Fortnite announces cross-platform play sans Xbox One and PS4


"Fortnite Battle Royale" is the completely free 100-player PvP mode in "Fortnite", with building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat coming into play in one giant map.

Right now, it's unclear what the hold up is on cross-platform play between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, other than that it's a business decision by Sony. However, despite all the solutions that the company is offering, there's still one that hasn't been made - PlayStation 4 owners won't be able to play with Xbox One owners.

"Fortnite" will soon be getting cross-platform support for the Xbox One allowing cross-play with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android players.

We are happy to announce that we have reached a collaboration with our Microsoft partners so that "Fortnite" has cross-play, cross-progression and cross-purchase, between the versions of Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and Android.

In a happy incident back in September a year ago, a bug in the game caused players from Xbox One and PS4 play together.

Last week, Epic Games announced that the hit base-building battle royale title will be making its way to mobile devices.

Sign-ups for the "Fortnite" Battle Royale Mode is now available for iOS users.

You can see above how keen both parties were to involve Sony, but so far they've refused to support cross-play with any game, not just Fortnite.

In a sudden twist, yet possibly expected turn of events, Fortnite developer, Epic Games, has announced that Fortnite will be gaining cross-platform play between Xbox and other platforms. Of course, Epic Games has not specified when this new feature will come into force, but hopefully it does not make you beg too.
