Fortnite Mobile Out For Everyone On iOS
No word on Android, but iOS is officially open to all.
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
While Android users continue to await word of when they'll get access, Epic Games has wrapped up its invite-only iOS test for Fortnite Mobile. Everyone with a supported iOS device can now dive into the wildly popular game, which is playable in its entirety for free on phones and tablets.
Fortnite has been a free download on the iOS App Store since the debut of the test in March, though only those who were granted access (by Epic or through the subsequent round of friend invites) could actually log in. If you haven't already, you can head to Epic's website to create an account. To play, you'll need one of the following devices:
Fortnite Mobile Supported iOS Devices
- iPhone SE
- iPhone 6S
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 8
- iPhone X
- iPad Mini 4
- iPad Air 2
- iPad 2017
- iPad Pro
Fortnite Mobile doesn't support devices like the iPhone 5S, 6, 6 Plus; the iPad Air, Mini 2, Mini 3; or the iPod Touch. While that's unfortunate for owners of those, if you do have the proper hardware, Fortnite Mobile presents a surprisingly complete version of the game--weekly challenges and all. That's necessary, given the presence of optional cross-play with other platforms, but the game even holds up decently in comparison with the Xbox One X version.
We still don't have any specific word on the Android version of Fortnite Mobile. Epic has said that it's coming, but we don't know just how soon to expect it. Presumably, with testing on iOS complete, it can now turn its attention to Android--although ongoing issues still have stats disabled on all platforms.
