Sony Prevents PS4 Players from Logging in to Fortnite on Switch

Interestingly, there was also no mention of cross-platform play between the Nintendo Switch and any of the other platforms it is available on.

Competitive games like Fortnite benefit greatly from players being able to talk to each other. But if you've been playing Fortnite on the PS4 and want to move your progress over to the Switch, there's no such luck.

Based on the screenshot Aarons shared on Monday, Fortnite will launch on the Switch on June 12th, 2018, which just so happens to be the day that Nintendo will stream its E3 event.

At present, Epic says there are no plans to bring the original "Save the World" PvE component of "Fortnite" to Switch.

Fortnite on the PlayStation 4 does not allow cross-console play, this much we know.

Of course, there is one obvious exception to what would otherwise be universal cross-platform support: Sony, for whatever odd reason, still appears to be blocking some elements of cross-play connectivity.

Here are some of the biggest Switch ports coming out of E3 2018. Then, sign into your PS4 Epic Games account on the official site, head into the account section, and change your username to anything. In fact, it's arriving even earlier than we imagined, available today as a free download from the Nintendo eShop. And with absolutely zero barriers to entry, you should definitely download this free-to-play battle royale game.

Fortnite Battle Royale can be downloaded for free from 6pm United Kingdom time TODAY.

In addition to the game's availability on Nintendo Switch, a brand new starter pack was also made available today on all platforms.

Among the participants are actor Joel McHale, NBA player Paul George, WWE wrestler Xavier Woods, and a number of others on the celebrity side, while the "gamer" side feature well-known streamer Ninja.
