Epic Games is bringing Fortnite Battle Royale to mobile

Fortnight Battle Royale by Epic Games will be launched for both Android and iOS Mobile Version Announced with Cross-Platform Play with Nearly All Other Versions

To cut those off before the run wild, and to get that money for itself, Epic Games is announcing Fortnite Battle Royale for iOS and, soon, Android. There is a catch in the list as the game would support cross-platform between PC, PS4, Mac, iOS, and Android but Xbox One is not included in it.

The mobile version of "Fortnite Battle Royale" will include the same gameplay, maps, content and the same weekly updates.

Epic Games will also be opening an invite event for users on iOS devices on Monday, March 12.

"Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac".

The Fortnite Team says "We believe this is the future of games".

According to the studio, this mobile version of the game will make relatively few compromises in terms of translating the existing version of Battle Royale to mobile platforms.

Epic Games claims the mobile version of the game will bring "console quality graphics and action".




The ever-popular PUBG rival, Fortnite has grown in popularity since its release past year, it has reached 20 million players and is the most streamed game on Twitch beating even its rival.

Those chosen will receive an email with instructions on how to download the game to their device.

Over the next few months Epic Games will be gradually letting small numbers of people play the game via invite events. Anyone invited to the iOS version of the game will also receive a friend code to share with other players. Will this leave smartphone players at a disadvantage compared to console and keyboard-and-mouse players?

Epic Games did not give us an exact release for Fortnite: Battle Royale for Android.

Would you play Fortnite Battle Royale on mobile? But to clear up any confusion, think as Fortnite as two games. Players on PlayStation, PC and Xbox found themselves in the same matches over the course of a weekend, though the feature was later deactivated; Xbox and PlayStation tend not to let their player populations mix.

Two new environments were announced for 2018, with smaller 4x4km island design meant to deliver "a much more intense and fast-paced" experience, to go live on a new Experimental Test Server in April.

The absolute closest to the full PUBG experience for mobile, at least right now, is Rules of Survival.
