Fortnite supports cross-play between Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

Fortnite Launching on the Nintendo Switch Today Nintendo Switch Hackers Being Banned From Online Services: Reports
| 13 June, 2018, 05:24

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".

Nintendo also announced new games for its console Switch, including a mech-battle action game called Daemon X Machina 2019 and a fantasy strategy game called Fire Emblem: Three Houses, out next spring.

"We had no idea, when we let her play the game, of the addictive nature or the impact it could have on her mental health", the girl's mother reportedly told Mirror. Unlike PUBG however, Fortnite Battle Royale is completely free. And while its cult-like following has produced some viral sensations ⏤ and certainly rubbed a few teachers the wrong way ⏤ up to this point, the Fortnite obsession has proven no more damaging than any other previous gaming phenomenon.

Whatever questions we have about Fortnite on Switch will be answered soon enough, as launch is just about a half hour away.


Early this morning, Simon Aarons tweeted a screenshot of Fortnite data pulled from Nintendo's eShop servers (more here, and a screenshot right on Nintendo's server here) as they prepare for the game's release.

Basically, what I'm saying is, if you want to use the cross-play options then don't link your Epic account to your PlayStation 4. The graphics seem a little less crisp than what we've seen on the PS4, Xbox One and PC - likely thanks to the Switch's relative lack of graphical horsepower. You can download it from the Microsoft Store here. It's available to download and play today, starting at 10:00 a.m. PT.

It will not, however, be available with PS4 gamers, which also means that PSN users probably won't be able to carry over progress to the Switch via their Epic account. Other items of note are that the game will of course support add-on content, with V-Bucks and the Wingman Starter Pack being prominently listed.
