'Fortnite Battle Royale' Heading To iOS, Android Mobile Devices

'Fortnite Battle Royale' Heading To iOS, Android Mobile Devices

The Fortnite app is a mobile version of Fortnite Battle Royale. That means you'll have the same gameplay, maps, content and updates as every other platform. Instead, regular batches of iOS users will gain access to the game as part of an invite event process, which starts Monday, March 12.

Epic Games has announced that it is developing a mobile version of Fortnite: Battle Royale, the free-to-play mode of the multiplayer sandbox survival game that is taking the world by storm. The good news is that if you've got a code, you'll be able to get friend invite codes to share with your squadmates on iOS before the game is officially launched. The Xbox One edition will not support the feature in the meantime, most likely due to Epic's deal with Sony.

However, if you would have told me before yesterday Fortnite: Battle Royale would be coming to mobile devices I would have called you a liar and not believed you. Technically this is Fortnite Battle Royale, but we're shortening it like most users do. That's to say a player using an Xbox will be able to play with another player using a mobile device, like a smartphone or tablet. It will require a bit of a higher-end device, but it will offer the exact same game as on other platforms.

Probably this news will make the developers of PUBG to accelerate their plans for making the game available on PS4 and, maybe, someday, mobile (read Android). It will be the entire game, according to Epic, the same one players are already participating in on PlayStation 4, XBox One, PC and Mac. Console quality graphics and action. One of those is that Fortnite for PC is not available on Steam, so you'll have to download it directly from Epic Games.

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

The announcement was made by the Fortnite Team on Epic's official website. You can check out the Fortnite game in the video above.
