let's see is there somewhere i can read how cross play will work uh did we do a thing on that i kind of lost yeah yeah last week yeah i'm sure we did we talked about youtube or it's on twitch yeah i don't know yeah i think you highlighted it actually yeah maybe you did i don't remember okay yeah days are a blur right now like yeah it's pretty weird but then uh the the way that it'll work is um we use a thing called epic online services uh which is this uh free tool basically that i think anyone can use or the developers aren't there yeah so it's it's public now we've been using it actually for since the game came out yeah we've been using uh epic online services since the game came out and it's just a bunch of tools that enable game developers to do various things um we're not we're only using like a subset of that we're only using it for like connectivity uh and stuff like that uh and it's it's now public so anyone can use it so we've been kind of tracking it up yeah and so what that means is you have the option of connecting uh your steam accounts with not with an epic account right but with epic or something well you have the option of either connecting like combining your epic account with your steam account so you can see your epic friends if you play on steam and vice versa people on epic will see you if you're online on steam or if you don't want to do that then it's just regular old like steam yeah so it's you have the option of connect like um linking your epic account if you want to do that but you don't need an epic account to play the game online whatsoever you also don't need an epic account to even play cross play uh because you can you can get a session id from whoever is hosting and then you can use that to jump on instagram yeah so you don't even need to be friends even in on steam or outside of steam or whatever to play a cross play or any online
