So is Trove cross-platform, meaning is Trove crossplay so you can play with friends across different gaming platforms?

Trove isn’t cross-platform, which means you can’t crossplay with friends on consoles if you’re running the game on Microsoft Windows and vice versa. Likewise, Trove isn’t crossplay between Switch, Xbox One, or Xbox Series X/S and PS4 or PS5. However, Trove is cross-gen (through backward compatibility for now), allowing players within the same console platform to play the game together.

Is Trove cross-generation?

Yes, Trove is cross-gen – though only through backward compatibility. That means that Xbox Series X/S owners can crossplay Trove together with Xbox One owners. Likewise, PS5 players can play Trove together with PS4 players. That’s because it’s the same version of the game running on both platforms.

​Is Trove cross-progression?

Trove isn’t cross-progression, meaning the game doesn’t support cross-saving between different platforms.

​Is Trove on Mac?

Trove is no longer supported on Mac. This is due to Mac OSX Catalina introducing some changes that made it difficult for the developers to get it to run smoothly on Mac. If you own a Mac with an older OS than Catalina, you should still be able to play Trove.

​Is Trove split-screen on PS4?

You can’t play Trove as a local couch co-op split-screen on PS4 or PS5.
