Fortnite Is Coming To Mobile, Will Support Cross-Platform Play

You'll also be able to play with your friends on PC, PS4 and Mac (as well as Android when it becomes available) which is great but horrendous at the same time. Why?

Given the popularity of Fornite, which is the most popular Battle Royale game next to Player Unknown's Battlegrounds, this is a huge move on Epic's part and opens the already popular game up to a significantly wider audience. With invites being sent out in the near future, though, we will likely know soon enough.

As explained by Epic, those who sign up for the Fortnite Battle Royale Invite Event for iOS will receive email invites.

Allowing players from PC to compete with PS4 gamers was previously considered to be an unfair match. It will contain a link to download the game from the app store and then you can play. The latter is interesting, as Sony has demonstrated reluctance to support crossplay as a standard feature for all its games.

Not interested in playing "a stripped-down port" of Fortnite: Battle Royale? For all intents and purposes they are two separate games.

Nintendo wasn't the only ones with surprising news, Epic Games confirmed that Fortnite is coming to iOS and Android devices. This gives you new outfits, gliders, a pick axe, emotes and other items, all of which are cosmetic and will not affect gameplay in any way.

You need to be logged in to post a comment. When it finally lands on Android, it will be game over. It's a paid game but not almost as popular as it's Battle Royale spin-off. That would seem to put the non-mobile players at a huge advantage, given the controls, but at least it's an option. In other words, you'll be able to squad up with your favorite co-players across devices. Epic tends to update Fortnite on a weekly basis, and there's alsways something getting changes, some newly-introduced items, and limited-time game modes. Fortnite Battle Royale team has managed to convince to support Sony to accept the offer.

Not only will Fortnite's mobile-version content be in lockstep with its console brethren, but progress will carry across as well thanks to Epic's unified account system.

They include; improving weapon feel and accuracy, private matchmaking and the possibility of a new map.
