With the recent announcement that the game is coming to iOS and Android devices, many players are wondering when will Fortnite be on mobile? A whopping 3.4 million people were playing the game concurrently at one point in February. Now I don't know who will have a fair advantage here, but it's fair to say PC will dominate the scene especially when you're on mobile. Though we haven't seen Fortnite's planned mobile control scheme yet, we'd imagine it will end up being a significant handicap compared to players with controllers or a mouse/keyboard setup.
An Android version is coming in the "next few months". Part of its success might be due to how approachable the game is and how accessible it is.
"The battle royale gets bigger with the latest LTM and hotter with the newest skin, Burnout".
If you're looking to give Fortnite: Battle Royale for iOS a shot before its public release, you'll need to sign up on the Fortnite site starting on Monday, March 12th, when invites will start rolling out. When a user is invited, they will receive an email that includes a link to download and install the game from the Apple App Store.
Fans can expect the full Fortnite Battle Royale experience.
Epic Games also promised that the mobile versions of Fortnite: Battle Royale will feature the "same gameplay, same map, same content, [and] same weekly updates" as their PC and console counterparts. It seems to be a bit of each, if we're being honest.
Announce the news earlier on today, a post on the Epic Games website revealed that Fortnite on the move will 'be the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac'. Originally Rules of Survival had massive multiplayer battle royale fights with 120 players, but now they have even more.
How are those swiping around on a touchscreen display supposed to compete with PC and console players? Further, users getting the invites will also get friend invite codes to share with friends. Will it be enough?
