Fortnite Week 3 Challenges update Server downtime for Epic Games ahead of new 3.2 Patch

A 20-player team event is rolling out to the game now, and they're still working on the jetpack, which could bring massive changes to the Fortnite: Battle Royale experience.

Fortnite Mobile has been announced by Epic Games, and it's more than we could have asked for. The most interesting thing about this version of the game is that it will support Cross Platform Play and Cross Progression between the PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Mac, iOS and Android.

"We believe this is the future of games", commented Epic.

Fortnite Battle Royale for iOS will feature the "same gameplay, same map, same content, and same weekly updates" as its console and desktop counterparts. "The public release date for the final version is to be announced, and the announcement post states support for Android will be coming in the next few months".

Additionally, all those devices will be able to cross-play Fortnite together.

The mobile version of Fornite only runs on iOS 11 and requires at least an iPhone 6S/SE iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 devices.

Previously in Fortnite, you were only able to battle with a team of 4 maximum, but now you can roll up with a squad 20 deep for an vast deathmatch.

We expected that Battle Royale games would be everywhere following the success of PUBG, but it's been somewhat surprising to see just how popular the genre has been on mobile devices.

What's more, Epic is already taking mobile sign-ups for the game, starting this Monday for a special Invite Event on iOS. The Xbox One is excluded from the list. A total of 45 million others own the game and play it on either their consoles or their desktop computers. 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.

What if you can't wait, and want to get access to Fortnite Mobile on your iPhone or iPad right now? Alas, Fortnite is going mobile.

Cross-play and cross-progression for Fortnite will be coming to several platforms soon.
