Fortnite Cross-Play Finally Comes to PS4 Today - PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and Mobile Can All Play Together

You can now link your Epic account to PlayStation and Xbox.

After months of standing firm and rejecting the idea of Fortnite cross-play on PS4, Sony is finally trialling it out in a beta released today. The Fortnite PS4 Cross-Play Beta is available today, and allows players to play with others on PlayStation 4, Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and Mac operating systems.

Sony took to the PlayStation Blog to announce the news, detailing what it calls a “major policy change”. The post explains the reasoning behind the change of heart, and outlines the first steps moving forward:

Following a comprehensive evaluation process, SIE has identified a path toward supporting cross-platform features for select third party content. We recognize that PS4 players have been eagerly awaiting an update, and we appreciate the community’s continued patience as we have navigated through this issue to find a solution.

The open beta seems to be a first step on the road towards fully integrated cross-platform play on PS4, and points towards a future where more third party titles can be played cross-play. There’s no news on a full release for Fortnite PS4 Cross Play, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

The message you used to get when trying to link your Epic account to Xbox if already linked to PlayStation, versus how it looks now.

You can now link your Epic account to Xbox if it's already been connected to PlayStation. This was not previously possible.

Fortnite Season 8 is well underway. We've got all the info, including the Fortnite Week 3 Challenges. We've also got The Fortnite Expedition Outpost Locations.
