Fortnite PS4, Switch issue: Gamers are mad, Sony seems unfazed

If you are a new player looking to get into Fortnite who intends on using the crossplay options make sure you link your account to anything but your PlayStation. Like the other versions, you only have to spend money if you want the game's premium features, which are very much optional.

Nintendo announced that Fortnite: Battle Royale would be live in the United States from 10 AM PT on June 12.

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. The game is available to play on Windows, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and iOS.

Fortnite has just been unveiled for Nintendo Switch along with the surprise announcement that there is no release date because it's available to download right now.

At present, Epic says there are no plans to bring the original "Save the World" PvE component of "Fortnite" to Switch. But Xbox One and PS4 cross-play is a non-starter. The game's rise in popularity has led to numerous other developers attempting to inject the mode into their own IPs, including Activision with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and EA with Battlefield V. Previously Sony had explained that their decision to not allow cross-play was to "protect their players' security", but they have chosen to not make any comment on why they're deciding to stay out of such an inclusive platform game.

It's the full game experience, including the incredibly popular Battle Royale multiplayer online game.

Despite being free, there are 100 tiers of weapons, outfits and gear that can be purchased using the in-game currency called V-Bucks.
