Fortnite patch notes v8.10: The Baller, cross-play matchmaking changes

Fortnite patch notes v8.10: The Baller, cross-play matchmaking changes”

Of course, you'll have to opt in to the feature, but if you opt out you'll be restricted to Creative Mode and Playgrounds.

Recently, the developer announced that the Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite would feature cross-play between all platforms, even Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, which feature 60 frames per second (FPS) modes. You can still take advantage of cross-play to team up with your friends. Additionally, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will also be pooled together.

Also of note is the new cross-play support between PS4 and Xbox One users, as well as Nintendo Switch and mobile players.

Combined Mobile and Switch pools. For so long, console wars have always been very controversial, and with cross-play expanding in such a way that puts PS4 and Xbox One players head-to-head, it's going to get a lot more controversial and nasty. Epic expects this will lead to "an on-average better per-game experience for both Mobile and Switch players".

Epic claims this decision is to completely reach "optimization potential allowing us to run more playlists during more hours of the day while supporting more data center locations". Please provide us with feedback on your experience! Before this update, Switch players could play with everyone. The rub is that for months Switch fans haven't been happy that they have to compete against other 60FPS platforms with 30FPS, so this move has been a long time coming. Epic has stated they "neither want to add friction for players nor do we want to benefit from accidental purchases or players regretting a purchase", hence the new system.
