Everything you need to know about PS4 and PC crossplay in Fortnite!

Fortnite has increasingly become a massive part of the video game landscape. The Battle Royale title has seen plenty of pop culture collaborations and crossovers, and usually keeps players coming back with innovative new gameplay mechanics and island map changes. It’s no secret, however, that Fortnite is best played with friends. It makes people wonder if there is crossplay between PS4 and PC in Fortnite. Here’s what you need to know.

Is there PS4 and PC Crossplay in Fortnite

Yes, Fortnite is now crossplay compatible on all platforms. That means gamers on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PC, Nintendo Switch, Android devices, and those playing on the cloud can all hop into a lobby together and grab that Victory Royale.

When it comes to Sony and PlayStation 4, however, the wait for cross-play has taken far longer than any other platform. Indeed, Sony was initially reluctant to allow crossplay compatibility for games on its platforms, although the reasons are unclear. Some claim this was due to their strong position in the industry at the time, while others believe it could be due to technical issues on the PlayStation Network backend that prevented it.

Anyway, the good news is that this is no longer an issue and PS4 and PC cross-play in Fortnite is now a thing!

How to play Fortnite with friends on PC and PS4

First, console players on PS4 will want to make sure they’ve created an Epic Games account and linked it to their PSN. This same process can also be duplicated for console players on Xbox One if they connect their Xbox Live account to an Epic Games account.

Once you’re logged into the game, press the “touchpad” on your controller and you’ll open the “Social” menu. This will appear on the left side of your screen.

Now click on the icon that looks like a person with a ‘+’ sign in front of it. Here you will be able to add someone’s “Display Name”. This is their Epic Games account name, so go ahead and enter their Epic Games account name.

Your friend will then receive a friend request in the Epic Games launcher on PC, or in-game Fortnite if they’re on PS4 (or PC and already in-game as well). Just ask them to accept your invite, then they’ll appear permanently in your friends list in Fortnite’s social menu.

Select their name and choose the “Invite” option and you’ll be good to go.
