Fortnite Battle Royale is Coming to Android and iOS, Crossplay Confrimed

So if the mobile version retains this type of monetization, it should sadly fit right in with the rest of the FTP games on the Play Store.

Are you going to give Fortnite Battle Royale a try on mobile?

If you want to spend money in Fortnite Battle Royale you can buy the Battle Pass.

Additionally, Cross Progression will feature across all platforms, meaning you'll have one Fortnite account which can be accessed across PC, Mac, PS4 and iOS. You'd have to imagine that console/PC players would have an advantage. So, iOS users will be able to take on Android when the support arrives.

What has made Fortnite Battle Royale so popular? We will update you when we have a solid release date. Can't get home in time for the first match?

Android fans, on the other hand, need not fret as Epic assured them that support for such devices will arrive in the coming months. It'll be a limited number of players at first, but Epic has promised to add more player spots over the coming months. Players who receive invites from Epic will also get friend invite codes to share with others.

On iOS devices, Fortnite Battle Royale will require iOS 11 and an internet connection. And it would seem that for most players, this is enough.

There's also an unofficial way for PS4 players to play with PC players. Your progress will also sync across the platforms. Sony has said it doesn't allow cross-play for games like Minecraft and Rocket League due to the risks posed to younger players. Here's everything we know about it so far... The only main difference is that you have to control the game using a touch screen!

Fortnite Battle Royale is the direct competitor for PUBG but not anymore as the massively multiplayer online game is about to go all mobile expanding its horizon. As the name implies this is a battle royale game where many players drop into a map that starts to shrink until there is only one player left.

For the uninitiated, "Fortnite" is a cooperative survival game.

It's safe to say that Fortnite is a cultural phenomenon at this point.

Obviously inspired by PUBG, Fortnite has become a giant unto itself. The building element may sound like Minecraft, but this is still a shooter. You can see a trailer for the game below.
