Nintendo Switch Fortnite Problems. There are two major Nintendo Switch Fortnite Problems so far. Unfortunately you cannot do much to fix these on your own. That said, you should be aware of the issues and what is happening. The biggest issue is a problem for PS4 players who cannot bring their Epic account from PS4 to the Nintendo Switch The other big problem with Fortnite on the Switch is that it’s not optimized well for some players. If you see lots of pop in or even a “software closed because an error occurred” message you will need to wait for an update to the game or to the Nintendo Switch servers. How to Fix Other Fortnite Problems. There are many other Fortnite Battle Royale problems that you may run into.
For those that missed the Nintendo E3 conference, Fortnite Battle Royale is now playable on the Switch. It’s great news for both fans and Epic Games on a number of fronts. Finding people to fill the 100 needed for each match would be a tall order for a game that wasn’t as popular as Fortnite. However, if things do start to wane, Epic Games have made it possible for most players on each platform to join each others servers. This should keep the numbers good for the foreseeable future, although there are some drawbacks.
players can team up with other gamers on Xbox One, PC and Mobile, but they can’t join those on PS4. This is the same for Xbox One, while PS4 players are also barred from joining up with players not on PC and Mobile. The good news for Switch fans, as long as you’ve linked your Switch account to your Epic Games account, you can crossplay with PC, Mac, Xbox and Mobile players. This also means that all purchased content will be present and all progress will be recorded across Xbox, Switch, PC, Mac, and Mobile.
The one massive drawback though is that players who have a PSN linked account can’t switch over to the new Nintendo platform. This means they can’t keep their progress on one account and don’t have access to the cosmetic bought on PS4. This extends to anyone who has ever logged in with the same account on a PlayStation 4 console.
And there isn’t anything you can do about it now, with Epic accounts now locked with those specifications until further notice. If you do try this, an error message from Epic Games pops up, explaining: “This Fortnite account is associated with a platform which does not allow it to operate on Switch.
“Neither the Fortnite website nor Epic Customer Service are able to change this. To play Fortnite on Switch, please create a new account.” These problems could be solved in the future, although that seems very likely at the moment due to Sony’s current policy on crossplay. Epic Games have provided a guide on how to operate your crossplay options on the Nintendo Switch, and can be found below: I’m on Switch - how do I squad-up with a friend on PC, Mac, Xbox or iOS?
• Link your Switch account to an Epic Games account. • Download the Epic Games Launcher on PC or Mac, or if you have an invite, download the game on iOS/Xbox. • Add your friend from within the Epic Games Launcher, the game on PC or Mac, or the game on iOS/Xbox.
• Select Duos or Squad mode. • Tell your friend to join your party. I’m on Mobile, Xbox, PC or Mac - how do I party up with a friend on Switch? • You will have to become friends on PC, Mac, Xbox or Mobile first. • The Switch player then needs to be in a non-solo queue and have the game privacy setting set to either “public” or “friends”. • This will allow you to join your Switch friend’s lobby to squad up.
best cod mw3 matchmaking problems on fortnite nintendo switch - E3 2018: Fortnite Switch Runs Into Problems Right Away [Update]
Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 3 online matchmaking problem Limited to unsupported Live regions only? 13/12/2011 Senior Staff Writer Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 3 online matchmaking won't work properly in countries not supported by Xbox Live. PC and PS3 versions appear to have no such problem. The official Twitter account told Croatian blogger that, "COD: MW3 multiplayer online is only accessible if you're in an eligible Xbox Live region." Croatia is not an .
Infinity Ward creative strategist offered a similar explanation, although hinted there may be more to it. He told Twitter user Victor Bilan that, "With matchmaking you must look at more variables than just game code, especially when only impacting only certain regions." "Regretfully no ETA at this point," he added, on the topic of a fix. "It's something actively being discussed and investigated. Talking to users being affected." However, such a fix wasn't on the list of being addressed and/or discussed at Infinity Ward that Robert Bowling shared last night.
Blogger John385 claimed the Modern Warfare 3 matchmaking system was weighted to prioritise local players when searching. He then alleged that problems weren't restricted to unsupported Xbox Live regions; he said he'd heard similar reports from Malaysia, Norway, Portugal, Creece, Cyprus and Finland. The has a long thread of people sharing their online matchmaking problems. The thread, incidentally, was started by Robert Bowling.
