For some Fortnite PS4 players this may be an interesting news. Especially for the players who have been using keyboard and mouse with the console. Epic Games made an announcement regarding Fortnite Matchmaking as a major change is coming very soon that may doom many console gamers.
In the announcement, it was revealed that the matchmaking changes will ensure that all keyboard and mouse players of the game are matched together in the same control scheme.
So when this update drops it will ensure that those PS4 users, who use a mouse and a keyboard, are only able to play against PC players and those using a mouse and keyboard on PS4.
To be honest, it is about time Epic Games is addressing this Fortnite Matchmaking issue and it definitely seems a good way to tackle the problem. Bringing such changes to Fortnite Matchmaking will surely ensure fair play and will definitely be a step towards a just competition. However, higher framerates on PC would be a disaster for those on PS4.
We have an upgrade to our matchmaking logic that will allow for a more even playing field when enjoying Fortnite with your input device of choice. In an upcoming release, we’ll be implementing input based matchmaking, which will pair you against players who are using the same peripherals (e.g. controller vs controller, KB+M vs KB+M).
Usage of same peripherals will not only ensure healthy matches but will also set an example for other games as well.
With all that said, although such Fortnite Matchmaking changes and improvement may come in handy, the bigger issue is still out there.
The threat of hackers selling personal data and log-ins on Dark Web. That is something which should be addressed first hand.
