Also of note is the new cross-play support between PS4 and Xbox One users, as well as Nintendo Switch and mobile players. That system is now removed from the PS4 and Xbox One pools and put into the mobile pool.

Combined Xbox One and PS4 pools. If you opt out you can only play Playgrounds or Creative Mode, so keep that in mind. I honestly couldn't tell you if this new "Baller" vehicle is good because I, and everyone else I saw in one, was too busy larking about to play seriously.

Some Switch players may have felt at a disadvantage stacked up against players on other consoles or PC. With Switch's 30fps cap and the rival consoles' 60fps target, many felt it was an unfair experience.

Also it's worth noting that Fortnite is a big reason why Sony flipped their stance on cross-platform play, which makes the move to separate the consoles this feature applies to all the more unusual.
