Tekken 7 did not have the crossplay option, and neither do previous Tekken iterations, so this is a revolutionary addition. You can now game with your friends regardless of your gaming platforms.

When you first start the game, Tekken 8 will ask you if you want to enable crossplay. Enabling crossplay means you can participate in matches against players on other platforms. If you are playing on PC, you might get matched up against console players and vice versa.
