by leaps and bounds.
So, as of today, on the Xbox One, cross-network play can be toggled on or off via a check box in the Options menu.
