Player’s, you’ll also be able to continue to team up with your friends anywhere with the full cross-platform play. The next chapter plans on starting later this summer with the game’s biggest update. Once the update is available, the game will be available to download for free. The returning players will notice a fresh coat of paint as soon as they’ve started the game.
