Fortnite is coming to mobile, as if it wasn’t addictive enough

Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices.

On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.

 Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates. 

Starting Monday, users can sign-up for the Invite Event on iOS. 

Support for Android will be coming in the next few months.

In partnership with Sony, Fortnite Battle Royale will support Cross-Play and Cross Progression between PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android. 

This means players across devices can squad up with friends and play together.

When users are invited, they will receive an email with a link to download the game from the App Store. 

Players who receive invites from Epic will also get friend invite codes to share with others. 

To participate, users will need an internet connection and iOS 11 on at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 devices.
