Fortnite Battle Royale iOS and Android is Coming, Includes Cross Play

Yesterday was a crazy day for gaming news. First, Nintendo held their Direct and announced Smash Bros is coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime this year. Second, Valve revealed they are getting back into the game making business (thought they never really left). And last but certainly not least, Epic Games revealed that their mega popular Fortnite Battle Royale iOS and Android versions are coming soon. Update: codes for Fortnite Mobile are currently being sent out for the Invite Event on iOS.

News of the Fortnite Mobile version was announced over on Epic Games blog, and the reveal featured a number of interesting tidbits about what players can expect from the mobile versions. As the post highlights, Fortnite Mobile will be the same  “100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.” This should come as a relief to many as mobile games can often feel like stripped down versions of their console counterparts.

Besides assurance of quality, Epic Games also dropped a bit of a bombshell regarding Fornite Battle Royale iOS and Android. The mobile versions of the game will support Cross Play with PC and PS4 (no word on Xbox yet). This is a huge deal and could have a serious impact on gaming going forward. Epic addressed including Cross Play with this message:

We believe this is the future of games. The same game on all platforms. Console quality graphics and action. Play when you want, where you want.

Signing up for the invite portion of the release will begin on Monday, March 12 at for iOS devices. No word on Android invite only event yet.

Fortnite Battle Royale is currently available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
