Starting Monday, players can sign up to participate in the Fortnite Battle Royale closed-beta for iOS. To take part, you'll need an Internet connection and iOS 11 on at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad 2017 devices. Epic, however, insists mobile players will get the exact same experience in "Battle Royale" as they would on those other platforms.
The developer of the now leading shooter game "Fortnite" has recently revealed the mobile game version, which may have just solidified their place as the top game in the battle-royale genre.
There are multiple reasons why Fortnite players would prefer PC instead of mobile, and there's not much to explain around that. "Fortnite" can already be played on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PCs.
On Friday, the Fortnite team announced that the game will be teaming up with Xbox to bring cross-platform play to Fortnite. Mobile players will also get to join PlayStation and PC lobbies, however this does not work vice versa. For casual gamers though, we'd recommend waiting for a proper iOS and Android release on the App Store and Google Play respectively.
Furthermore, Epic Games also promised that the support for these features would also become available to the Android versions of the game in the next few months. According to the developer, the next few months will see cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS arrive to the game. So the only platforms not able to "communicate" are Sony and Microsoft's consoles.
