Playstation Allows Cross-Platform Play with Xbox and Nintendo Switch for Fortnite
Hold onto your butts.. This is MAJOR for the landscape of console gaming. Playstation has decided to beta test cross-platform Fortnite play with Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. That's right, PS4 users can now play with their long lost friends whom may be gaming on other consoles!
President and CEO of Playstation, John Kodera had this to say in a statement:
"For 24 years, we have strived to deliver the best gaming experience to our fans by providing a uniquely PlayStation perspective. Today, the communities around some games have evolved to the point where cross-platform experiences add significant value to players."
The beta will not only allow players to join matches with others on different consoles, but any rewards or progress earned while playing Fortnite on PlayStation will actually transfer to other platforms.
The #Fortnite community has grown so large and the fans we're constantly knocking on Sony's door to open up cross-platform play and here we are. This really is a monumental day in console gaming and only opens up more possibilities moving forward.
Just imagine not having to completely abandon your friends just because they chose the other console!
