Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is making history.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is coming to Google Stadia. The fighting game will be free for Stadia Pro subscribers starting June 1. The game launches with cross-play, which means Stadia players will be able to join friends on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch.

This makes Battle for the Grid the first, and currently only fighting game that supports cross-play on all five platforms. In February, the game added cross-play to the PS4 version, allowing Sony’s platform to join existing players on PC, Xbox One and Switch, who had been enjoying cross-play multiplayer since launch.

This is great news not only for Stadia players, who won’t have to depend on the platform’s smaller player base to get some action online, but also for the fantastic precedent it sets for the industry and the fighting game genre. Battle for the Grid, of course, is often praised for its implementation of rollback netcode, which makes long-distance online games a breeze.

Separately, Battle for the Grid developers also revealed that a new season of fighters is coming with three new characters.
