  • Fortnite World Cup

Incredibly popular battle royale game Fortnite will be available for Nintendo Switch today, at 10am PST (1pm EST).

Epic Games hosted a 50-team, 100-person invitational event during the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) on Tuesday in Los Angeles for its popular game Fortnite.

Account woes aside - which are largely down to Sony - the Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite looks to perform about as well as we might expect.

"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", the post stated.

Keep an eye out in the Nintendo eShop for the upcoming release. Theories suggest that the issue is tied to Sony's steadfast refusal to support crossplay, but there's no official word from Epic or Sony on the cause just yet.




However, not much information has been made public by the developer in regards to esports competition, including events, private match capability, and more. You can also play this game on Android and iOS phones for free. At the beginning, you parachute into the scene only to be shot down by other players on the field. With Switch, players can squad up with their friends in the same room or around the world, and even play on the go. That's why you should be signing up for the Fortnite World Cup.

Test your skills in the Battle Royale arena against 99 other players for that sweet sweet chance at a Victory Royale.

The season will begin in Fall of 2018 and culminate in the Fortnite World Cup which will take place in late 2019.

Neither Sony nor Epic Games responded to a request for comment. The girl also used her parents' credit card to purchase Fortnite's microtransactions, spending about £50 each month. For continual updates on the game's server status you can check back here.
