Announcing Fortnite Battle Royale for Mobile

By The Fortnite Team

 

Hey Fortnite Community,

 

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.

In partnership with our friends at Sony, Fortnite Battle Royale will support Cross Play and Cross Progression between PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android. This means players across devices can squad up with friends and play together.

 

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.

 

Sign-Up Monday to join the Invite List

 

Starting Monday, March 12, sign-up at www.Fortnite.com for the Invite Event on iOS. Email invites will start rolling out soon thereafter. When you are invited, you will receive an email with a link to download the game from the App Store. If you don’t receive an invite right away, don’t worry. We’ll be adding more players regularly over the coming months. Players who receive invites from Epic will also get friend invite codes to share with others. To participate, you will need an internet connection and iOS 11 on at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 devices.

 

Stay tuned for more details on Monday. See you on the Battle Bus,

 

Fortnite Team

Umm, how is this going to work? My laptop has better specs than my phone and Fortnite barely ran on (what I assume were) very low settings. How is that going to work for the phone? And also, aren't PC players are going to have an edge given the keyboard and mouse input?

A bit light on the details right?

 

It could be a streaming thing where all the apps do is use the power of the cloud :p 

 

It's the only way that

They are "blocking" Microsoft. Not Cross-play. A big difference and we know the reason why. Business.

Fortnite on mobile: it works!

 

By Christian Donlan Published 16/03/2018

I have Fortnite on my iPhone SE. The complete thing? Well, the Battle Royale part, anyway: the part that is currently taking over the world. And it works! It works surprisingly well. It's a little more basic to look at and I'll need a while to get properly comfortable, but I suspect Fortnite might well conquer the touchscreen much as it's conquered everything else.
