‘Fortnite’ Switch Crossplay Detailed By Epic Games

The popular battle royale game is easily one of the most accessible titles on the market, both with a full version port to mobile and its cross-platform play.

And now, it's also on the Nintendo Switch!

Obviously, the Nintendo eShop.

This is a flawless chance for both new and old players of Fortnite to enjoy the game while they're on-the-go or on the big screen in the comfort of their own home. Don't worry, it's still free as only Save the World requires you to pay - that is if you don't purchase the completely optional seasonal Battle Pass.

All the versions of Fortnite that now exist are a free download on their respective platform's stores, with the Fortnite website only offering a download for PC.




The popular online game was downloaded by 150 million people internationally this year, the Washington Post reported. Of course, whether those games can pull off the same addicting gameplay as Fortnite remains to be seen. The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET / 3:30 p.m. PT at the Banc of California Stadium, the home of MLS team the LAFC, which opened in April.

Nintendo announced the news on Tuesday morning during its annual briefing at E3, the video game industry trade show held in Los Angeles.

Save the World is a co-op sandbox survival game that is available now in paid early access on console and PC. Only Xbox One, PC, Mac and iOS confirmed for Switch Fortnite crossplay.
