Epic Games announced yesterday evening one of its most popular games right now, Fortnite Battle Royale, is set to launch on iOS.
Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices! On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates. Starting Monday, you can sign-up for the Invite Event on iOS. Support for Android will be coming in the next few months.
The game on iOS will support Cross Play and Cross Progression between all supported platforms, with Android coming soon, which the company says “players across devices can squad up with friends and play together.”
The Fortnite Team says “We believe this is the future of games. The same game on all platforms. Console quality graphics and action. Play when you want, where you want.”
On Monday, March 12, an invite event for iOS is set to launch on the Fortnite.com, which will slowly roll out email invites with links to download the game from the App Store. Users who gain an invite will also have invite codes to share with friends.
Requirements for Fortnite Battle Royale on iOS? You will need a network connection, plus “iOS 11 on at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 devices.”
What has made Fortnite Battle Royale so popular? The game is free to play, but users can make in-app purchases to get bonus packs, limited-edition weapons, and more.
