Another week, another Fortnite update. Fortnite version 6.01 brings a host of fixes to Epic Games' battle royale sensation. These include improvements to Fortnite Nintendo Switch motion controls to make it feel "more accurate and responsive". The update is now live for Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. On the Nintendo Switch, the Fortnite 6.01 update download size is around 700MB. Plus, Playground mode gets expanded custom options, letting you change settings like health, time of day, and gravity to name a few. Furthermore, a new item has been added to the game called Chiller. It allows you to freeze your foes and slide around for a quick escape.
it was announced that Fortnite is finally getting PS4 crossplay across Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, iOS, Android, Windows PC, and Mac. Sony announced the news on the official PlayStation blog. What this means is PS4 Fortnite players can finally play Fortnite with those on the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. Previously, Fortnite PS4 crossplay was limited to PC, Android, and iOS. In fact less than a month ago, Sony CEO Kenchiro Yoshida stated that Fortnite PS4 crossplay won't exist due to PlayStation being the superior platform.
However it seems that Sony is anticipating issues regarding Fortnite PS4 crossplay. Reason being, it's being termed as an 'extended beta'.
The first step will be an open beta 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," wrote John Kodera, President and Global CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment.
