The Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid fighting game continues to grow and offer passionate fans new content to enjoy. From developer nWay (in partnership with Hasbro, Inc., and Lionsgate), the V2.0 update provides access to online lobbies, spectator mode, and crossplay on PlayStation 4.

According to the announcement, the new addition allows up to eight players to join together in an online lobby to battle against each other. Take note; up to four different matches can run simultaneously, and all participants can spectate online while they are on deck.

The V2.0 update has allowed crossplay on the PlayStation 4. This means players across Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC, and now PS4, can all battle each other in the same matchmaking pool from around the world.

Since it’s launch in March of 2019, I have been quite impressed with all of the content that has been released. Compared to the debut, it’s basically an entirely new game now. Players have more characters to select from, a story mode with voiceover, and so much more.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is currently available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Steam for $19.99.

I reviewed the PC/Steam version of the game. You can read it here.

We are proud to be able to offer POWER RANGERS: Battle of the Grid players more content and features over the past several months,” shared Taehoon Kim, co-founder, and CEO of nWay. “With the latest update, the game is now exactly what we had envisioned when we started creating the title knowing that players will enjoy all of the competitive features, immersive story-lines and wide range of characters and arenas that make the game one of the best fighting games available.”
