Epic Games has a hit on their hands with Fortnite and they’re doubling down to make sure that they can get it into the hands of as many people as possible. Literally.
Epic revealed today that Fortnite Battle Royale will soon be coming to mobile devices. Yes, the same Battle Royale experience that you’ve had on consoles and PC will soon be coming to your phone and tablet. Details are still sparse at the moment but Epic says that it will still be the same 100-person fight to the death you’ve come to expect with the same island, same gameplay, and weekly updates.
Starting this Monday, iOS users will be able to sign up for the Invite Event of Fornite Battle Royale. Android users, on the other hand, will be left out in the cold and will have to wait a few months before seeing the game head their way.
Perhaps the craziest part of this entire announcement though is that Epic Games says that Fortnite Battle Royale players will be able to team up with one another across PC, Mac, iOS, and yes, even PS4. Sony has given Epic the green light to allow players on their console to team up with a friend who may only have the game on a mobile device. Pretty crazy.
If you’re looking to enter the iOS Invite Event, then make sure you sign up on the official Fortnite website this Monday, March 12 to be entered. You will need an iOS 11 on at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 devices in order to play on your device.
For further details, stay tuned until Monday as Epic promises to share more information at that time.
