Sony has had a major change of heart and is allow­ing the PS4 ver­sion of Fort­nite to cross-play with The Xbox One, Nin­ten­do Switch, PC, Mac, iOS and Android. 

an open beta begin­ning today for Fort­nite that will allow for cross plat­form game­play, pro­gres­sion and com­merce across PlaySta­tion 4, Android, iOS, Nin­ten­do Switch, Xbox One, Microsoft Win­dows, and Mac oper­at­ing sys­tems. We see the beta as an oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­duct thor­ough test­ing that ensures cross-plat­form play is best on PlaySta­tion, while being mind­ful about the user expe­ri­ence from both a tech­ni­cal and social per­spec­tive.”

No word on how long this “extend­ed open beta” will last, but it is here just in time for the start of sea­son 6. Epic hasn’t released many details about what sea­son 6 con­tains out­side of tweet­ing a cou­ple of pic­tures.

Fort­nite sea­son 6 and its accom­pa­ny­ing patch will be be released Thurs­day Sep­tem­ber 27th. Make sure to check our home­page tomor­row for the all the sea­son 6 info and patch notes.
