Gemini Update - Cross-platform friends and more!

We're incredibly excited to share our biggest update ever. The Gemini Patch, featuring cross-platform party support! Now players on all platforms can add each other as friends and party up for Quick Play, Ranked, and Custom matches. Additionally, Switch users should notice a significant performance improvement in both gameplay as well as controller responsiveness.

Our partnership with Network Next (https://www.networknext.com/) is now live! Players all over the world are eligible for faster connections to our game servers located in US West (California), US East (Ohio), Canada (Toronto), South America (San Paulo), EU West (London), EU East (Frankfurt), AP South (Syndey), and AP North (Tokyo).

Speaking of regions, check out region select (for PC only - releasing on Switch very soon). Choose your region(s) of desired play!
