Fortnite is now available on Nintendo Switch for free

Nintendo used E3 to announce that the hugely popular game Fortnite is now available as a free download on the Switch console. This announcement was made at Nintendo's E3 press conference on 12 June and it seems that this is the next step for cross-platform Fortnite sessions.

Switch owners can now play Fortnite with each other, as well as with people playing Fortnite on Xbox One, PC, Mac, and mobile devices such as Apple's iPhone, according to a BBC report.

Fortnite on Switch will support voice chat through the headphone jack and not through some stupid phone app, just like a normal-ass game.

The qualifiers will begin in autumn 2018, with the World Cup event due to take place in late 2019. Epic said it is not selling any franchise/team spots for its premiere event nor will it allow a third party to do so. There's no doubt that Epic Games will be wanting to capitalize on the football hype with these Fortnite soccer skins.

Fortnite, meanwhile, isn't the only game that doesn't get cross-play support on the PlayStation, though it's certainly more popular than other titles. As part of this, Epic also announced more details on the $100 million Fortnite eSports funding that it announced in May.
