Finally, Fortnite will be playable on your smartphone. The developers Epic Games have decided that Fortnite Battle Royale will be released across platforms on iOS and Android. iOS users and fans of the very popular Battle Royale game will soon get the chance to sign up for the test phase after March 12th. Android users have to be patient.
Fortnite – Finally also available for Android and iOS
After the countless copies of Fortnite and PUBG for the smartphone, the Battle Royale game Fortnite will now officially be released on the smartphone and tablet. Since last year there has been a sudden boom in the gaming scene that has made Battle Royale games, especially Fortnite and PUBG, extremely popular. While PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is much more about the fight for survival, Fortnite has introduced a crafting system where raw materials can be collected and buildings, walls, ladders, etc. can be built. In addition, Fortnite stands out with a cartoon style, while PUBG is a bit more realistic. Reason enough for some PUBG fans to label the direct competitor Fortnite as “child’s play”.
No restrictions on PC, console and smartphone
The highlight for the mobile version of Fortnite is that it is crossplay capable. This means that Fortnite players can play on the iOS or Android device with or against players on the PC and console. So you can always find enough opponents. Players may also use their account from the PC or PlayStation. This is a great solution for every fan of the game.
When will Fortnite for iOS and Android be released?
For exact dates and further information, you should always check Reddit and the official website of the developers. There you can also register for the test phase today. After registering you will receive an email with download link and further information. This only applies to iOS. Users of Android will have to wait a few more months. If you are one of the unlucky ones who was not considered in the first test phase, don’t be sad at all. The test phase is constantly being extended. More and more players will be added. You will also get your chance.
To play Fortnite on your smartphone you need a powerful smartphone or tablet. A working and stable internet connection is also an absolute must. More detailed information and system requirements will be provided here later.
