Epic Games has announced that Fortnite Battle Royale is coming soon to mobile devices.
Anyone interested in trying out the iOS version can sign up on the official Fortnite website starting Monday, March 12. That means you can play a game on your phone with your friends on PS4, PC, or Mac in completely different locations. Mad! A surprising and impressive new addition is that the game will support cross-platform play between PC, PS4 and the mobile platforms. This is all thanks to the game being free to play as well as being available on more platforms.
The ever-popular PUBG rival, Fortnite has grown in popularity since its release previous year, it has reached 20 million players and is the most streamed game on Twitch beating even its rival. Inside, you'll find a link to download the game at the App Store. The company says it will be adding players over "the coming months" so it sounds like this is still going to be very much in the trial phase. Further, users getting the invites will also get friend invite codes to share with friends.
With the growing popularity of Fortnite and the battle royale genre in general it's entirely possible we could hear about an announcement in the very near future. You'd have to imagine that console/PC players would have an advantage.
As mentioned earlier, Fortnite Mobile will be coming to iOS devices initially, while Android gamers should also be able join in on the action within months of release. But to clear up any confusion, think as Fortnite as two games.
"Fortnite Battle Royale" is heading to iOS device first and Android later.
The absolute closest to the full PUBG experience for mobile, at least right now, is Rules of Survival.
