The multi-player survival shooter game, Fortnite Battle Royale, will be making its way to mobile devices per an announcement by developer, Epic Games, on Friday. And, the company promises it’ll be the same 100-player game, map, content, weekly updates, and all, that fans are used to on the PS4, XB1, PC, & Mac.
On top of this, a cross-play function will be available so that iOS, PC, Mac, and, later, Android users can squad up & play together across devices and with gamers on the PS4 or XB1. (PS4 & XB1 gamers will not be able to cross-play).
Those with qualifying iOS devices, who want to give the new mobile game a try, can sign-up for an “Invite Event” starting Monday, 3/12. Go to www.fortnite.com, if you’re interested. Those who make the cut will receive an e-mail with a code to download the game as well as codes to invite your friends!
If you don’t make it into the 1st group to play, don’t worry. There will be more chances to sign-up at a later date.
No word yet on exactly when the game will be made available to Android users.
It was announced a few days ago that Fortnite is now the most streamed & watched game on Twitch, recently surpassing PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds).
Check out a Trailer for the mobile game on the official YouTube channel for Epic Games.
UPDATE: The “invite event” is now over. All iOS users with compatible devices can now access the game.
