Fortnite On Nintendo Switch Doesn't Have Save The World Mode

The Epic game is now available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and iOS, in addition to the new Nintendo console. In short, Fortnite on Switch is one of the most exciting E3 developments that has never truly been a surprise. Fortunately, "Fortnite" players will only need to plug in their headphones with a microphone and they're good to go.

Details of the Switch port for the popular Battle Royale game have been floating for some time, but it looks like the date has officially been confirmed, and it's sooner than you might think.


Fortnite started out as a co-op sandbox survival game that pit you against both zombies and other players.

"We'll be supporting community organized events, online events, and major organized competitions all over the world, where anyone can participate, and anyone can win", explains Epic Games. The qualifiers will begin this fall, while the tournament itself kicks off in late 2019. Epic said it is not selling any franchise/team spots for its premiere event nor will it allow a third party to do so.


Of note, it seems that Fortnite will come with some Switch exclusive skins as well as it being its Battle Royale form; Save the World is neglected once again. It was additionally corroborated by a leaked Nintendo E3 document and a continuously updating page data mined from the Switch eShop.

Sony hasn't specifically said why it is blocking cross-platform play, but it's likely because it's now dominating the console market and doesn't want anything to jeopardise that. There's no doubt that Epic Games will be wanting to capitalize on the football hype with these Fortnite soccer skins.


The controls are well labeled and similar to the PS4 and Xbox One, so it's not too hard to get used to combat and crafting. Sony certainly appears to be the sticking point on this one, at least from the outside.
