Here is some news that we never thought would happen. Sony has lowered their stance on playing all by themselves and they are now allowing PS4 players to play with Xbox One and Nintendo Switch players.
Sony had drawn a line in the sand and said that they would not allow crossplay. To be fair they are the market leader of this generation and by a very long margin so you can see why they would not want to acknowledge number 2 and 3.
Something has changed though and they have decided that they want to play nice with the others and now crossplay for Fortnite Battle Royale on PlayStation 4 is in a beta. This is really awesome news and hopefully, it is going to lead to Sony allowing cross play on other games.
Just imagine if Playstation 4 and Xbox One players could play games like Call Of Duty Black Ops 4, Battlefield V and Overwatch! The wait times would be much shorter and as a guy who plays Overwatch on Xbox One, I would welcome this.
I think that a lot of this will be down to developers. It has already been said that the new Fallout game is not going to support any kind of crossplay. So it will be interesting to see if Sony does lower their stance on full platform cross play what other companies go along with it and allow cross play on their games.
I am sure that this is going to be huge in the Fortnite community and it is going to expand the player base even more. This coinciding with the new season of Fortnite is the perfect time for them to announced and do this.
