Fortnite Battle Royale Heading to Mobile, Features PC, PS4, & Xbox One Cross-Play
Hop on the Battle Bus.
Fortnite players, be ready to take the fight on the go. Yup, that's right, Android and iOS users will be able to play Fortnite on their incredibly handy portable multifunctional devices, and iOS users will be able to sign up starting today.
Android and iOS players will be able to enjoy the full Fortnite 100 player Battle Royale experience says Epic, and it'll feature the "same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates" seen on the PC, PS4, and Xbox versions, which is nice to hear. The game will arrive on Android "in the next few months".
If you'd like to get involved with Fortnite on iOS, you'll need to sign up to Epic's Invite List via the official website. A number of those who registered will be invited to play the game soon after, and additional invites will be sent out regularly over the coming months, containing a download link to the App Store. These invitees will receive codes to share with their friends as well; after all, sharing is caring.
To play Fortnite on iOS, you'll need an internet connection (of course), iOS 11 and have an iPhone 6S / SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or higher.
This cross-play business means that PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, iOS, & Android (at some point) will be able to team up and play together. In the link above, Epic didn't mention Xbox One, which made gamers panic that their system was being left out. Epic has clarified that Xbox One players are indeed included in cross-play.
"We're happy to announce today that in partnership with our friends at Microsoft, Fortnite will feature cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase, between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, and (in the next few months) Android", the Fortnite team announced - note that PS4 and Xbox One gamers can't play together.
"Contrary to what have may been implied, Microsoft has long been a leading voice in supporting cross-platform play, connecting players across PC, mobile, and all consoles. We've been working together with them over the last several months to make this possible, and will bring this functionality to Fortnite players on Xbox right along with other platforms".
