Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to IOS and Android.
Saying Fortnite is popular is a huge understatement! The game is the talk of the town as you can hear people talking about this game no matter where you go and social media is riddled with memes, videos, and articles about it. It blew up even more when Drake decided to play with the hottest new Twitch Streamer, Ninja. While we don’t have a release date for Fornite Battle Royale on mobile devices, you can sign up on the Epic Games website. You will have to wait to get an email back from Epic Games confirming that you can play. If you get the invite codes, they can also be shared with your friends.
Fortnite on mobile also supports cross-play with PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Mac. It’s nice knowing that Epic Games is creating a game community where people on different platforms can play together. The mobile version will also be getting the same amount of support as the other releases. In a blog post, the development team said “Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.”. It should also be noted that the game looks great on mobile and that the game can be played with a controller if hooked up using Bluetooth or MFI.
Unfortunately, it seems like Switch owners are going to be the last to get Fortnite Battle Royale.
We recently wrote about everything we love and would love to see in Fortnite: Battle Royale and you can check that out if you need any more convincing to play the newest and hottest game. Fortnite: Battle Royale hasn’t been without its controversy with PUBG Corp putting up a stink about their marketing efforts. Interestingly enough, it was announced late last year that Player Uknown’s Battlegrounds would be making it’s way to mobile devices as well.
We’re personally interested to see how crossplay would work. My immediate reaction is that mobile players are going to get beaten more times than not against the more agile and accurate console and PC players. In fact, I see it as a completely unfair advantage to I’d like to see how they’re allowing mobile players to somehow keep up with PC and console players.
Last month we listed Fornite Battle Royale as a top video game for couples. Hopefully, one of them doesn’t like the mobile option better, as we can almost guarantee that will strain relationships.
More details to come. Keep it Savvy folks!
