‘Fortnite’ Switch Crossplay Detailed By Epic Games

17 June 2018

Today's Nintendo Direct announced that Fortnite is headed to the Switch - and it's available right now.

Good news for Nintendo Switch owners who've jumped aboard the Fortnite bandwagon - from Thursday, the Switch version of the incredibly popular Battle Royale shooter will be getting built-in voice chat functionality.

Nintendo used E3 to announce that the hugely popular game Fortnite is now available as a free download on the Switch console. Fortnite supports cross-platform progression, meaning you can level up a single account across multiple consoles. But anyone who's played the game on their PS4s at any point got a nasty surprise: an error message warning them their Epic Games account wouldn't work.

"Fortnite" World Cup Qualifiers begin in Fall 2018 and will be based on merit, Epic said.

As one might expect from a battle royale tournament with a cash prize, conservative play was rampant during the Celebrity Pro-Am with players attempting to "outlive" their opponents instead of "eliminate" them.

Epic Games has done an incredible job of being one of the most transparent developers out there and continue to maintain an open dialogue with their massive number of fans.

Unfortunately, creating a new account is now the only solution until one of the many appeals to Sony potentially works.
