Fortnite Battle Royale Is Coming To Mobile Devices With Cross Play


'Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices!

Epic Games announced yesterday evening one of its most popular games right now, Fortnite Battle Royale, is set to launch on iOS.

What most gamers are wondering about is gameplay; will it be the full version of Fortnite available on PC and consoles, or will it be a dumbed-down version of the game with basic mechanics and frustrating on-screen controls? The developer has plenty of experience on mobile, seeing how it co-developed the three Infinity Blade games with Chair Entertainment.

Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to Android and iOS.

Even so, translating a game like that to mobile is not an easy task.

To participate in the invite test, users must have compatible Apple devices running iOS 11. Sony has said it doesn't allow cross-play for games like Minecraft and Rocket League due to the risks posed to younger players. There is no information if the Xbox consoles will also support crossplay.

If you're looking to give Fortnite: Battle Royale for iOS a shot before its public release, you'll need to sign up on the Fortnite site starting on Monday, March 12th, when invites will start rolling out. And it would seem that for most players, this is enough.

Those chosen will receive an email with instructions on how to download the game to their device. What this means is you and your friends can play together regardless of the device they're using. Users who gain an invite will also have invite codes to share with friends.

Best thing is, the mobile versions of the game will support cross-play and cross-progression between all platforms that the game will be eventually available on - PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.

"Battle Royale" puts a twist on its 100-player antics with a Teams of 20 mode. Last year, PUBG Corp. announced that it partnered with Tencent to come up with a mobile version of the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in China.

"Fortnite Battle Royale" is heading to iOS device first and Android later. Can't get home in time for the first match?
