Fortnite For Nintendo Switch Released

Fortnite For Nintendo Switch Released

The game features the exact same content as PS4, Xbox One, PC and iOS.

Are you playing Fortnite on Switch right now?

When booting into the game on Switch with a PS4 account, you'll receive the error message, "This Fortnite account is associated with a platform which does not allow it to operate on Switch". Players can sign in using their existing Epic account to maintain progress between versions.

Notably, you can only link an existing Epic account to Fortnite Switch if that account had been tied to PC, Xbox, or mobile before.

And there isn't anything you can do about it now, with Epic accounts now locked with those specifications until further notice.

Hosted at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, the tournament saw 50 pro Fortnite players paired with 50 celebrities - competing for their share of a $3 million charity prize pool and a Golden Pickaxe trophy.

It's the full game experience, including the incredibly popular Battle Royale multiplayer online game. Unfortunately, the game is now having matchmaking issues, likely due to the influx of players. You can download it from the Microsoft Store here. Switch seems to be the trigger that makes your account incompatible.

Select Duos or Squad mode.

The third match saw Ninja and producer Marshmello triumph in a tense showdown against OpTic Gaming's CouRageJD, who was paired with basketball player Kenneth Faried.
