Fortnite Mobile's Invite-Only iOS Version Is Already No. 1 On The App Store
Fortnite is crushing it.
Fortnite's popularity continues to rise. The mobile edition of the super-popular battle royale game launched today on iOS through an invite-only beta, and it's already topping the charts.
The mobile version is currently sitting at the top of the Free Apps chart for games on the App Store. It's a remarkable achievement considering you need an invite to get in. It's not immediately clear if this is the first time an invite-only game has reached No. 1.
The first invitations to the Fortnite iOS beta started going out on March 16, and more people will be added in the coming days and weeks. An Android version is also in the works, but it's coming later, and Epic has not said if there will be a beta for this version or not.
We tried out the mobile version and found that it's pretty much the same game as on console and PC. You can see gameplay from a full match on iOS right here. In addition, the mobile edition will support optional cross-play with other platforms.
Meanwhile, a new 3.3 update has launched for the console and PC game that adds a new item, remote explosives, and more. Additionally, an update is launching tomorrow on PC that fixes a crash scenario. The game's popularity got another jolt this week when famous rapper Drake played the game during a record-breaking Twitch stream.
