Dragon fans on Xbox Series X|S can now join the 1 million players already soaring the skies on PC with online cross-play built in from day one.

Players will roar with excitement as they experience the rush of dragon riding with the full power of Xbox Series X|S, and battle it out against existing players all around the world.” – Laurent Denis, Head of Product Marketing
