PlayStation 4 players in Fortnite have found themselves facing off against Xbox One users and vice-versa. This cross-platform play was first reported on Reddit. Here’s what user PRE_-CISION-_ had to say:
“I was just playing Fortnite on my Playstation 4 and ran into a group of teamers at the end of Battleroyale… surprise… and noticed I got killed by an odd gamertag.”

- ” https://www.twitch.tv/videos/175127882 here is a link of the twitch VOD as proof of whom i was killed by, his friends and the fact I was using a PS4.”
“That gamer tag is IMPOSSIBLE to create on PS4 because of the space. On PSN you are only able to add underscores into gamertags. So I typed it in with an underscore just figuring it was a glitch. Nope, no dice. I am lucky enough to own both a PS4 and [Xbox One]. So I switch over to my XB1 and boom, instant results. I also searched his friend he was teaming with RatoDoGlobal… boom instant results.”

But sadly all things good must come to an end, As spokesperson for Epic Games told Polygon that it was a “configuration issue” that has “now been corrected.”
Fortnite will release as a free-to-play title in 2018, and players can currently purchase the Founder’s Pack to play it now.
