Epic Games, developer of Fortnite
, has announced cross play between PS4, PC, Mac and a newly announced mobile version on iOS and Android.
Epic says of the decision:
We believe this is the future of games. The same game on all platforms. Console quality graphics and action. Play when you want, where you want.
Some console players will surely oppose being thrown into cross play with PC players since the precision of mouse and keyboard is considered advantageous over a controller, so they'll be glad to know cross play is "opt-in."
