If you opt out you can only play Playgrounds or Creative Mode, so keep that in mind.

Fortnite, the widely popular 100-player battle-royale first-person shooter from Epic Games, has received an update today, bringing cross platform multiplayer between the PS4 and Xbox One editions to table (via Thurrott). This gives players on the powerful hardware an advantage because not only are the controls much more responsive, but the added frames increase precision. It also has cross-play functionality, letting players on different platforms compete directly.

The change appears to have been a result of ongoing performance issues with the Nintendo Switch version of the game, which lagged behind the PS4 and Xbox One versions, causing a disadvantage in performance for its players.

We've seen many users express concern about this, and Epic Games made a decision to modify cross-play a little.


"Motivating factor is unlocking optimization potential allowing us to run more playlists during more hours of the day while supporting more data center locations", Epic writes. Please provide us with feedback on your experience!

The dev then goes on to say that an undo button will be heading to the game in a future update so that players will no longer have to deal with accidental purchases. With Switch's 30fps cap and the rival consoles' 60fps target, many felt it was an unfair experience.

What do you think about this adjustment?

A new week is here, and we all know what that means.
