E3 2018: Fortnite Switch Doesn't Include Save The World Mode
Switch players won't be able to save the world.
During Nintendo's E3 2018 press conference it was revealed that Fortnite: Battle Royale was heading to the Switch, and has been released today. However, Epic Games confirmed that Fortnite: Save The World will not be coming to Switch alongside the wildly popular Battle Royale mode. An Epic games representative told GameSpot, "We have no plans for Save the World on Switch."
Fortnite: Save the World is a co-op sandbox survival game that is available now in paid early access on console and PC. Battle Royale, meanwhile, is free-to-play.
Nintendo announced that Fortnite: Battle Royale would be live in the US from 10 AM PT on June 12. Unfortunately, the game is currently having matchmaking issues, likely due to the influx of players. As expected, the game includes co-op and you will be able to group up with friends.
Fortnite's move to Switch will be the game's second jump to a new platform this year. Earlier in the year, a mobile port was released that let players face off against PC opponents.
In other news, Epic has confirmed that Fortnite on Switch supports cross-play with the Xbox One, PC, and mobile editions--but not PlayStation 4. Keep checking back with GameSpot soon for more on Fortnite on Switch.
