Epic Games has announced that it plans to bring hugely popular multiplayer game Fortnite Battle Royale to iOS devices in the near future.

The acclaimed free-to-play title is coming to both iPhones and iPads and will be the "same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac," with identical content and regular updates that match the console and PC versions.

In partnership with our friends at Sony, Fortnite Battle Royale will support Cross Play and Cross Progression between PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android. This means players across devices can squad up with friends and play together.

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

Starting Monday, March 12, interested gamers can sign up for an iOS Invite Event at the official Fortnite website. Email invites will be sent out to all signees, who will receive an email with a link to download the game from the App Store. People who receive invites from Epic will also get friend invite codes to share with others.


Participation requirements include an internet connection, iOS 11, and at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad 2017. Invites operate on a first come, first serve basis, but Epic says it will be adding more players over the coming months.

This is one of those games I just didn't understand at all. Played 20 matches (xbox), didn't die, won every one of them. To me it was extremely easy so I moved on. Nice to see it make its way to a mobile platform, obviously there is an audience for it... I'm just not one of them.
Lmao, lies. There is no way you won 20 games in a row, especially your FIRST 20 games.

No lie, I did. It was very easy game for me. Why would I make that up? lol
Maybe the base game instead of the Battle Royal mode?

You played Save the World, by yourself... otherwise if you had done that in Battle Royale, you would be an internet celebrity with your own pet lion and a video about how cool your crib is. Probably having a movie deal made out of you, tv series and 2-3 books written + countless tv models thrown at your feet...

GOOD JOB though!!

You won 20 games of Battle Royale? Are you sure... cuz, uh the chances of you winning 20 games of a 100 player every man for himself melee... Maybe you won 20 games of Save the World. If you won 20 games of Battle Royale you would be internet famous.

Not sure why this isn't on the ATV instead of iPhone's and iPad. Fortnite's game play style does not really fit a touch interface or a small screen.
