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.
Fortnite is immediately available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and both Android and Apple iOS devices.
Nintendo also announced new games for its console Switch, including a mech-battle action game called Daemon X Machina 2019 and a fantasy strategy game called Fire Emblem: Three Houses, out next spring. The game hit mobile platforms some time ago, and since the Switch is built using a number of mobile-oriented components, porting Fortnite to the Switch seemed like an obvious win.
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. Other games like Minecraft and Rocket League have similar restrictions thanks to Sony not allowing for cross-platform play.
Does this decision affect you at all, or do your Fortnite friends stick to compatible cross-play platforms?
The Pro-Am features 100 total players-the total for a Battle Royale match-50 of which are celebrities, and 50 of which are regular players. Players only need to visit the Nintendo Switch eShop and download the game before they're able to jump into the chaos.
The game's free Battle Royale mode has sucked in millions of players thanks to its cartoonish graphics and the fact it's relastively easy to pick up and start playing.
In addition to "Fortnite", Nintendo announced several other new games, including "Super Mario Party", "DaemonXMachina", and a new story pack for "Xenoblade Chronicles 2", all coming in the next 12 months. Then, sign into your PS4 Epic Games account on the official site, head into the account section, and change your username to anything. Each tier costs 150 V-Bucks.
