Epic Games' popular multiplayer game Fortnite Battle Royale for iOS is now available to everyone, following a limited beta test that lasted for two weeks.

As of this morning, beta invites are no longer needed to play Fortnite on an iPhone or iPad, so to play, all you need to do is download the game from the App Store.


Fortnite on iOS, which is free to play and supported by in-app purchases, is identical to the Battle Royale mode in Fortnite for PCs, Macs, and Consoles, where you have to kill or be killed.

The goal in the game is to be the last person standing, with players tasked with taking out enemies with a variety of weapons while also avoiding death from others. Players start out with just a pickaxe and must scavenge through the world for weapons, armor, and resources, while struggling to survive the melee.


The game supports up to 100 players, with gamers able to play solo or in squads of up to four people. Fortnite for iOS supports cross-platform play, so if desired, you can play with friends who are using a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, or Mac.

Fortnite is compatible with the iPhone 6s and later, the iPad mini 4 and later, the iPad Air 2, the 5th and 6th-generation iPads, and all iPad Pro models.

The game's public release comes just under two weeks after the launch of the officially licensed mobile app for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (aka PUBG), which came out on March 19. PUBG offers similar battle royale-style gameplay.

Fortnite can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I tried this during the beta as it was in the news, but didn’t find it an enjoyable experience.

There was no intro or anything so I had little idea what I was trying to do and I didn’t find the graphics appealing.

I guess it shows in getting old! (I’m 35)

Not old. It was just a sub-optimal experience on mobile. Fortnite's game playstyle simply isn't mobile focused. Both Fortnite and PUBG are KBM first, Controller second, and mobile last in order of optimised play.
It did feel very clunky.

It also lacked any narrative as to who I was or what I was doing. I used to play COD and prefer 1st person vs 3rd person games, but this just didn’t feel like fun.

To be honest if I play games they tend to be designed for iPhone/iPad like mini metro :)

35?? OLD??? :eek: You've barely just started your life!

I'm guessing you didn't play it too much on the PC or Xbox. I think the mobile is pretty much designed for those people...
