Fortnite Mobile Now Open to All iOS Players, No Invites Required

Fortnite Mobile Now Open to All iOS Players, No Invites Required

Many have been able to download Fortnite for iOS for a couple of weeks at this point, but until recently it was an invite-only affair.

Prior to the release of PUBG on mobile devices, Epic Games announced their decision to bring their own battle royale title, appropriately dubbed "Fortnite Battle Royale", to iOS and Android devices.

The iOS version is the same as the console and PC versions, and it includes cross-play across all platforms.

According to the report from SuperData, Fortnite Battle Royale has surpassed GTA V in monthly active users, however, the report doesn't reveal any specific numbers for the game's active player base. Given the online nature of the game, you will need an stable, consistent Internet connection.

Epic also claims the iOS release will get the same weekly updates as the other platforms, and will be introducing an Android version "within the next few months". Given the ability to sideload apps on Android may make a structured roll out tough to pull off though.

However, this has created some problems as many students play the popular battle royale game in class.

Even if you don't play it, you've probably heard of it. Hillman does not want you playing the game in class.
