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]
