As has been rumored for some time, Fornite is coming to Switch. In fact, as of Nintendo's E3 2018 presentation, the game is available to download and play for free. Fortnite is a battle royale that has taken the world by storm of the past year. The Battle Royale mode is free to play (with plenty of micro-transactions). The Swith version even supports cross-platform multiplayer with PC and Xbox One.

To the dissapointment of many, the paid Save the World mode is not coming to the Switch at all. While this mode is significantly less popular than the PvP Battle Royale mode, it has typically been included with past console launches. It should also be noted that while you can link your Epic Games account to continue progress from PC or Xbox One, PS4 players will not be able to link their accounts and play on the Switch. No cross-platform play is supported with players on Sony consoles.

The game has been downloaded over 2 million times in the past week, to give you an idea of how popular the game has become. If you've yet to try out the 100-player Battle Royale, this seems like a perfect opportunity. If you've already been playing on PC or Xbox, go ahead and give it a go on the Switch. It's free, after all.
