Fortnite is now publicly available on iPhone and iPad


After launching in closed beta a few weeks ago, the iOS version of Fortnite is now available to all iOS users.

Epic Games, the title’s developer, made the announcement on Twitter, stating that a special link or invitation to play the third-person ‘battle royale’ shooter on mobile devices is no longer needed.

In order to play Fortnite on a mobile device, you’ll need an iOS 11 compatible iPhone or iPad. This means that the game specifically runs on the iPhone SE, 6S, 7, 8 and X, and with the iPad Mini 4, Air 2, 2017 and Pro models. The game is not compatible with Apple’s  iPhone 5S, 6, 6 Plus, iPad Air, Mini 2, Mini 3 and iPod Touch.

An Android version of Fortnite is still in development and is expected to launch at some point in the next few months.

Fortnite is cross-play compatible with the PlayStation 4, Mac, PC and mobile devices. The Xbox One players can game with Mac, PC and mobile players, but not the PlayStation 4.
