Fortnite On Mobile: Battle Royale Coming To iOS And Android

Fortnite Battle Royale

Well, this is a weird one: Epic have announced that Fortnite's behemothic Battle Royale mode will soon be playable on iOS with an Android version, the shock of shocks, to follow afterwards.

An authentic mobile port for Fortnite: Battle Royale makes sense as the market of potential players on consoles and gaming PCs starts to get saturated.

To answer the question of when will Fortnite be on mobile, we need to simply look at what Epic Games has said on its official website.

Fortnite Battle Royale is a 100-player game in which you play solo or as teams, and parachute onto an island to fight other players until only one of you is left standing. That means you can play a game on your phone with your friends on PS4, PC, or Mac in completely different locations. Mad!

"We believe this is the future of games", the developers wrote on their blog. The same game on all platforms.

Fortnite Battle Royale

If you ask gamers and game developers what's the hottest title around these days, they'd most likely answer one of two titles: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale. We'll be adding more players regularly over the coming months. Invite codes will be provided for you to send to others. The game requires iOS 11 and at least an iPhone 6S, iPhone Se, iPad mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and 2017 iPad.

But now Fortnite has taken it up a notch with the latest v3.2 patch update for Battle Royale, which was released early Thursday morning. Android support is on the way in the next few months. Your roommate plays it, you hear your boyfriend talk about it with his buddies or maybe you played it once at a friends' house.

Likewise there are no details as to when the game will roll out completely across mobile devices.

For the uninitiated, "Fortnite" is a cooperative survival game.

And the best thing is, the game won't differ from its desktop/console counterparts. 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.
