Epic Games will be launching the mobile version of Fortnite Battle Royale this week and players can sign-up from today to get invited to play.
The mobile Fortnite is set to be the exact same as other platforms with the same graphics and gameplay, as well as the regular weekly updates.
It will enable players to enjoy the game wherever they go as long as they have a compatible device and an internet connection.
Alongside the new mobile version of the game, players will also soon be able to cross-play with PC, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One.
How to get Fortnite on your mobile
From Monday 12th March (today) players can sign-up at www.Fortnite.com to have a chance of getting the iOS Invite for the launch of the mobile version of the game.
Shortly after the mobile sign-up has opened Epic Games will start sending out invites with a link to download the game from Apple’s App Store.
Not everyone will be getting invited to play straight away as the Fortnite team plans to gradually invite more players over the next few months.
Once you have you have access to the game you will also receive invite codes that will let you give friends the opportunity to play with you as well.
Which mobile devices can play Fortnite?
Currently the mobile version of the game will only be available on iOS 11, with plans to launch on Android some time in the future.
Players will need to have at least an iPhone 6S/SE, or alternatively an iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 or iPad 2017 devices.
Will vehicles be added to Fortnite Battle Royale?
There are currently no vehicles in Battle Royale but developers have been open to the idea of adding them to the game in some capacity.
On the Fortnite website Epic Games says ‘Right now we do not have any immediate plans to add vehicles.’
‘We’ve done some very early prototypes internally, but have concerns with how they’ll affect the flow of Battle Royale.’
Whilst vehicles don’t yet feature in Battle Royale, they do exist in the other Fortnite game mode – Save the World.
Epic Games added a hoverboard during the season 3 update and it lets players travel the map at a faster speed, but they can get knocked off if they take damage while riding it.
This could potentially be something that we will see added to the Battle Royale version of the game in the future, which would provide a new way for players to travel.
It’s unlikely that we will see larger vehicles, like those available in PUBG, as Fortnite is currently played on a fairly small map which makes cars and motorbikes unnecessary.
A jetpack was teased on Fortnite last week and while it hasn’t been confirmed exactly what the jetpack will do, many players are getting excited about the upcoming item.
It was originally set to be released last week but it has since been delayed while developers continue to perfect the item after some design issues.
