Fortnite Battle Royale Coming To Mobile Devices

The new free to play crafting survival battle royale mobile game FortCraft from NetEase has kicked off its beta test. Players can get their hands on the game on iOS and Android.

Despite what some accounts on Twitter and elsewhere seem to be suggesting, Epic Games hasn't sent out any invitations for the mobile version of Fortnite just yet. After the blog post of Epic games, Xbox owner Phil Spencer tweeted by saying that he wants to watch Xbox One and PS4 owners play the game online together.

The official Epic Games website already has a page listed where players should be able to sign up for Fortnite mobile, but as of the time of writing, the page results in a 404 Not Found error. Having played a round (and won, believe it or not), the game controls as well as any third-person shooter I've played on my iPhone 8. Sign-ups for the iOS version actually began today and reports say there were so many people attempting to sign up that the site crashed briefly.

Each email will come with a link to download the game, but the game's availability will be dependent on how the servers handle it.

Anybody who has played the game recently will notice that quite a large number of players have special outfits and emotes, meaning they've spent money on the game.




If you had told me when it launched after six years in development hell that Fortnite would become the biggest game in the world and playable on nearly everything apart from a potato, I wouldn't have believed. While there are still 100 players, being split into 20 teams of 5 makes squad mode a more forgiving and cooperative way to play Fortnite.

According to Microsoft representative, Sony is still not co-operating with Microsoft on the cross-platform play. The company did not state when exactly it will arrive for Android, except that it will be coming in the next few months, so Android gamers will have to sit this one out for now.

The game now is invite only for the iOS but you can get your invite by going Here.

In an email to Kotaku, a Microsoft representative stated, "Microsoft has always been a leading voice in encouraging the adoption of cross-platform play and the potential of connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles".

Anyway, here's what the Microsoft rep emailed to Kotaku: "Microsoft has always been a leading voice in encouraging the adoption of cross-platform play and the potential of connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles".
