Epic Games has announced its free Fortnite Battle Royale mode will be available to play on both iOS and Android — and you'll be able to play with other players on other platforms.
Starting next Monday, March 12, interested players can sign up at Fortnite's official website for the iOS "Invite Event." Invitations via email will be sent out to players soon after, offering a link to download the game. Epic will be regularly inviting players to the game over the coming months. Support for Android platers will follow in the next few months, though no exact window is announced.
Fortnite Battle Royale is the same 100-player mode players already know, with Epic promising "same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates." It will also feature cross play and cross-progression between PS4, PC, Mac, iOS, and also on Android when the game comes to that platform.
The iOS Invite Event requires iOS 11 and at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad 2017 device. Anyone invited to the iOS version of the game will also receive a friend code to share with other players. No details about Android requirements have been announced.
Epic recently confirmed a 20-player squad mode is on the way.
Fortnite's patch V.3.1.0 brought the hunting rifle with it, and Epic also announced the addition of jetpacks. The title recently became the most-watched and most-streamed game on Twitch, with double the amount of PUBG's viewers on the platform. The popularity of the game has seen Fortnite streamers getting a huge bump in Twitch subscriptions, which has been attributed to Twitch Prime's free channel subscriptions.
Meanwhile, Season 3 is well under way and you can check out every new cosmetic item available right here.
