Fortnite Battle Royale Is Coming To Mobile Devices With Cross Play

The developer has plenty of experience on mobile, seeing how it co-developed the three Infinity Blade games with Chair Entertainment.

If you're not familiar with the battle royale concept, it's where you and a bunch of other players - 100, in the case of Fortnite - are dropped into a map and battle until there's only one person left.

"Starting Monday, March 12, sign-up at www.Fortnite.com for the Invite Event on iOS", says the Fortnite team.

Additionally, Cross Progression will feature across all platforms, meaning you'll have one Fortnite account which can be accessed across PC, Mac, PS4 and iOS. This means that users will be able to play the game with their friends regardless of which device they're playing on.

There is no mention of Xbox One cross play and it is unlikely that Epic will add this to the game. It will require a bit of a higher-end device, but it will offer the exact same game as on other platforms. It's a tense game with plenty of light-hearted moments and the cartoony graphics make it fun to watch and now, with the arrival of a mobile version, you never need to be far from the action. Given that Fortnite has a much more mobile friendly look and play-style, it's actually not that hard to imagine how such a mobile port might work. It's an interesting move from a console maker that continues to stand in the way of cross-console play between the PS4 and Xbox One or Switch. Support for an Android version is coming in a few month's time.




Those selected should receive an email with a link to download the game from the App Store. Plus, you'll get invite codes to share with friends.

Epic Community Manager Nick Chester clarified in a tweet that players will be able to opt into cross-platform matchmaking queues or stick with players on the same platform. Last year, PUBG Corp. announced that it partnered with Tencent to come up with a mobile version of the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in China. For now, plans are in motion to bring Fortnite Battle Royale to iOS.

The Fortnite iPhone release date is on Monday Match 12th, but only for people who get an invite.

If you want to spend money in Fortnite Battle Royale you can buy the Battle Pass.
