Sure. Fine.

For those looking forward to Halo: Infinite’s multiplayer shooty action, you should be pleased to hear that Microsoft has confirmed that the game will play and progress cross-platform between the Xbox and PC.

“That means if you’re playing on PC, you can play with your friends on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. It also means that your multiplayer customization and progress will follow you across all platforms,” the company said.

And this is just the beginning of the rest of the news! Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have covered, drop us a tip)!

4Story launched a new server to address criticisms: “Players have consistently requested to reset the game economy which failed after several event abuses, to scale more properly (e.g. Jewel, Armor, Weapon, Pet, etc), and to enhance PvP features. The new server has been designed to reflect these voices.”

The Halo cross progression thing feels like they’re just trying to grab a headline or two by saying “we plan no changes to the way we do our first party games at this time.” As for cross-play, it doesn’t make that big a difference: players will likely still be split up by control scheme in PvP , meaning most PC players and console players aren’t likely to actually spend a lot of time playing together.
