Sony Launches Cross-Platform Play Beta For Fortnite

Sony finally caved in to pressure from fans and game developers, as the Fortnite Battle Royale is getting a cross-play functionality. The company announced that Fortnite will allow PlayStation 4 players to cross-play with Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and mobile device players in a extended cross-play beta.

Following a comprehensive evaluation process, SIE has identified a path toward supporting cross-platform features for select third party content. We recognize that PS4 players have been eagerly awaiting an update, and we appreciate the community’s continued patience as we have navigated through this issue to find a solution.

The first step will be an open beta beginning today for Fortnite that will allow for cross platform gameplay, progression and commerce across PlayStation 4, Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and Mac operating systems. We see the beta as an opportunity to conduct thorough testing that ensures cross-platform play is best on PlayStation, while being mindful about the user experience from both a technical and social perspective.

A few publishers have been vocal about this issue in the past, with Bethesda and Psyonix requesting Sony to allow cross-platform play of their games on the PlayStation. Sony will provide more update on the beta’s timetable when the specifics are available.
