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

Nintendo

What isn't obvious is whether or not Nintendo Switch Fortnite players can game with their friends playing Fortnite on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, or various mobile platforms. And if you play any games online on PS4, you do.

If you've ever played Fortnite on PS4, you can no longer use that Epic account to play on Nintendo Switch.

Although a specific time of the day has been given for when the Fortnite download will be activated tomorrow on the eShop, we'd surmise that it will happen at 12PM EST tomorrow morning or shortly thereafter.

Fortnite for Nintendo Switch, one of the worst-kept secrets heading into E3, was officially confirmed today during the Nintendo E3 2018 showcase.

Epic Games has yet to officially confirm the existence of Fortnite on Switch, but at this point, it would be shocking not to see the game tomorrow.

Unfortunately this is neither new nor unexpected from Sony, as their position against cross-platform play with other consoles has been well noted.

Caito Foods has ceased producing and distributing these products as the company and FDA continue their investigation. It recalled fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fresh-cut fruit medley products at its facility.

The Nintendo Switch Fortnite listing says the game will be an over 2GB download.

The game has been endorsed by a large number of celebs who regularly upload videos of them playing the game.

Nintendo said the game can be played on-the-go or at home, per the Switch's main functionality as a portaable or a TV-based game console.

With just hours to go until the Nintendo Direct E3 2018 live stream, at least one surprise appears to have been thoroughly spoiled by leaks and data mines.

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.

The part of "Fortnite" that's so incredibly popular is the Battle Royale mode, which pits 100 real players against each other in a kill-or-be-killed scenario.
