    If its not coming today, its coming very soon for Switch.

    I've made a Discord for anyone on AVF that wants to sign up and arrange matches for voice chat etc...

    Discord - Free voice and text chat for gamers

    See you on the Battle Bus!

    I'm gonna bet they announce it and then have a "it's available in the eShop at the very end of this presentation". So it probably will be available in the next 2 hours.

    100 players get dropped unarmed on an island (from a sky bus... dont ask). You then search houses/buildings etc to find weapons, ammo, armour.

    Its then a fight to the death!

    Pretty much everything is destructable and gives resources, you can use the resources to build walls, ramps, floors etc - so you can basically build small forts for yourself or build a ramp into the sky etc.

    Its very fun to play, rounds are over pretty quickly so if you die its quick to get back into another.

    You can play solo vs 99 others, teams of 2/3/4 too (which is where the lack of voice chat lets Switch down).

    They also run limited events, like 20vs20vs20vs20vs20 and 50vs50 modes

    You collect XP for each battle and then that unlocks new cosmetic stuff in the game. You can also buy "V-Bucks" to use in the game for cosmetics.

    Finally, though the game is free, you can buy a "Battlepass" which lets you level up quicker, get certain cosmetics quicker etc.

    Jump out of a flying bus, then desperately look for a weapon before getting killed by someone you didn't see! Or drop out of a flying bus, find a ton of weapons and armour and spend then next 15 minutes looking for someone to shoot. Before getting killed by someone you didn't see. It's good fun though.

    Apparently anyone who has made an Epic account for the PS4 version won’t be able to use that account for this version.

    A shame. Can’t be arsed to create a new account so it’s a pass from me.

    I see in an odd development that fortnite uses the switch hardware for voice chat....not an app

    Just plug headphones with a mic into the headphone jack.

    Just confirmed on Nintendo's stream.

    Functionality activating on Thursday.
