Fortnite Battle Royale Coming To Mobile Devices, Will Feature Crossplay With Everything But Xbox One
Epic Games dropped some rather big news a few hours ago when it announced that the full Fortnite Battle Royale experience would soon be available on mobile devices, starting with iOS and later Android. That gets even more exciting because Epic intends to implement Crossplay between all platforms except Microsoft's Xbox One (probably due to policy conflicts).
Fortnite Battle Royale for iOS will get an invite event and you can sign up for it on the official website starting next Monday.
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.
