Epic Games has created an all inclusive feature, allowing you to play with anyone on any platform!
Epic Games has implemented an amazing crossplay feature to their biggest game, Fortnite.
Moving forward, we’re going to see big changes coming with the new season and the release of the next-gen consoles.
This is likely to bring back some old fans of the game, meaning you’ll likely want to play with people on other platforms.
Here, we’ll show you how to play crossplay on Xbox One, as well as how to get your friends set up so you’re ready for the new season!
Epic Games Account Link
To be able to play with other platforms, you’ll need to begin by creating an Epic Games Account.
To do this, download the Epic Games launcher or head to the Epic Games website.
Connect this new Epic Games account to your original Xbox One account. You can also do this on the Launcher/website.

Switch and Mobile Crossplay
To play with Switch and Mobile systems, they’ll need to do the same as you and create an Epic Games account.
unfortunately, you won’t be getting a competitive advantage playing with switch and mobile as you’ll still be paired with Xbox players.
likewise, if you decide to play with someone on the PC platform, you will be at the disadvantage.
