And it seems that the Fortnite’s developer is hoping that success will translate to gaming on the go. Here’s everything we know about its mobile release so far…

What will Fortnite be like on mobile devices?

Announce the news earlier on today, a post on the Epic Games website revealed that Fortnite on the move will ‘be the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.’

That means that for players both old and new will be able treated to the same gameplay, content, maps, and weekly updates as the console and PC versions.


It’s also reported that Fortnite Battle Royale on mobile will eventually support cross-play and cross-progression between the PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS, and the Android versions of the game.

This means that you’ll be able to play with and against players from other platforms, and that you’ll be able to team up with friends across devices – pretty darn cool, right?
