One of the things about Fortnite that made it so accessible was its cross-platform accessibility. This is a significant step in a direction that helps friends continue to play together, no matter their platfrom of choice.
Prior to this update, solo Switch players were able to play with and against users on rival platforms and now owners of Nintendo's hybrid device will be limited to the mobile pool, fighting to the end for a battle royale victory against iOS and Android users. The dev explains that that original solution has now evolved into an undo button in the store "that allows you to easily refund without using up a token within a 5 minute time window, assuming you haven't started a match since purchase", though no timeline is given for when this feature will show up in Fortnite.
The community discovered in the patch notes that players on Switch will no longer be matched up against Xbox One and PS4 users moving forward and will instead face off against mobile and tablet users instead. This means that those playing on the Switch won't be facing those on the PS4 or Xbox One, though you'd think they belong in the same group considering they all have physical controls. "We expect an on-average better per-game experience for both Mobile and Switch players", the company said. Please provide us with feedback on your experience! Though it is important to remember that there is an FPS difference from 30FPS to 60FPS between Xbox, PlayStation, and the Switch, and player complaints about this exact difference have been plentiful.
