Fortnite Mobile Already Has a Major Clone Competitor

Xbox One news this week includes Fortnite Crossplay and PUBG

In partnership with Sony, Fortnite Battle Royale will support Cross-Play and Cross Progression between PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android.

For its part, Sony claims that it must "think of the children" with regards to online play on its gaming console (at least with respect to Minecraft). Both of those games allow for cross-play between Switch and Xbox, but not PS4. To the tweet, Spencer replied "Me 2".

Gamers would no doubt love to broaden the crop of available players to compete against by bringing the PS4 into the mix, but Sony has been reticent to such endeavors in the past.

"Microsoft has always been a leading voice in encouraging the adoption of cross-platform play and the potential of connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles".

"We've worked closely with Nintendo to allow cross-network play between Xbox One and Switch and our offer to do the same with PlayStation players still holds", Microsoft said in a statement to Kotaku. "For any other questions regarding Fortnite cross-network play between Xbox and PlayStation, please reach out to Epic or Sony directly". And since the PS4 is now outselling Xbox One, disabling the function will only help sustain the present sales figures.

Woods takes share of early lead at Innisbrook
I figure it will be similar tomorrow. "There's so many guys (who) played their way back up into this tournament", Woods said. Woods has been slowed by mistakes, some leading to big numbers the last time he played at the Honda Classic.

Less than a year after landing on PC and console, the game in its Fortnite Battle Royale mode is arriving on mobile to cross the streams, mixing the mobile action with PC and PS4 gamers. Epic has previously stated that their waiting list will be long and that they're only picking a select few, but if you are selected you will also get some codes to send to friends. It will be interesting to see if/how exploits like rocket riding will work on mobile devices, if at all.

Sony hasn't stated publicly why they won't enable this functionality but one thing is clear, it's hurting the overall gaming community and putting PS4 players at an unnecessary disadvantage.

So maybe in the future when mobile phones can pack more power we might see more games live Save the World launch, but right now that isn't going to happen. Epic Games opened its sign-up page for mobile devices on Monday, and the site went down nearly immediately because of all the extra traffic.

Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.
