Fortnite Battle Royale is Coming to Mobile With PS4 Cross Play [Update: Live on iOS]

Fortnite Battle Royale continues to dominate the scene.

Update: Fortnite Battle Royale Mobile is now live on iOS. Invites to the beta are currently going out to players who signed up. Check your email if you pre-registered for a beta invite.

Original Story: Epic Games' incredibly popular Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices, phones and tablets. It is the same version of the 100-player PvP game from the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac but on mobile. You can pre-register to join the invite list starting Monday March, 12.

Epic also announced that in partnership with Sony, Fortnite Battle Royale will support Cross Play and Cros Progression between the PS4, PC, Mac, iOS, and later Android. So if you're playing on mobile, you will be able to play with PS4 players. A big coup for Sony given that Fortnite's biggest rival, PUBG, is a Xbox One exclusive.

To play, you can sign up over at this website here, starting Monday, March 12 for the Invite Event. Email invites will begin rolling out afterwards. Once invited, you will receive a link for the game download via your email and through the App Store. The invites will be on a rollout basis, so if you don't receive it at first, you will.

Also, people who get an invite will also receive a friend invite code to share, and get more people into the game that way.

Participating mobile platforms for Fortnite Battle Royale will be for iOS 11 devices on iPhone 6S/SE or newer, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad 2017 devices. Check in again on Monday for more details. If you're currently trying to complete the weekly challenge, you might want to look at our Fortnite Ice Cream Truck Locations guide.
