Fortnite Battle Royale For iOS Sign-Ups Are Now Live

Fortnite now on Xbox One PS4 PC Mac and mobile

Epic Games announced last week that Fortnite Battle Royale would be making its way to iOS and Android devices later this year, to the surprise of many.

The feature we're talking about is cross-play, which will happen but not between the PS4 and Xbox One.

Similarly to on a PS4, you'll have to search for Fortnite Battle Royale in the store.

Reuters/Carlos BarriaMicrosoft is urging Sony to enable "Fortnite" crossplay between the Xbox One X and the PlayStation 4. Over the weekend, we learned from Epic Games' announcement that Xbox One would have cross-play with PC, Android, and iOS, but not PS4. To date, Playstation manufacturer Sony has yet to comment or show support for the idea. Should they have been in a position of power as the maker of a best-selling console - an honor now held by the PS4 for Sony - many doubt that they would encourage cross-play for "Fortnite" as well. There is one big absence from the names listed, the Xbox One.

Created by Epic Games, the company behind Gears of War, Unreal, Shadow Complex and the Infinite Blade series, the company says iOS players wanting to take part can sign up at the Fortnite site here. The anticipated 100-person free-to-play multiplayer shooter has been made publicly available as part of patch v1.6.3 today, and you don't even need a PlayStation Plus subscription to get involved. For a while now, cross platform play has existed on all of the consoles, but it's severely restricted. If it was truly "for the players", I think letting gamers play together, regardless of platform, would be a cool thing to do! Considering Epic's vision for the game, the bug looked like more of an attempt. The same game on all platforms. "Play when you want, where you want".

The reason behind this is pretty clear cut; the PvE game mode is just too much for Mobile devices to run. Accounts such as the one shown below (with a link that's probably better left unclicked) model their account names after either the Epic Games or Fortnite name, usually with some extra numbers or characters thrown into the end of the Twitter handle. This is not in the interest of the players, and thus, could require some discussion to enrich gaming experience across different platforms.

Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.