But Eurogamer Norway told us it was yet to have any such problem come to its attention. has supplied a video of the specific problem he, in Croatia, experienced. Eurogamer has asked Activision for clarification, but has yet to hear back. Until we do, we'd like to ask you if you've experienced any of the same problems or have any helpful information you'd like to share.

Well, that isn't the rumour we were hoping to hear in the runup to the official reveal of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 in May, and its eventual release in October. According to Gaming Intel, Call of Duty is coming to Nintendo Switch, but not in the way you might be expecting. Turns out the handheld is getting the yet-to-be-announced Battle Royale version which is said to be replacing the single-player campaign on other consoles and PC.
This is reportedly a completely separate game that will bundled with other platforms at launch. So that's no single-player, no Zombies and no multiplayer mode. If you're a fan of Fortnite and PUBG and you've been waiting for a proper BR title on Switch, then this news will make you very happy.
For everyone else hoping to get the full COD experience, it's a bit of half-hearted celebration. This is a rumour, after all, so COD might not be coming to Switch in any capacity, and we won't know much more until the community reveal on 17th May. • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Haven’t brought CoD since the launch of WiiU and it was that game that made me turn my back on the franchise.
This announcement is not going to encourage me to return to the franchise. Why oh why can’t they just give Switch owners the same as every other console: Single player campaign, multiplayer, zombies and access to any DLC.
• • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 I don't think a single player campaign matters for shooters anymore. The last decent story for a shooter was... it was... Yes! I enjoyed Titanfall 2 But even that, with the best story ever for a modern shooter, failed. I spent most of my shooting hours on Black Ops 3 in multiplayer (never finished the single player mode), over 200 hours so, I don't think it's needed anymore.
Just give us better multiplayer and let Indie games keep our single-player dreams alive. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 No thanks. After seeing the effort that Panic Button has put into their releases, and knowing that games like South Park: FBW provide the whole experience, I will not support gimped, half-arsed efforts like FIFA 18 and (presumably) this.
COD wouldn’t be the only FPS on Switch. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Hmmm... I’m going to take this with a grain of salt for now. I guess it would be better than nothing, but I would hope it comes with the campaign.
It seems to weird to have a Battle Royale Mode and not regular multiplayer. Granted, people might be more willing to buy just the Battle Royale Mode rather than just regular multiplayer... I’m not sure, it depends on the price. Kind of random, but I wonder if it being Battle Royale only would affect the ESRB rating, it’s not really important, but I know people would lose there minds if we got a Teen rated Call of Duty game. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 normally you would be right but I don't care about the shitty story mode in FIFA or CoD lacking in a switch version, if I want a great story mode I grab a Zelda game or Uncharted for example.
It would be worse if such games lacked multiplayer, but lacking story mode is fine, less wasted space on a cartridge for mediocre "story". • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 It's funny, it's just really funny because the developers are probably thinking "Well players on Nintendo consoles never buy our games so we shouldn't bother putting the effort into giving them a full, proper game like we do for every other console on the market." When it's exactly that reasoning that keeps me from buying their games.
If they just put the effort into making a proper game that aligned with every other console version (doesn't have to be as graphically fantastic since I know the switch isn't as powerful) then I'd really consider buying it.
• • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Seeing the Switch is a portable most of the time for most people, what's the point of an online shooter you can't get online with while you're on a bus/plane/public toilet? I have no problem with games X, Y, and Z coming to the Switch, but I think you have to play to it's strengths as a handheld device or not play at all.
• • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 4G tends to be fine for multiplayer sessions and doesn't eat much traffic - and I'm talking the still rough 4G we Belarusians have had for a couple years, so the first world shouldn't be any worse in that regard.
From Smash and MK7 to Splatoon 2 and ARMS demo events, I've played online exclusively outside with maybe one or two hiccups (the only exception so far is PSO2, but it's reportedly crowded and demanding to begin with), and I think the potential of portable online gaming on Switch is somewhat underestimated.
• • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Not interested. I'm only ever interested in single player experiences with FPS far more interesting. With the occasional Deathmatch on the side which is nice. This if true, sounds like a proper cop out. Not supporting that. Besides Crazy Justice is coming to Switch if you want a Fortnite/Battle Royal fix. Valve should do a Half-Life 2 port for Switch with Episodes 1 & 2 included...
that would be epic and fun. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Honestly? If the price changes accordingly, I might bite. These "campaigns" were always too militaristic to my taste and as for deathmatch I'd rather play an arena shooter. A Battle Royale experiences with Activision's polish behind it is the only interesting thing this series can offer me at this point.
• • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Here is a rumor I hope is very in-accurate. When I said I wanted a separate Call of Duty game, built specifically for the Switch, I wanted a separate Call of Duty game. Full thing, campaign, multi-player Zombiees. The Switch is more powerful than PS3 or Xbox 360 and those systems had about 287 COD titles and COD clones.
Activision could easily make a decent COD title for Switch and it would run well if built for the system. I don't want some Fortnite or PUBG rip-off with the COD name taped on. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 You'd be surprised. People value single player a lot, especially if the franchise had it before. Notice how multiplayer only games are usually a little cheaper, like Overwatch being $40 (+ lootboxes) instead of standard $60 (+ season pass)?
Titanfall 2 was received much better due to the single player campaign. CoD not having a single player campaign feels like something was taken away. Publishers like declaring single player dead, they've been doing it for a decade or more now.
And then Bethesda continues to prove them wrong. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Another COD rumour? Want last year's supposed to be coming to Switch, then this year's, now just one mode? Shame for Switch if it doesn't get one as it's a big name, although it's highly unlikely many of the existing COD userbase would buy it on Switch. Personally I'd like to see the MW remasters make it across, no interest in the multiplayer and the GAAS obsession.
• • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Why can't it come with at least zombies? That'd like one of my favorite modes. Why do they have to half-arse everything？ If there isn't all the modes from the PS4 and Xbox One onto the Switch, I ain't buying. Battle royal is fun, but I'll just wait for Pubg or Fortnite for that. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 I don't have an internet connection at home so this wouldn't be for me.
Not sure what to make of this. We do have enough FPS's on Switch now and while I do like them somewhat its not like I need every one. I also think the battle royale is peaking now, will fade in the near future. Lightly disappointed but I'm over it. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 The lack of a COD campaign this year is laughable. I'd actually be interested in COD Battle Royale if it's priced appropriately.
If it's not coming to Switch, then hopefully they release a standalone version on PS4/XBO/PC. Based on the same rumors who leaked the lack of a campaign this year, it seems like Black Ops 4's multiplayer will be a hot mess.
• • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Oh, man. One day, we'll be looking back at this, and we'll crack a smile or two about how silly it all was... " Remember that day? The day when the tagline/byline under an NLife article about a rumor concerning a COD game for the Switch was actually greater and more entertaining than the actual rumor itself?" Well played, .
Well played... On a side note: people not caring about game X or Y again? Tssss.... People, PLEASE remember the other gamers/Switch owners of the world, who might just have a slightly different taste from yours, and who might actually be waiting for titles like these.
And please keep in mind that your opinion is not the only one that matters and that it is good in general for a gaming platform to get as many games and as wide a diversity in game types as possible, so even if YOU don't like a certain game, you should still welcome it to the Switch, because it's only a positive thing.
And ultimately, it means even more games, amongst which there will definitely also be some more titles that you actually WILL like... Let everyone have their fun and their games, even if you don't happen to like them, okay? Wonderful! Happy gaming to everyone. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 Not really though. Yes it is in the same hardware generation but it is a totally different type of device. The simple fact is it is not nearly as powerful as PS4 or Xbone.
And why should it be? Both of those devices are physically much much larger and not portable. In terms of power the Switch lies between last gen and this gen due to its portable nature. Activision could easily work with that and build a COD game specific to Switch that runs beautifully with the resources the system has to offer. My assumption is that they wont, because that requires actual effort on their part and they aren't used to do that anymore.
They are used to reskinning the same games every year and calling it new. • • • • Tue 24th Apr 2018 I have no problem with games X, Y, and Z coming to the Switch, but I think you have to play to it's strengths as a handheld device or not play at all Precisely. I would have bought CoD for the single player campaign. But they are done with single player campaigns now. They're going to get gobs of sales and don't have to waste the effort developing a campaign. Can just do a bunch of maps together and slap a $60 price tag on it, a $100 price tag, and a $250 price tag, and then slap another $60 on for the season pass.
Which means I'm just not interested. Certainly not interested on a hybrid system. Theres simply no benefit, and plenty of downsides. Play to its strength.
Online only games can work on the system but, the only ones people will likely be interested in are ones they cannot play anywhere else. But any multiplatform titles of online focused games... I don't think it's a good idea to bring them to Switch. I think 90% of the games out there would be a great fit, but there are that 10% that simply aren't.
Online only multiplats account for most of them •
