Fortnite is coming to mobile and will support crossplay with PC

Mobile Version Announced with Cross Platform Play with Nearly All Other Versions- Fortnite

The mobile version of Fortnite, announced on Thursday by Epic Games, is ambitious: It'll feature the same 100-player battle royale gameplay that its console brethren is famous for (and which PUBG initially made a phenomenon). Recently taking to their blog, the developer stated that players can expect the exact same 100-player experience except on cellphones and tablets.

What most gamers are wondering about is gameplay; will it be the full version of Fortnite available on PC and consoles, or will it be a dumbed-down version of the game with basic mechanics and frustrating on-screen controls?

Epic Games have announced Fortnite Battle Royale is making its way to iOS and Android, with cross-play and cross-progression support. Epic Games didn't give out any more details regarding the Android version of "Fortnite Battle Royale". If accepted, players will be able to try out the game with friends, as invitees will also receive friend codes.

To participate you'll need to be in possession of one of the following iOS devices running iOS 11: iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017. If the game is going to support cross-play with the PS4 and PC, players on a touchscreen device are probably going to have a tough time competing.

Mario Tennis Aces arrives on June 22
Since it's inception on the Nintendo 64 in 2000, Nintendo has gone on to release seven games under the Mario Tennis name. Of course, you'll want to use these at the proper time, so you don't end up putting yourself in a last place position.

Prepare to lose your life to Fortnite: Battle Royale once it makes its way to mobile then.

For users who don't get the email, Epic says "If you don't receive an invite right away, don't worry". This will be a pretty big deal as players from the aforementioned platforms can finally play together.

Interested players must sign up for the invite-only event starting this Monday, March 12th. "Play when you want, where you want", certainly has a nice ring to it. No mention of the Xbox One, though, possibly due to the deal with Sony. Can't get home in time for the first match? 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.
