Microsoft suggests Fortnite PS4 vs. Xbox One cross-play could happen

"Fortnite" will soon be getting cross-platform support for the Xbox One allowing cross-play with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android players.

"Fortnite Battle Royale" is the completely free 100-player PvP mode in "Fortnite", with building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat coming into play in one giant map. Unfortunately, Sony remained stern with its reluctance to allow cross-play with the PlayStation 4 as it previously did with "Rocket League" and "Minecraft".

Epic Games claims the mobile version of the game will bring "console quality graphics and action".

We're happy to announce today that in partnership with our friends at Microsoft, Fortnite will feature cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase, between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and (in the next few months) Android.

"We have been working closely with the team at Epic Games for some time to bring this functionality to all current and future versions of Fortnite and expect it to be available on Xbox along with other platforms", says a Microsoft spokesperson.

And now, since the publication of the blog and not mentioning Xbox in the cross-platform list, Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox One users will be able to participate in the cross-platform games. This was kind of a bummer considering Xbox has always been the console frontman for pushing cross-play incentives - it was always Sony that wasn't ready to play ball.

Developers behind the hugely popular "Fortnite" video game are soon releasing an iOS version of the game for Apple mobile devices like iPhones, iPads, and iPods. On Twitter, Epic Games' Nick Chester revealed that Xbox One players will only be able to play Fortnite with PC, Mac, and Mobile players, and PlayStation 4 players will also only be able to play against PC, Mac, and mobile players.
