The ever so popular, free to play, Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to a mobile device near you! The developer behind the hit game, Epic Games, has announced it is developing a mobile version of the hit game. It sounds as if it will be hitting Apple devices first, with Android to follow. Registration has opened to play the beta version on the iOS, via this link. Dates & timings of said beta have not been confirmed, you just need to wait for the email to arrive in your mail box. Fear not Android users, you can also leave your email address with Epic and they will contact you when registration is open.

“We will send you an email invitation with a link to download the game from the App Store, as soon as you can play. New invites will roll out as the servers can handle more players. Thanks for your patience! We expect to rollout Android in the next few months. If you are on an Android device, please sign up by clicking the button above. We’ll notify you when your Android device is supported.”

It’s not the first time a major title has released a mobile version, but it’s never quite the same. The development team at Epic have informed us that the mobile version will be the same 100 player battle royale, seen on the PS4 & Xbox, the same gameplay, same map, same content and same weekly updates. That’s what you want to hear!

Even though the Android version will arrive some months later, both mobile versions will be cross platform, including the ability to maintain progression across platforms, with PC, Mac & PS4. We all have friends who think Android is the best thing since sliced bread, so it’s nice that us iOS fans can take them on & beat them at Fortnite mobile.

“We believe this is the future of games,” the developer wrote. “The same game on all platforms. Console quality graphics and action. Play when you want, where you want.”

Epic have also stated that mobile users will have the choice to opt into PS4 & PC matchmaking queues, but PS4 & PC players can jump into mobile queues. It sounds a little confusing but if they get the cross platform right, it can only be a good thing.

Registration is now open, hit the link above, sign up and we’ll meet you on the battle field!
