"Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid" Receives A 2.0 Update

The folks at nWay have released a new 2.0 update into Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid, adding in more content and smoothing out the game a bit. First off, the update opens up crossplay on PlayStation 4, so players across Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC can now battle. You also now have access to online lobbies and spectator mode,  as well as having up to eight players to join together in an online lobby to battle against each other. Four different matches can run simultaneously, and people can spectate while they wait for a new pairing. You can read more about what's all in the game from the updates over the past few months below.
