Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to iOS and Android devices

Fortnite

The mobile version of Fortnite, announced on Thursday by Epic Games, is ambitious: It'll feature the same 100-player battle royale gameplay that its console brethren is famous for (and which PUBG initially made a phenomenon). For the briefest of times, Battle Royale players on PS4 and Xbox One were able to play each other after an "accidental" flipping of the switch from Epic.

"Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates", Epic said in a forum post about Fortnite: Battle Royale's mobile edition.

Epic Games will also be opening an invite event for users on iOS devices on Monday, March 12. Fans who don't immediately get an invite won't be left out, as the studio intends to add more players on a regular basis in the months to come.

Fortnite Battle Royale is not a split screen game, and officially it is not cross platform between consoles, so you can not play on PS4 with your friends on Xbox One, for example. And if you're lucky enough to receive invite codes, you'll also be able to share them with your friends. Xbox One is noticeably missing from this thanks to Epic Games "partnership" with Sony.

Jim Justice to bump up their pay 2 per cent in the first year as they also complained about rising health insurance costs. He said Tuesday that additional budget cuts by his staff will enable all state workers to also get 5 percent raises.

Fortnite is a battle royale type multiplayer game in which you face off against 99 other players. Fortnite Battle Royale is starting out as invite only on the iPhone and iPad on Monday.

Epic Community Manager Nick Chester clarified in a tweet that players will be able to opt into cross-platform matchmaking queues or stick with players on the same platform. More invites will be sent out over the coming months, so if you don't get in right away, you'll have more opportunities later. No mention of the Xbox One, though, possibly due to the deal with Sony. The same game on all platforms. It's a tense game with plenty of light-hearted moments and the cartoony graphics make it fun to watch and now, with the arrival of a mobile version, you never need to be far from the action. It was the first to hit the consoles and get on 75 million PS4s. The port also highlights the steadily increasing power of mobile phones and tablets, which can now match the performance of at least the lower end of major 3D console games without issue.

The ever-popular PUBG rival, Fortnite has grown in popularity since its release previous year, it has reached 20 million players and is the most streamed game on Twitch beating even its rival.
