The latest update to the popular free-to-play game Fortnite will now see Nintendo Switch owners play against mobile users on iOS and Android. Previously players would play against Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users. One of the reasons the company says that this has been done is because they want players to have an “on-average better per-game experience” You can read all the full patch notes here.
- Combined Mobile and Switch pools.
- Before, Switch players were combined with Xbox One and PS4 cross-play parties.
- We expect an on-average better per-game experience for both Mobile and Switch players.
- Motivating factor is unlocking 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!
