Does Grounded have Xbox/PC crossplay?

Grounded does indeed have cross-platform play enabled between PC and Xbox players. Since those are the only areas you can play the game, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation players miss out on the opportunity. If on console,  both Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions can play together as well.

Like other Xbox games, Grounded’s crossplay feature is automatically enabled and easy to make use of. All you need to do is have the host create a game, and anyone else playing will have to join the lobby. There are four playable kids to choose from, so the lobbies don’t get too big.
