To play Knockout City crossplay multiplayer, you’ll need to add your friends using their Knockout City ID. This is a username that is unique to Knockout City, and is the same across platforms. Just press “search KO City IDs” from the Friends tab in the Social menu. To see your own Knockout City ID, it will be listed in the top left corner of the screen next to your player icon while in the Social menu.

Adding a friend by Knockout City ID will allow you to team up and play with them, whether they’re on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, or PC. Once you have a friend added, either join their group, or invite them to join your group. This will put you in the hideout area together, where you can train and practice your skills. From here, the group leader just needs to pause the game and select “Play” and choose which mode the group wants to partake in.
