Epic announces Fortnite Battle Royale mobile port

Epic Games also revealed that it will be partnering with Sony to provide Fortnite Battle Royale fans with Cross Play and Cross Progression support between PS4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android.

"Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates", a post on Epic's site read.

Over the next couple of months Epic Games will be letting small batches of players join the game as part of an invite event process that will open up starting this coming Monday, March 12th.

This means that you'll be able to play with and against players from other platforms, and that you'll be able to team up with friends across devices - pretty darn cool, right?

Fortnite is coming to iOS 11 and to the iPhone 6s or iPhone SE and newer and the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 and iPad 2017 devices.

To answer the question of when will Fortnite be on mobile, we need to simply look at what Epic Games has said on its official website. The game will continue its worldwide dominance because it will now be released for mobile devices later this year too as announced by Epic Games.

Aung San Suu Kyi was the second person to receive the Elie Wiesel Award, after only Wiesel himself. Her party won a landslide victory in 2015 and she became state counsellor.

Although Fortnite Battle Royale is free to download, if you're playing on Xbox One you will have to pay for Xbox Live Gold to play online. While other mobile ports of popular games exist in separate realms, Fortnite's incarnation appears to be a truly complete experience.

Would you play Fortnite Battle Royale on mobile?

Even more interestingly, this represents one of the first times the previously stubborn Sony have allowed cross-play. The game will initially be tested on iOS, with Android support following shortly after.

Epic says that it believes this is the future of games. Console quality graphics and action. It's an interesting move from a console maker that continues to stand in the way of cross-console play between the PS4 and Xbox One or Switch. If you get an invite you will be able to invite friends.

At this point, it really doesn't make much sense to not bring the title to the Nintendo Switch.
