Fortnite: Stress with PS4 Crossplay
After the constant fire from the social networks, Sony has now reacted and issued a statement to the BBC. It states that the company is always interested in its players and the gaming experience. In addition, the community is huge with 80 million active users per month and crossplay between the PlayStation 4 and PC, Mac, iOS and Android is quite possible. Concrete statements about the Xbox One or the Switch are searched in vain. Sony may change its mind if the waves beat even higher on the subject. Are you considering switching to the switch version? We tell you what to expect!

Fornite: The Switch version is that good
The first positive surprise: The Switch version of the currently most popular battle royale experience is surprisingly compact with a download size of two gigabytes. Before you start after the installation, however, the creation of an Epic Games account is on the agenda. Important: If you already have such an account from a PC, Mac, Xbox One or iOS installation of the game, you can easily take it over. A link to a “Fortnite” PS4 account, however, is not permitted, as competitor Sony is not doing it here. Alternatively, the account creation can also be skipped. The possibility of forming a cross-platform team with friends on PC, Mac, Xbox One and / or iOS is then left out.
Fortnite: that's how good the game is on the Switch Same content, but technically weaker
Once ready to go, connoisseurs can expect the usual "Fortnite - Battle Royale" experience, because in terms of content, the Switch version is identical to the other versions. The recent map updates, such as the crater in the middle of the game world, are just as present as all of the Season 4 challenges.
Technically, the Switch version does a pretty good job. Matchmaking usually takes less than 40 seconds, loading times are reasonable and the in-house Unreal 4 engine handles the action in most situations at a constant 30 frames per second. The latter, however, not without certain losses. Shadows on the ground, for example, build up visible in parts and objects that suddenly appear at a greater distance from the character are not uncommon - especially in handheld mode.
Be it the meteorite crater on the left in the picture or other gameplay changes from the last updates: In terms of content, the Switch version is identical to the other versions.
And the controls? It quickly becomes part of the flesh and blood, inspires with sensitive HD rumble effects and can be adjusted in numerous points - for example, doors can optionally open automatically. It is also nice that "Fortnite" offers an in-game voice chat for teams and only requires headphones with a headset function. For comparison: “Splatoon 2” can only do this feat with the help of Nintendo's smartphone-based Switch companion app.
