Fortnite Coming to Mobile Platforms

While we'll have to wait to see when Fortnite: Battle Royale on mobile gets the exact same content as the other versions, mobile players will want to start keeping up with the updates the game gets.

Perhaps what's shocking is that Fortnite Battle Royale will support cross-platform play and cross progression.

Epic Games has announced that the hugely popular Fortnite is coming to iOS and Android devices in 2018. However, support for Android will take an extra few months. Those that are invited will also get friend codes invites that they're able to share with other players.

"We believe this is the future of games", said the development team.

For cross-platform play and progress, it is absolutely 100% possible for someone playing the desktop or PS4 version of the game to play with a mobile player.

It demonstrated as such, whether intentionally or not, midway through September 2017 at a time when the Fortnite Battle Royale mode was still exclusive to paying customers. The invite event will begin on Monday, March 12, and everyone can sign, for which soon after will receive an invite on their Email.

The popularity of Fortnite is precisely why the creators of PUBG are working hard on a new, smaller island map for their own PC-focused game, which will debut on its test servers next month. You'd have to imagine that console/PC players would have an advantage. Strangely, Xbox One cross play hasn't been confirmed. Starting Monday, you can sign up for the Invite Event on iOS. We know that Fortnite cross-play is possible between rival consoles, as a "configuration issue" temporarily enabled the feature a year ago. Despite being a mobile version, the upcoming release is expected to come with the same online experience that millions of people are enjoying right now. When it finally lands on Android, it will be game over.

Those selected should receive an email with a link to download the game from the App Store. With this being the case, players will be able to join up with friends across different devices in order to play with one another without being inhibited by not having the same piece of hardware.
