  • Fortnite Coming to Mobile Devices, iOS Beta Next Week

Registration for the Android version of the game is "coming later".

For a company's whose tagline for their gaming console is "this is for the players", Sony's actions continue to speak much louder than their marketing efforts. Spencer replied with a rather telling "Me 2", before developer Epic added "We 3".

"We've worked closely with Nintendo to allow cross-network play between Xbox One and Switch and our offer to do the same with PlayStation players still holds".

Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the first opportunities for Xbox and Playstation gamers have been able to play against each other and it is a shame that Sony is blocking the cross-platform gameplay. Likewise, the mobile clones of Cuphead left out what fans an critics loved about Studio MDHR's PC and Xbox One game.

Epic Games seem to be pushing Fortnite into the stratosphere, putting it out on all formats, pushing for cross-play, hell, it's even featured on UK TV in an abominable "This game is ruining my child's life" segment.

Squad play allows up to five players, be they friends formed before finding a match or strangers placed together during matchmaking, to form a team.

Sony hasn't stated publicly why they won't enable this functionality but one thing is clear, it's hurting the overall gaming community and putting PS4 players at an unnecessary disadvantage.

Epic Games have confirmed that they will not be able to bring every aspect of Fortnite to Mobile. Considering Epic's vision for the game, the bug looked like more of an attempt. The same game on all platforms.

The game's official Twitter account recently announced sign-ups for the iOS version of Fortnite is finally open.

Addressing the concerns of some players, who think that the mobile version of the Battle Royale shooter might not be as vibrant, the developers assured, "On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac".

Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.
