The way the crossplay works is that a team of four Victims joins the same lobby as the team of three Family members. All players on both sides could run the game on different platforms as long as they have a new-gen console or are playing on PC (Steam or Windows). Teammates will be aware of each other’s platform using the console or PC icons next to player names.

Joining a lobby as a team of four will always result in playing as Victims.
