The other battle royale-style game, Fortnite: Battle Royale, is coming to iOS and Android, Epic announced this week. The free-to-play title has grown in popularity over the last several months and will likely be even more popular once mobile players join the fight.
What’s surprising is mobile users will get the exact same experience players have enjoyed on console and PC. “Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates,” Epic said in an announcement.
Once the game hits mobile, Epic said there will be cross-platform support, which means mobile users can squad up with their friends playing on a PlayStation 4.
“We believe this is the future of games,” Epic said. “The same game on all platforms. Console quality graphics and action. Play when you want, where you want.”
Players can sign up to join an invite list starting Monday, March 12, with a wider rollout to commence over the coming weeks. Epic said Fortnite: Battle Royale will support the iPhone 6S and up, an iPad mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad 2, and iPad models released in 2017; you also need to be running iOS 11.
Unfortunately, Android owners will have to wait a little longer. “Support for Android will be coming in the next few months,” Epic said.
With mobile support rolling out, now all we need is the game to come to the Nintendo Switch.
