Yet, with the Fortnite Pro-AM Tournament taking place at E3, Epic Games was able to put the potential for esports on display with 50 streamers being paired up with 50 celebrities for a prize pool of $3 million.
Not surprisingly, many Fortnite players are furious at this.
If you do try this, an error message from Epic Games pops up, explaining: "This Fortnite account is associated with a platform which does not allow it to operate on Switch". It doesn't even matter if you made your Epic Games account on PC: as long as you have played at least one game on the PS4 with the same account, you can't resume your progress on the Switch.
Trump wants to stop provocative 'war games' with South Korea
He did such a smart thing, and I feel so badly about Otto Warmbier, that was the one thing thing", Trump continued. He's convinced the North Koreans know much more about where the remains are than they've revealed before.
Given that Fortnite is pretty much a free to play a game that works exactly the same way no matter the platform, it's only Sony's PS4 owners that are left out of cross-play games.
This is the same for Xbox One, while PS4 players are also barred from joining up with players not on PC and Mobile. During its E3 Direct just moments ago, Nintendo announced that Fortnite is indeed coming to Switch. The game features the exact same content as PS4, Xbox One, PC and iOS. Switch seems to be the trigger that makes your account incompatible. Epic Games will also stream the tournament on its YouTube page and Facebook page. This same problem has come up with Minecraft and Rocket League, both of which were some of the first games to foster cross-play between consoles.
