Fortnite On Mobile: Battle Royale Coming To iOS And Android

Mobile Version Announced with Cross-Platform Play with Nearly All Other Versions Fortnite is coming to mobile and will support crossplay with PC

Wrapping up a insane day for gaming that included a new Call of Duty, a sequel to The Division and confirmation that Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Switch, Epic Games surprised everyone on Thursday evening by revealing that multiplayer smash hit Fortnite Battle Royale is heading to iOS and Android.

An Android version is coming in the "next few months". Epic Games claims that Fortnite will boast the "same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates".

It's also reported that Fortnite Battle Royale on mobile will eventually support cross-play and cross-progression between the PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS, and the Android versions of the game. Both mobile versions will even be able to compete against one another.

In December it launched on Xbox One and by February 2018 its Chinese distribution partner Tencent was overseeing the release of not one but two official Chinese-language mobile phone adaptations for iOS and Android. Ultimately, we're all just going to have to wait and see, as Fortnite doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, and Epic Games seems determined to come after all your free time. Epic not only makes games but also an entire game development suite, the Unreal Engine, and has long had the ability to implement cross-platform play across multiple hardware configurations. "Play when you want, where you want".

Those that want to participate in the upcoming tests can register on the game's official website.

You'll be able to sign up starting Monday, March 12th for the Invite Event on iOS. Invites will be rolling out over the coming months. If you do get in, you'll get codes to share with friends, so that's good.

After a slow start in its original form, Fortnite debuted its more competitive "Battle Royale" mode in September and quickly surged to a massive 40 million downloads as of January. This seems more like a beta test of sorts than an official launch, so it's now uncertain when will Fortnite be on mobile for everyone. The mobile build will require you to have iOS 11 installed on one of the following devices: iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017.
