Klei Entertainment also used the opportunity to discuss the shared unlock features – which allow players to share their unlocked skins, drops, characters, and more, across participating platforms.
Here’s a bit more information about how shared unlocks will work, courtesy of Klei Entertainment’s website:
“We’ll have more details as this is released, but when players get drops, these drops are granted to your Klei Account and that’s what you have in-game. Soon, you will be able to merge multiple platform accounts onto a single Klei Account and seamlessly use your items on everything connected. This includes crockpot recipes, plant registry, item skins and characters that you gained through drops including woven characters and skins. Bolts (Premium Currency) cannot be shared between platforms.”
Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean crossplay will necessarily be coming to the game any time soon. While crossplay is something the team would “love to do” it’s not possible for the team at this point in time.
