'Fortnite Battle Royale' for iOS Coming, Invite Event Set for March 12

Fortnite To Have Another Battle Royale Mode For a Limited Time Jarren Navarrete

Epic never said exactly when the full version of the mobile game will release, or when it intends to enable cross-play support, but we probably won't be waiting too long.

But there is cross-platform play for PS4 owners, who can play with PC, iOS and Mac owners from Monday, March 12. On several levels, "Fortnite" is similar to "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" - often known as "PUBG" - which is another massively popular battle-royale style video game. One of the bigger changes is the way Battle Royale teams can now organize themselves into groups of 20.

We're going to clear all that up for you right now, right here. It'll be a limited number of players at first, but Epic has promised to add more player spots over the coming months. If you get an invite you will be able to invite friends. To take part in this whole thing, you'll have to have at least "an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 devices", running iOS 11. The Android version will be out at a later date.

Unfortunately for Android users, the answer to when will Fortnite be on mobile is less immediate. Be cautious of fortnite.apk files you find online claiming to offer you early access. Will this leave smartphone players at a disadvantage compared to console and keyboard-and-mouse players? Your progress will also sync across the platforms.

Epic Games recently announced that Fortnite is coming to mobile. Let us know in the comments.

What is the Fortnite App?

That means that for players both old and new will be able treated to the same gameplay, content, maps, and weekly updates as the console and PC versions. However, if you're playing on PlayStation 4 you don't need to pay for PS Plus in order to play, so you really can play for free. Further, Epic Games dropped no hint if they are planning to bring Fortnite Save the World to mobile.

It's safe to say that Fortnite is a cultural phenomenon at this point. Keep that in mind as you decide if this is a game for your kid to play.
