However, Nintendo Switch users can still play the multiplayer game with other platform users.

The game was launched as free-to-play and it has still not switched to a paid one which is one of the reasons behind the game’s popularity. Fortnite directly competes against PUBG which sells for around Rs. 999 on Steam. PUBG is currently available only on Windows PC and Android devices.
