Check out the official Fortnite website for more information on the game. Still, this is what we've come to expect from Sony, which has a history of blocking online play between the PlayStation 4 and other consoles.
"The $100,000,000 will be split between many events at different levels of competition around the globe".
The rumors were true: Fortnite has arrived on the Nintendo Switch!
It's important to note that the Switch version of Fortnite only features the free Battle Royale mode and not the PvE-centric Save the World campaign.
A total of eight Fortnite World Cup skins have been revealed through datamined game files.
Ahead of the opening of the E3 gaming convention in Los Angeles, Nintendo confirmed it will be available to owners of its Switch mobile console from today. Epic will not be selling teams or franchises, and won't allow third-party leagues to do so either. Epic Games also manages to keep the sometimes monotonous nature of battle royale games fresh by continually adding new updates - recently, a vehicle-like shopping cart and a new thermal rifle. Not that Epic Games have said anything about the revenue they've received from the game.

Sony has not commented on the incident but has blocked cross-play capabilities for other games in the past, for games including Minecraft. Epic will be providing $100 million to various prize pools to fund tournaments and community events for the game.
While also on Tuesday the hugely anticipated Fortnite Pro Am was held. With several famous celebrities co-signing the addicting game, Fortnite picked up a long list of free support.
