Fortnite won’t support cross-play between Nintendo Switch and PS4

Nintendo

Fortnite is a wonderfully addicting battle royale mode in which 100 players are dropped onto an island - either as a squad, duo, or solo - and fight 'til the death until only one player or team is left standing.

A recent leak suggested that Fortnite Nintendo Switch would be revealed during Nintendo's E3 Direct presentation.

Fortnite is available now in early access on iOS, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Also of note to Switch users: Fortnite may have better online communication than other Switch games, which require you to chat on your phone through an app while playing.




But many veteran Fortniters discovered an unpleasant surprise waiting for them when they tried to log into Switch with their old Epic Games accounts. Other games like Minecraft and Rocket League have similar restrictions thanks to Sony not allowing for cross-platform play. Participants will include the likes of National Basketball Association players Paul George, Andre Drummond, Kenneth Faried, Terrence Ross and Reggie Jackson, UFC fighters Sean O'Malley, Demetrious Johnson and Tyron Woodley, Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen and a slew of other celebrities and professional gamers. Of course, whether those games can pull off the same addicting gameplay as Fortnite remains to be seen. "With Switch, you can squad up with your friends in the same room or around the world, and even play on the go".

Nintendo says the game will be available at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday morning, so you don't have long to wait.

In addition to "Fortnite", Nintendo announced several other new games, including "Super Mario Party", "DaemonXMachina", and a new story pack for "Xenoblade Chronicles 2", all coming in the next 12 months. This will then let you create a new account either on the Switch itself or on the official Epic Games site. Each tier costs 150 V-Bucks.
