Fortnite Battle Royale – Mobile looks like it’s going to bring the same kind of colorful, fast, and furious excitement seen in the regular version of the game. Epic Games has launched its official announcement trailer for the game, particularly its Battle Royale mode, which is the massively popular free-to-play multiplayer mode. You’ll be able to sign up right now to be added to a list for early invites to the game for iOS, with Android support later on down the line.
The mobile version of the game is said to have the same gameplay, maps, content, and weekly updates as the regular version on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac but it remains to be seen how well it’ll feel on mobile since players could be at a significant disadvantage if using touch control instead of a controller. There will be cross-play between PC, PlayStation 4, and Mac, with iOS players going up against Android users when the game is available for them.
Mobile players will only be able to opt into both PC and PlayStation 4 queues for the game, but it won’t work backward as such, but that’s still a pretty wide playing field to look for people online. You can sign up to try out the game today, but there’s no word yet on when you might see it going live. That should be coming pretty soon, however, if mobile launches like these in the past are any indication.
