PS4 finally joins the Fortnite cross-play party
Here’s a very apt meme to get the ball rolling.
It’s just like what Buzz says, folks. The Battle Bus is going to get even more packed as Fortnite pulls out all the stops for Season 6 (and beyond). Excuse the reference.
The immensely popular battle royale now allows play across a total of six different platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Mac and mobile.
In more ways than one (or six), this might take competitive Fortnite to a whole new level, as players and streamers alike hop between different platforms to find the right fit. For casuals, it also means you can grab any of your pals for a game regardless of their platform, as long as they’re on your Epic Games friend list.
Heads up, though. The PS4 matchmaking and cross-platform functions are still in beta, so be prepared for some irregularities if you happen to be a PS4 player. Other than that, seems like everything else should run smoothly.
Nevertheless, opening up interaction between six different platforms is a very aggressive move on Epic Games’ part. Fortnite is only the tip of the iceberg, so hopefully other games will follow suit with cross-platform play soon.
