Fortnite Battle Royale is a game of Epic Games released for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac in mid 2017 and this year is coming to mobile devices. Fortnite is a member of the burgeoning Battle Royale genre that pitts hundreds of players against each other in online multiplayer matches. You can play as an individual or join a team of up to four. The goal is to be the last person or group standing. Fortnite is free and it has become a hit in the transmission services of games like Twitch. Now, these are mobile devices and players can enjoy cross-play and cross-progression between Android devices, iOS, consoles and PC.
If you do not have a computer, you can play against your friends who prefer the console and then switch to your mobile when you have to play outside the home. Although PS4 and Xbox One will be able to cross play with other devices, they will not be able to play each other. Drake and Tyler Blevins recently showed cross-game capabilities by streaming their PC and PlayStation games together on Twitch.
Fortnite on mobile devices is beginning to flourish as a way to play the game and when it launches on Android in mid-2018, even more people will be able to access it. We will continue to receive updates as more features and availability are announced.
You can play the whole game from a mobile device, this is the complete experience of Fornite Battle Royale, only on a mobile device. Obviously there are some small differences: it is not as visually accomplished as in more powerful devices, the controls are tactile and many visual audio signals have been made so that you can play comfortably in public without the need for headphones. But you will not miss any feature.
At the moment, the Bluetooth driver is not compatible, but Epic has said it will be included in the next few months.
How to play Fortnite on iOS
iOS devices will be the first to be able to test Fortnite, but access is by invitation only at this time. Despite this, it is already the number one downloaded iPhone game in the US. You can register on the official website and Epic is sending invitations constantly to those who have done so.
To play Fornite on iOS you will need an iPhone SE or a newer version for mobile devices or an iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4 or iPad 2017 to play on the tablet. When you receive your invitation you only have to activate your account and log in to the application. Not everyone will receive an invitation as soon as they sign up, Epic has already said that they will implement them constantly so that their servers can be updated to cope.
How to play Fortnite on Android
Epic Games has confirmed that Fortnite will come to Android in the summer (or winter for the Southern Hemisphere). No specific date has been given, but that is really only a matter of a few months.
