Cross-network play

Fortnite on Xbox One supports cross-network play, which means you can team up with and play against players on other networks such as Nintendo, PlayStation, or PC. To learn more about setting up your game to take advantage of cross-network play, see How do multiplayer and communication work for cross-network play?

Mouse and keyboard support

Fortnite on Xbox One supports the ability to play with a mouse and keyboard. Note that when using a mouse and keyboard on Xbox One, you’ll be placed in a game with other users who also chose mouse and keyboard as their control option. To enable your setup to use mouse and keyboard, see Mouse and keyboard support on Xbox One.

Note If you’re on a child account, you’ll also need to enable settings for cross-network play to use a keyboard and mouse while playing on Xbox One.
