Fortnite and Cloud Gaming: A Perfect Match

Despite being an avid user of cloud gaming services and platforms for three years now, I’ve never played one of the most popular games in the space: Fortnite. It’s a no-brainer that one of the world’s most played games is so popular, even in a niche market. Of course, one of the main reasons that I’ve never played Fortnite is that I prefer single-player and co-op experiences over competitive PvP action. That’s not to say that I didn’t think what Epic Games was doing was impressive. The sheer amount of content, updates, and even cameos and partnerships they were pulling off was making me think I was missing out.

As I said, I really enjoy games where I can play at my own pace. Even more if I can slowly grind and play with others against bots. PvE games are my bread and butter. For that reason, I decided to grab the Save the World pack and see how it played via the cloud. There are many ways to play Fortnite via the cloud. Mainly, there is Xbox Cloud, which can actually be played without a Game Pass Ultimate account. Of course, that alone will make it one of the most played games on the service. Of course, it also leads to waiting times when a big update launches. The same applies to GeForce NOW, but you might want to get a subscription to avoid long queues, though! I guess that Boosteroid users, and those who use services like airgpu and Shadow, have it way better.

Personally, I’ve been using my Amazon Prime membership to enjoy the game via Amazon Luna. Even though I am currently subscribed to Luna+, Prime members can play Fortnite at no additional cost. Since the visual quality is great and input latency is barely noticeable, it has become my primary way to play Fortnite on TV, mobile, or simply when I don’t feel like booting up my desktop computer. After all, that’s my main reason for being a cloud gamer fan: convenience.

And what about you? Have you played Fortnite via any cloud gaming service? I’d like to know, so feel free to add your comment below! As always, remember to follow us on our social media sites such as X (Twitter), Threads and Facebook to keep up with the latest news.
