No Nintendo Switch Online subscription needed to play Fortnite

Fortnite fans rejoice, Nintendo has officially confirmed that you will NOT need a paid Switch Online subscription to play your beloved game, so you can save that £17.99 for something much more important, like V-Bucks for example.

You WILL, however, need a subscription to play most other titles – including Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros, so it’s a bit of a strange one that you won’t need one for Fortnite. Maybe Nintendo have struck a deal with Epic, or maybe it’s because it’s an online only game – who knows, and it doesn’t really matter, does it?

You also don’t need a PSN subscription to play Fortnite on the Playstation, and of course you don’t need a paid subscription to play on the PC or on mobile, that just leaves one platform that you do in fact need a paid subscription to play – yes, we’re looking at you Microsoft/Xbox.

Even though you don’t need a Switch subscription, you might want to consider getting one anyway because it does come with some cool features, including cloud saves for games that support it – check out the trailer for the service below:
