Let’s face it – this is probably sitting on your Switch dashboard already, and there it should stay. Epic has delivered the full fat Fortnite: Battle Royale experience on the ‘homeheld’. The omission of Save the World is disappointing, and you’re sure to notice the framerate difference if you’re coming from other consoles, but performance-wise, it’s steady and perfectly playable.
Another bit that helps make Fornite's battle royale mode more enjoyable is that it isn't trying to constantly steer you into the act of gambling. There are no loot chests at the moment in the free battle royale mode, just a straight cosmetic shop, and it's further supported by a great (actual season) season pass concept that I've talked about at length in the past that grants you more goodies for leveling up during normal play.
Fortnite on Nintendo Switch is a well done port despite its graphical downgrades. It contains the same great Battle Royale gameplay the title is known for, and it's just as addictive and exciting as ever. Collecting materials, swapping out guns, and building forts never gets old, even though you are going to be dying a lot. If you have never played the game before, then this is the perfect time to give it a shot, especially since it's free to play.
