Battle Royale Coming To iOS And Android — Fortnite On Mobile

Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices, Epic has announced. In the announcement, Epic Games made it clear that Android users will be able to play Battle Royale on their devices "in the next few months".

For those of you who don't know, Fortnite Battle Royale is a 100-person FPS free-for-all where you fight to be the last man standing.

In partnership with our friends at Sony, Fortnite Battle Royale will support Cross Play and Cross Progression between PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android. Both mobile versions will even be able to compete against one another. Some mentioned the conspicuous lack of Xbox in the cross play announcement, drawing parallels to other games that seem to lack the ability for Sony and Microsoft consoles to interact.

We believe this is the future of games. Console quality graphics and action. Fueled mainly by its free battle royale mode (the Save the World mode, in which you team with other players to kill monsters, now costs $40, £33 and AU$60), the game was reported last month to have hit 3.4 million concurrent players, beating PUBG's record of 3.2 million.

Those that want to participate in the upcoming tests can register on the game's official website.

Interested players must sign up for the invite-only event starting this Monday, March 12th. This seems more like a beta test of sorts than an official launch, so it's now uncertain when will Fortnite be on mobile for everyone.

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. This slow roll-out will take place over the coming months, the company has admitted, suggesting that it will be taking things slowly at first to ensure the launch goes as smoothly as possible.

Chinese internet firm Tencent, which has a 40% stake in Epic, had previously agreed domestic distribution for not only PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in China, but also two official mobile games which launched, in Chinese, in February 2018 for iOS and Android.
