On Tuesday, Epic Games will host an 50-team, 100-person invitational event during the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles for its popular game Fortnite. Now you can take the game with you on-the-go on a device more capable than a smartphone. If you try and login to Fortnite on Switch, you'll receive an error message and there is no way to log out and try another account.
It's important to note that the Switch version of Fortnite only features the free Battle Royale mode and not the PvE-centric Save the World campaign.
A trailer announcing the game's arrival on Nintendo Switch was also revealed, so feel free to check it out below if you're not sure what all the hype is about. As it stands you can now play Fortnite on Xbox One, PS4, iPhone, iPad and now Nintendo Switch.
Fortnite is certain to grab the short-term attention of players, but it's not necessarily a game that will sell hardware.

If you first play on Switch and then try to play on PS4, you'll get the following message: "The Epic Account you tried to link cannot play on this platform".

If you still haven't tried Fortnite , now's the time to jump in as thousands of Switch players see what all the fuss is about. Also available today is Hollow Knight , a cult favourite indie with a hand-drawn aesthetic from Australia's Team Cherry.
Fortnite on the PlayStation 4 does not allow cross-console play, this much we know.
But, now horrified parents have come forward to tell how their daughter became hooked to the game and would play up to 10 hours straight. In fact, a petition was started a few months ago that demands Epic Games "get rid of" Fortnite, with almost 6,000 signatures collected so far.
In the United States, the Fortnite addiction is equally as bad with many parents trying to figure out how to keep their kids away from the battle royale. Each tier costs 150 V-Bucks.
