Epic Games’ Fortnite Battle Royale is officially out of beta on mobile device, now’s your chance with an iPhone SE / 6S or later running iOS 11 (on an iPad mini 4 / Air 2 or later) can download the game and jump into a match. The Epic Games has announced that it has opened up sign-ups for the iOS pilot program, meaning everyone without an invite, can play it on their mobile devices.
Up until now, iOS users would only be allowed to download and play Fortnite if they have received an invite code, where a few lucky ones. But Epic Games has today announced the news on its Twitter feed that the free-to-play title is available with a compatible iOS device.
Fortnite, one of the most thrilling and exciting battle royale-style game ever to be released for mobile, is now available to grab without an invite code on Apple’s iOS platform. Here, if you want to see what Fortnite looks like on a mobile, now is your chance. Fortnite took the App Store by storm when Epic Games initially pushed it into public domain. And also to prevent huge simultaneous loads being placed on the game’s servers, access to the title was by invite-only and restricted to those individuals who had signed up for an early access code.
Epic Games Studio does seem has ironed out any issues with its servers, leaving the company in a position to open its virtual doors for anyone and all with a compatible iOS device to download and play Fortnite for mobile. The mass availability of the title was tipped via social media post:
No invite needed – Fortnite is now open everywhere on iOS. Grab your friends and jump in now!
The studio also followed the announcement with a second post outlining exactly which devices are compatible with Fortnite on the iOS App Store, and, perhaps more importantly, which devices aren’t:
Works with: iPhone SE, 6S, 7, 8, X; iPad Mini 4, Air 2, 2017, Pro.
Fortnite DOES NOT support: iPhone 5S, 6, 6 Plus; iPad Air, Mini 2, Mini 3, iPod Touch.
With the confirmation in mind, if you have an iPhone newer than iPhone 5s, then you are good to go. You’ll also need an iPad mini 4 or an iPad Air 2 or above. Of course, it includes Apple’s iPad Pro range as well as the 2018 iPad 6 running the A10 chip onboard.
Any device before that, are out of luck, unfortunately. Yes, it includes iPhone 5s. Recently, Tencent Games has been having graphics issues with PUBG Mobile running on iPhone 5s (even though the device is now officially supported by PUBG), so, it could be the case by Epic Games to exclude that device.
Individuals, who are looking forward on in envy as other people interact with Fortnite multiplayer mobile and wax lyrical about the experience via social media, then now is the time for you to download the game and take to the battlefield. We’ll definitely keep you updated with the facts, progress of the Android version as and when we find anything out.
