Reading Time: 1 minute

Sony has announced that cross-play between PlayStation 4 and other platforms is coming to Fortnite. In a statement posted on the PlayStation Blog, Sony Interactive Entertainment said it has “identified a path towards supporting cross-platform features for select third-party content.” The first of these third-party titles is Fortnite, and an open beta has begun that allows for “gameplay, progression, and commerce” across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, Mac, Android, iOS.

Tim Sweeney, the head of Fortnite developer Epic Games,  said that he believes it is in the industry’s best interest to allow gamers on competing platforms to play together, and added that he believes cross-play is “inevitable.” With Sony now on board, Sweeney has been proven right.

The cross-play beta arrives on PS4 in time for the start of Fortnite Season 6, which has begun on all platforms.
