However, since there is no particular next-gen version of Stranded Deep available for the current-gen consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S, you play the previous-gen version. Therefore, you can play with friends on the same platform but with different gen.
In short, Stranded Deep supports cross-gen play.
What we are trying to say is that a PS4 player can play Stranded Deep with a PS5 player, and an Xbox One player can play the game with another player on Xbox Series X | S.
Similarly, on PC, you can play together irrespective of whether you have purchased the game via Epic Games or Steam.
But when it comes to cross-platform, there is no support. So, if you are on PC and want to play with a friend or random who is playing Stranded Deep on a console, sadly, you cannot do that.
So far, there are no official details on when Stranded Deep will get cross-platform support. Since it is an indie game, the updates for the game are not that frequent, and it is hard to say if Stranded Deep will ever get cross-platform support.
In any case, if there is any news on Stranded Deep cross-platform, we will update the article.
That is it. That concludes our guide on how to play co-op in Stranded Deep.
