How to play Fortnite on mobile

For those not yet in the know, Fortnite is a fast-paced and hectic shooter game that requires forward-planning and high mechanical skill to be successful. Players are pitted against 99 opponents, sky-diving out of a floating Battle Bus and choosing a location to land in before scrambling for weapons and resources to protect themselves, and hunt down members of the opposite teams. As if that wasn't enough to contend with, a deadly storm will begin to encircle the island shortly after the round starts, shrinking in size every few minutes to limit the available play space and force players into battles to the death. 

If you think that sounds like fun, then you're not the only one. Fortnite currently has over 125 million players worldwide, helping the game reach a level of mainstream impact few games have found before (case in point, Drake recently streamed himself playing the game on Twitch, breaking the record for the most-viewed gaming stream of all time). And best of all, it's free to download, so it won't cost you a cent to play (although you can always spend a little on custom outfits for your character).

Fortnite on mobile

Up 'til recently, Fortnite could only be played on gaming consoles or PCs. But since its release on iOS earlier this year, Fortnite on mobile is starting to flourish as a way to play the game. Epic Games, the developers of the title, have confirmed that Fortnite will be coming to Android sometime in mid-2018. No specific date has been given but that's really only a matter of a few months before Android users can join in the fun. 

To play on iOS you’ll need an iPhone SE, iPhone 6S/6S Plus, iPhone 7/ 7 Plus, iPhone 8/ 8 Plus or iPhone X, or an iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4 or 2017 iPad to play on tablet.

Playing on mobile gives you the full Fornite Battle Royale experience, just on a mobile device. There are obviously some small differences when compared to the console or PC versions: it’s not quite as visually accomplished as it is on more powerful devices, the controls are touchscreen, and a lot of audio cues have been made visual so you can play comfortably in public without the need for headphones. But you won’t be missing out on any features. And you can play anywhere, any time.
