E3 2018: Watch Fortnite Pro-Am Celebrity Tournament Livestream Here

This is a flawless chance for both new and old players of Fortnite to enjoy the game while they're on-the-go or on the big screen in the comfort of their own home. This makes Fortnite available on every major platform. Despite that, Epic is promoting the game at E3 2018 in a variety of ways-first by confirming the rumored Switch version and now by hosting a Pro-Am. Regardless, if you've played on PS4 and now want to play on Switch, you'll have to create a new Epic Games account wholly separate from the one tied to your PSN account.

Epic Games has yet to officially confirm the existence of Fortnite on Switch, but at this point, it would be shocking not to see the game tomorrow.

A nine-year-old girl is in rehab after becoming so addicted to a video game she wet herself to avoid moving and hit her father when he tried to stop her playing. You can also purchase a Battle Pass season subscription at a cost of about $10.

Regardless, Fortnite's battle royale is a great addition to the Nintendo Switch catalog as it brings some intense competitive play to the system.

For European players, it will be available to download from the Nintendo eShop at around 11pm BST, and is out now in the US.

This effectively means that players on the Switch will not have access to any of the progress or cosmetic items they may have collected in their existing accounts if they had already used the account on the PS4. One hundred people jump out of Fortnite's battle bus and parachute down to an island, search for assault rifles and gear, then battle it out until only one person is left standing, resulting in a victory royale. Other items of note are that the game will of course support add-on content, with V-Bucks and the Wingman Starter Pack being prominently listed.
