Fortnite Battle Royale mobile sign-ups kick off for iOS

Unlike other battle royale games, Fortnite has base building and a big building component.

Gamers are then forced to fight for survival in a last-person-standing death-match.

However, Fortnite mobile will fully support cross-play, meaning that players will be able to compete against each other no matter which system their using, from PlayStation to Xbox to even PC and Mac systems. It only took me three seconds to find a match, and once I was in, the game ran smoothly for the entirety of the fifteen or so minutes I played. And what's more is that it's not like the pared down version of the smash hit game like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' (PUBG) mobile efforts via Tencent. Epic is only letting small groups in at first, as the game is not finished yet. When can you get your sign up code. Of course, Epic Games has not specified when this new feature will come into force, but hopefully it does not make you beg too.

According to Steamcharts, PUBG's average player count decreased by more than 190,000 from January to February, a drop of more than 12%.

As soon as you get your invite email, you should be all set to download the app and start playing.

However, today's mobile Fortnite launch will only be playable by people who have an Apple device, so when can we expect to play it on Android? The approaching Fortnite Mobile will be cross-stage between iOS, Android, PC, Mac and Xbox One, and furthermore between iOS, Android, PC, Mac, and PS4.

The Fortnite Invite Event page is live, but the links are not working yet.

Fortnite Mobile will also be coming to Android at a later date.

"We identified some issues with it and we wanted to make sure those were all sorted out before we release it", said Williamson.
