Starting from the implementation of patch 8.10, Fortnite's random default match will bring players Xbox One and Ps4 on one side, and switches and mobile players from the other, to avoid playing at a disadvantage. This, in the same way, does not mean that the cross-play functions of the Nintendo console with the Sony and Microsoft platforms have been completely eliminated, since manually, we can continue to invite acquaintances of these platforms and play a normal game or play the creative mode .
