Fortnite Battle Royale Now Available From App Store as First Beta Invites Go Out

Epic Games' popular multiplayer game Fortnite Battle Royale is now available for download from the iOS App Store, and the first beta invites for the game have been sent out to those who signed up for the beta.

The new free-to-play iOS game is identical to the Battle Royale mode in Fortnite for PCs, Macs, and consoles, and it is similar to other games of this style like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Battle Royale supports up to 100 players, with gamers able to play solo or in squads of up to four people.


The aim of the game is to be the last person standing, taking out opponents with a variety of weapons while also avoiding death from other people. Players start out with just a pickaxe and must scavenge through the world for weapons, armor, and resources.

Fortnite Battle Royale for iOS supports Cross Play and Cross Progression between Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac, which means players across multiple devices can play together.

If you haven't yet signed up for the Fortnite Battle Royale beta test on iOS, you can do so on the Epic Games website. Not all players who signed up for the test have received beta invites at this time, with Epic Games planning to send out invites on a rolling basis.

Each person who is invited to the Fortnite Battle Royale beta test will also receive invite codes to share with others.

To participate in the beta, players must have an internet connection and a device running iOS 11. Eligible devices able to run the game include the iPhone 6s and later, the iPad mini 4, all iPad Pro models, the iPad Air 2, and the 2017 5th-generation iPad.

Fortnite can be downloaded from the App Store for free, but a beta invite is required to play. [Direct Link]

Platform crossplay...with mobile? Good luck. A full-touch device stands no chance against players on PC without some auto-aim assistance.


Well it’s fully optional. It’s mainly for those who don’t have a computer / console but want to play with their friends.

I really hope they add controller support ASAP. The website says in a future update but doesn’t mention a timeframe

You understood it wrongly.

You won't have cross play enabled by default ( as far as I've read from some German news)

If you play alone you play on the platform you are on (Mobile/Console/PC).
Then, regarding which whom you are in party, you will be matched with the least higher platform.

Mobile & Mobile = Mobile
Mobile & Console = Console
Mobile & PC = PC
Console & PC = PC

etc.

Its the similar as with rocket league. Sadly that you can't play with XBO and PS4...Screw you Sony.
(PS4 and PC works tho)

It's very impressive they managed to port Fortnite to mobile.. If anyone has some invitation keys left, I'd be more than happy to receive one!


Can I get an invite please?


They haven't sent anyone invitation codes yet. People have received emails to play but invitation codes for friends are not available yet.

Nah, I’m gonna wait for the Nintendo Switch version. Trying to play this on my iPhone or iPad sounds like a nightmare. I’ve pretty much stopped playing most mobile games on my iPhone and just play the Switch now. I’ll occasionally play something on my iPad, but less often.

Now if only PUBG would come to other platforms—but considering the current state on even the Xbox One X, it’s probably for the best. Got two chicken dinners the other day though and it’s starting to get better. Don’t have much time to play Fortnite on console though so I’d rather take it with me.
