    Fortnite Switch can use voicechat with a standard 3.5mm headset.
    Yeah, no phone app bullshit required.

    So if it's possible.... why is Nintendo forcing this bullshit app on us?

    After hearing you can use voice chat without the stupid phone app, it's become that much harder..... but I'mma hold out for Atmosphere.

    Sony makes an exception for games that are either free2play or require a paid subscription (Final Fantasy 14).

    You know, maybe that would be a valid excuse to actually try the game now.

    Staggered release, different times for different countries, so they don't suddenly get DDoSed by new players :P

    4.1.0 here..... I really want to try it out (for the "first" time).

    I don't know I think I don't care about homebrew anymore... I have my wiiu/3ds for emulation. Since I'm definitely going to pay for everything on the switch, I don't think it's worth waiting....

    I've been downloading the game with an American account, and everything works very well. As for the EU release, I think it's set to be in a hour.

    Big problem though. If you linked your epic games account to a PS4 it is not usable on the switch. Giant kick in the nards

    That sucks if that’s true. Cross-Platform players have an advantage then.

    I confirm it's 30fps, not that bad though. I don't know about about the docked resolution as I don't really spend that many time playing docked myself however.

    Somewhere, over there!
    30FPS, lower resolution, gameplay feels like it does on the one. The 30FPS and lower graphics are noticeable, but gameplay remains unchanged.
