Epic Games Talks FORTNITE BATTLE ROYALE And Its Move To Mobile

Fortnite iOS Friend Invites Now Available Fortnite for iOS is officially on the App Store
Olivia Ford | 20 March, 2018, 04:51

This includes both Android and iOS. What makes this really impressive is the fact that the game is not only iOS-exclusive at the moment, but also its invite-only system which artificially slows down its adoption.

Just like on the console or PC version of the game, staying aware of your location is key to surviving in Fortnite: Battle Royale. As I reported earlier today, Fortnite is the No. 2 highest-grossing game on iOS, and app store intelligence firm Sensor Tower estimates it has made $1.5 million worldwide on Apple's devices since turning on in-app purchases. You can play with auto-filled squads, but it's a lot better to play with people you know. Tapping it lets you send out links for each invite.

While the introduction of Blitz into Fortnite Battle Royale will likely be welcomed with open arms by most, if not all fans of the free-to-play game, many will still be sad to see the previously available Teams of 20 mode be cycled out.

Outside of its massive market size, what do you find most appealing about the mobile gaming market?

Because you're using an Epic account, all of your details and your friends list will be carried between platforms so that means you get to enjoy cross-progression too.

Not only is Fortnite making huge inroads in the PC / console market, but it's racking up some fantastic numbers on mobile as well. Not only playing the game, but watching it as well has become an addiction. Items are automatically added to your inventory when you run over them, including guns.

Considering Fortnite features cross-play with PC, Mac, iOS, and PS4 players, having controller support in the mobile version would certainly help to balance the playing field. We think it's an important, exciting step... we hope players agree! Since there are millions of players playing this popular game on multiple platforms, there are always some people who need help with it and who are willing to pay for that help.
