Why isn't Fortnite PS4 and Xbox One crossplay a thing?
The first Fortnite Mobile servers are likely to go live by the weekend, so fans waiting for an invite should get a big update on what the new platform is like to play on.
Squad play allows up to five players, be they friends formed before finding a match or strangers placed together during matchmaking, to form a team.More news: Riyad Mahrez keen on forcing move to Roma?
While Fortnite: Battle Royale and its competitor, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, have established the genre on PC and consoles, mobile is already a fertile space for these kinds of games. Presently, Rocket League can be played between Xbox One and Switch users but not in PS4. If there is any possibility for the two digital giants to break the wall in between them then the announcement of Fortnight: Battle Royale was ideal, but the wall remains. Hopefully, though, players will remain alert to such scenarios and Epic will send out the official invites sooner rather than later.
Instead, Fornite is a free 100-player PvP mode (player versus player) game on one giant map. Today, sign-ups have officially opened.
Luckily, rather than instantly pitting mobile players against PC players and the ensuing bloodbath that will follow, Epic have come up with a rather interesting solution.
Three days ago Xbox chief Phil Spencer hinted at Sony being responsible when one Twitter user told him "we really want cross-play system between Xbox One and PS4". Speaking for myself, I am more than excited to see what Fortnite BR will offer both regarding gameplay, stability, and fun.
