Fortnite for the Switch Has Cross-Play for Every Version of the Game Except PS4

Nintendo's welcome to the Fortnite cross-play party, but one beloved guest is still missing.

Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch features cross-play with every edition of the game except the PlayStation 4 version, Epic says.

When Polygon co-founder Arthur Gies asked about Fortnite Switch's cross-play potential on Twitter, Epic's PR representative, Nick Chester, responded "Xbox One, PC, Mac, and mobile."

In other words, Fortnite for the Switch lets you play with everyone except people playing on the PS4. Sorry, PS4 owners. You're left out in the cold once again.

Fortnite was announced for the Switch at the Nintendo Direct E3 2018 presentation. We've got Fortnite guides galore that are compatible with every version of the game.
