Players today expect to play on any platform and connect with any of their friends. In this session, you'll get an overview of Epic Online Services and how its free back-end functionality enables game communities to play together—no matter which platform players are using.

Epic Games' Josh Markiewicz and Rajen Kishna will dive into Epic Online Services' crossplay functionality, explain what's needed to get started, and illustrate how you can implement EOS crossplay features in your game using any engine.

They are joined by guest speaker Samuel Malone from Vaulted Sky Games, who will provide real-world examples of how Epic Online Services powers their chaotic multiplayer hide-and-seek game Midnight Ghost Hunt.
