Fortnite: Here’s How to Enable Crossplay Between PC And PlayStation 4
Fortnite continues to show gamers that there is a different kind of battle royale experience outside of chicken dinners. With constant updates, new events, and around the clock support, it’s not surprising to see the latest title from Epic Games continue to perform so well. The team has also been very vocal about their want to full crossplay, and though Sony has put their foot down firmly against this idea, that doesn’t mean there’s not a way to do it anyway. That’s where we come in.
Microsoft, Valve, Nintendo … these three companies have been advocating recently for crossplay between all platforms. With Sony being the only one firmly against the idea, players are getting creative in how they take matters into their own hands. If you’re looking to join up with your PS4 and PC peeps, PwrDown has provided a helpful guide on how to do just that.
According to the guide:
First off, as a PS4 Player, you will need link your PS4 and Epic Account together. Head to this link and login. You should already have an Epic Games account, if not go ahead and create one. Once you have logged in, make sure you’re in the ‘Connected Accounts’ section on the left.
Choose ‘Connect’ under PlayStation Network, and you will be redirected to the Sony site. Log in to your PSN Account to finish linking the accounts. For this next step, you’ll need the Laptop or Computer. Download the Epic Games launcher here, click ‘Get Epic Games’ in the top right.
Once it’s downloaded and installed, open it. Log in to the launcher with your Epic Games account. In the top right, you can open the friends list. Select the Add Friend button, and add your PC Friend by their username. Let them know they need to accept. Once they have accepted, you shouldn’t need to open the Epic Games launcher again.
Next time you play Fortnite Battle Royale on PS4, your PC Friend will be on your friends list, and they can be invited to your lobby or vice versa. Voice chat works too, so you can talk whilst in game or the lobby.”
Since this is an unofficial way about doing this, there isn’t an Xbox One way to match up … yet. Though Microsoft and Epic have both been in talks, players shouldn’t have to wait too much longer for a more official way. Until then, there’s this helpful guide for PS4 and PC players, at least while the community continues to show their interest to the PlayStation camp.
