The final Beta weekend for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is currently underway. PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players are experiencing a large sample size of the adrenaline-fueled action they can expect from the title. One of the most exciting features of this Beta weekend is that it is the first time players can try out the cross-platform capability of the new title. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the first entry in the popular first-person shooter franchise that has enabled players to invite friends from different platforms to play with and against each other. However, the process to invite friends through the cross-platform feature can be a tad tricky, so we have gathered together everything you need to know to do so successfully.
How to Cross-Platform Invite Friends in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
You will first need to make sure that you have the cross-platform feature enabled in the settings of your game. You can find this option in the account tab of the main menu for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Once you have allowed this option, you will then be able to invite friends from different platforms to play with you.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare uses a player's Activision ID for their in-game name. This Activision ID is what you will need to use to invite friends who are on a different platform. First, head to the social tab, which can be accessed by clicking on your friends indicator on the top right corner of the screen. Click on invite friends, and you will see an option for Activision ID. All that is left is for you to send a friend request to someone's Activison ID and they will then be able to accept your game invite no matter the platform they are playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on.
If you are in a cross-platform group, you will be matched into lobbies of other cross-platform groups to make sure the playing field is even.
