Fortnite is Coming to Android and iOS, Will Support Cross Play

Because the game will support cross play and cross progression between PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, iOS, and eventually Android (is this the part where we start nagging at Sony and Microsoft to make friends again?). Currently, cross-progression is only available with PlayStation 4 and PC, except for previous year when cross-play was "mistakenly" enabled between Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Epic Games haven't watered it down for mobile, so it's the same content, map, and players will also benefit from the regular weekly updates, alongside "console quality graphics".

Fortnite Battle Royale Mobile will first land on iOS, with Android coming in the next few months.

And it's not a downsized edition, either: the iOS and Android versions will support the same 100-player Battle Royale mode now available on PC. And if you're lucky enough to receive invite codes, you'll also be able to share them with your friends. To participate, players will need an Internet connection and iOS 11 on their an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad 2017 devices. One of those is that Fortnite for PC is not available on Steam, so you'll have to download it directly from Epic Games.

"Fortnite Battle Royale" for mobile. As it now stands the battle royale section of the game is free-to-play, and it most definitely includes a ton of loot boxes. And it would seem that for most players, this is enough. It will require a bit of a higher-end device, but it will offer the exact same game as on other platforms. This is possible, Epic says, through it's partnership with Sony, which appears to leave those on the Xbox One family of consoles out of the action.

Android support is believed to be coming "in the next few months".

But there is cross-platform play for PS4 owners, who can play with PC, iOS and Mac owners from Monday, March 12.
