Should You Turn The Finals Crossplay Off?

Whether you should turn the crossplay feature on or off is a matter of personal preference. However, consider these factors before you do so. If crossplay is turned on, then you will enjoy shorter queue times as the game will have a larger player base to match you with. If crossplay is turned off, then you will enjoy better quality matches as everyone will be on the same playing field, i.e. console vs. console or PC vs. PC.

What to Do if You Can't Add or Invite Friends in The Finals?

If you’re unable to add friends in The Finals, you can try doing the following things:

Restart the game and see if it fixes the issue. There are some bugs in the game that can cause these problems. Additionally, in the Gameplay section under the Settings tab, you can set your preferred region from “Auto” to the continent you and your friends are playing from. This should help the game narrow down the search pool. Lastly, if your friend is playing on a different platform and you’re not able to add them to your party, go to your Settings and turn on Crossplay.
