In a surprising turn of events, Sony has reversed its policy regarding cross-platform play in Fortnite. Previously, the gaming company did not allow its players to interact with those on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, or mobile. Multiple press releases hinted that PlayStation may never join in on this program. However, a tweet sent out this morning showing the change. Fortnite cross-platform play starts today in open beta.

Firstly, an account merging system is set to be introduced in November. This will allow those that created separate profiles to combine progress with a single account. Secondly, unlinking an account from one account and relinking to another is going to appear in the next few days. All of these are planned to assist in the merging process for gamers. Fans of the hit battle royale title have been anticipating the upcoming season. This is going to include new challenges, skins, emotes, and possibly new locations. It is unknown what these may be, but Epic Games has released a few teaser images. Three images show off a robotic llama, cowgirl, and feral dragon that could become playable characters. Season 6 of Fortnite begins tomorrow with a downtime starting at 4 AM EDT.
