Fortnite Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 compatibility angers gamers

Is Fortnite Cross Play on Nintendo Switch?

The popularity of battle royale games was underlined by new figures from Nintendo, which said on Wednesday that in the first day of Fortnite being available on the Switch it had been downloaded more than two million times.

Ahead of the opening of the E3 gaming convention in Los Angeles, Nintendo confirmed it will be available to owners of its Switch mobile console from today.

Fortnite on Switch will support voice chat through the headphone jack and not through some stupid phone app, just like a normal-ass game.

"We'll be supporting community organized events, online events, and major organized competitions all over the world, where anyone can participate, and anyone can win", explains Epic Games.

A spin-off from the original game, the newly developed Fortnite Battle Royale was released previous year in September.

The events will be based around the solo and duos format and the $100,000,000 prize pool will be spread out amongst the many events all over the globe leading up to the World Cup. Qualifying for the Fortnite World Cup will be based exclusively on player skill. Due to PUBG's success, the battle royale genre, where you have to fight for survival against 99 other players, has become extremely widespread throughout gamers.

The qualifiers will begin in autumn 2018, with the World Cup event due to take place in late 2019. There's no doubt that Epic Games will be wanting to capitalize on the football hype with these Fortnite soccer skins. If you've put several hours into the game, your progress, skins and purchases will all be lost. This means a Switch player will not be able to play "Fortnite" online with friends on PlayStation 4.

Instead of paying for the game, "Fortnite" players have the choice of paying for the game's "Battle Pass" - a system of challenges that unlock various in-game items - or outright buying items for their characters.

This is also ideal for the developer of the game, Epic Games, which is trying as hard as it can to expand its number of players.
