Battle Royale Coming To iOS And Android — Fortnite On Mobile

With literally billions of potential players to be found exclusively on such mobile devices, Fortnite could help pave the way for other major 3D games to make the leap to a mobile market that is often unjustly seen as an indie-and-puzzle game backwater.

The iOS version of Fortnite Battle Royale will be hitting live status on Monday.

Earlier this week a mum in the United Kingdom criticised the influence Fortnite: Battle Royale had had on her 10-year-old son, saying that her his obsession with the game had led to changes in his behaviour. You'd have to imagine that console/PC players would have an advantage.

The announcement was made by the Fortnite Team on Epic's official website.

There are no screenshots or explanation about how the game will feel on mobile, but Epic Games will be rolling out the first round of email invites on 12 March (which should be 13 March for us).

Even when Fortnite Mobile initially launches in the next few months, it'll be iOS only while the developers put the finishing touches on the Android variant. Support for an Android version is coming in a few month's time. If you are one of the lucky ones to try it out early, you will be able to share the love with friend codes to give out. Apple users will need an internet connection, obviously, and iOS 11 on at least the iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad 2017 devices. The game will arrive to iOS devices first, while the Android version will be released at a later date. There are also Weekly Challenges for those that own the Battle Pass, rewarding constant play with unlocks such as items, emotes and more.

Allowing players from PC to compete with PS4 gamers was previously considered to be an unfair match. Your progress will also sync across the platforms. It will require a bit of a higher-end device, but it will offer the exact same game as on other platforms. The only main difference is that you have to control the game using a touch screen! Your parents old phone won't be enough to play this one. So, it was logical to come up with games like Fortnite Mobile. Is there a chance of Fortnite coming to the Nintendo Switch?

Is Fortnite Safe For Kids?

Because Fortnite: Save The World itself is not free. The building element may sound like Minecraft, but this is still a shooter.

Fortnite on consoles is rated Teen for violence. Part of its success might be due to how approachable the game is and how accessible it is. There is no in-game offensive language. A whopping 3.4 million people were playing the game concurrently at one point in February. What will in-app purchases look like? The Battle Pass now costs 950 V-Bucks, which is $9.50 or £7.99 in real money. You should get involved. However, PUBG's mobile has grown immensely popular in China.

With Rules of Survival, you'll drop into 8 x 8 km island and enjoy basically everything you love in PUBG. It's a paid game but not almost as popular as it's Battle Royale spin-off. Developer Epic has just updated the map to add more locations, including a new city and mines and showing more love to the Western portion of the map in general.
