Xbox joins the cross-platform party for Fortnite

Epic has confirmed the game will support cross-platform play between PC, PlayStation 4, Mac, and mobile.


Fans of the white-knuckle action-shooter Fortnite Battle Royale will soon be able to test their mettle on mobile. Epic claims that it will be the “same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates”. The interesting thing about this is that, according to an investment firm, Activision is one of them to see with good eyes the possibility of betting on the Battle Royale.

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.

Battle Royale is getting a mobile version and, as insane as that sounds, the even bigger news is that most versions of the game will also include cross-play. We expect to rollout Android in the next few months. The sentiment has obviously changed inside Redmond, for one reason or another, and Sony seems to be using Microsoft’s own excuse against it. Perhaps Xbox One and PS4 gamers will be grouped separately when searching for matches. One step at a time.

The only Call of Duty game to have some type of Battle Royale mode so far is the China exclusive game called Call of Duty Online.

As you might have heard, Epic recently announced that Fortnite Battle Royale would be launching on mobile devices.

Thinking precisely in the latter, Epic Games wants to eliminate all possible barriers and offer the best facilities to the users to enjoy their title.


In a nutshell, Microsoft is saying that it is more than willing to have cross-play between Xbox and PlayStation systems. That’s right, you’ll will you be able to play the same Fortnite game with 99 other users in a unique cross-platform experience. Not all platforms will play nice with one another, and getting a game going between console and PC requires some extra work.
