Fortnite Battle Royale iOS Registration is Live, Android to Follow

Fortnite Battle Royale iOS Registration is Live, Android to Follow

War is now pocket-sized for your convenience.

Last week we learned Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile, and it features cross play with the PlayStation 4 version of the game. Well, iOS users can now sign up to try out Fortnite on Apple devices. That's right; you can waste adversaries from the comfort of your own toilet. Never let it be said we don't live in an incredible civilization.

To participate, you need a device running iOS 11. Compatible phones and tablets include the iPhone 6S/SE (or later), the iPad Mini 4, the iPad Air 2, the and iPad 2017 (or later). You also need to sign up with a valid email address, obviously.

If you sign up for the iOS trial, you'll make The List (image source: Gowans on Resetera).

The Battle Royale mobile sign-up website stresses this is "the full Battle Royale experience on the go: Same gameplay, same maps, same weekly updates." We'll have to see if compromises are made in the graphics department, which was necessary for PUBG to fit on phones in China. PUBG's limited mobile presence might mean long-term trouble for the premiere battle royale game, as Fortnite's mobile / PlayStation 4 cross play can only help build up its fast-growing audience.

Once you sign up, you'll be emailed an App Store link that directs to a download of the game. Don't worry if it doesn't arrive right away, as Epic is rolling out invitations gradually. You'll get your invite when Epic is assured Fortnite's servers won't snap like a weathered rubber band under the new influx. Oh, and fear not Android friends. You'll be allowed to play in a few months. Check out the first footage of Fortnite: Battle Royale on mobile in the trailer below. If you're currently trying to complete the weekly challenge, you might want to look at our Fortnite Ice Cream Truck Locations guide.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
