Luckily for Civilization 6 players, there is crossplay available between copies purchased from Steam and those purchased or gotten for free from the Epic Games Store. However, players should note that there isn't crossplay between consoles, PC, and mobile.
In order to quickly join up with friends, players need to use Civ 6's join code feature. The host player will have to send out the game's join code to those they want to join. Those who want to join have to input the code on their end so that they may join. This feature allows for players to play together whether they're playing the Steam version or the Epic Games Store version.
Civ Vi Steam Code
To input a code when performing crossplay, players should select the multiplayer option on the main menu and then select the 'Internet (Unified PC Play)' option that comes up. This will only work with PC versions and is not available for Mac and Linux players. Due to the influx of new players, some players are noting some server crashes or an inability to connect, so players should be prepared for that to occur.
