Fortnite On Mobile: Battle Royale Coming To iOS And Android

On top of the new content, Epic is bringing the wildly-popular free-to-play battle royale game to iOS and Android devices. Most intriguingly, this is apparently the same 100-player experience, and it will support cross-play for some systems.

Microsoft first announced support for cross-platform play at E3 2016, but Sony has resisted supporting PS4 vs. Xbox One gaming. The Xbox One edition does not support cross-play, presumably due to Epic's partnership with Sony.

Wrapping up a insane day for gaming that included a new Call of Duty, a sequel to The Division and confirmation that Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Switch, Epic Games surprised everyone on Thursday evening by revealing that multiplayer smash hit Fortnite Battle Royale is heading to iOS and Android.

"We believe this is the future of games". The event will be open to iOS users, but the game will be released for both iOS and Android platform. Console quality graphics and action.

This means that you will be able to keep your progress and your cosmetic items even when you switch to your #Mobile Device to play the game! "Play when you want, where you want", reads the statement from Epic Games. That sounds pretty cool, and it'll be interesting to see how it works in practice. PC and PS4 players, on the other side, won't be able to join mobile lobbies as it would give them an unfair advantage over other players.

iOS users can sign up to receive an invite to try out Battle Royale starting next Monday through the Fortnite website. "Email invites will start rolling out soon thereafter". More invites will be sent out over the coming months, so if you don't get in right away, you'll have more opportunities later. If you don't get an invite immediately, don't worry as there is a chance that you will get it later since Epic Games will keep adding more players over the upcoming months. When it comes to tablets, you will need either iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or any iPad device from 2017.

The beauty here is that not only will Battle Royale be coming to mobile, it will also allow mobile gamers to play against those using consoles or PCs.
