If you haven’t played Fortnite on your iPhone yet, you’re missing out. Although it’s not the same as playing on your console, gamers are loving the ability to play it on their iPhones. Its one step closer to Fortnite taking over the world (and our lives). With the mobile version, you still get the full Fortnite experience even though it is on a smaller screen, making it even more desirable for players.
According to reports, Battle Royale has amassed over $1.5 million worldwide through in-app purchases. This is a huge number considering the game is only being released as “invite-only” and not open to the general public yet. Maybe Epic Games watched the early days of Pokemon Go struggle with server crashes, the slow release has prevented that from happening.
The game supports cross-platform play which now includes mobile. Although PS4 and Xbox players still can’t play with each other until Sony and Microsoft sign a deal, the multi-platform games have been a hit. To keep it fair, multi-platform teams are put up against similar teams since mobile users have a serious disadvantage to PC players. Additionally, all of your details and your friends list will be carried between platforms so that means you get to enjoy cross-progression too.
Android users, we feel your FOMO but Epic Games wants to get the game play experience right for Android users and there are a lot of systems that they want to be compatible with. Nick Chester of Epic Games said, “There’s a very wide range of Android devices that we want to support.” Android users shouldn’t expect the game to launch in Google Play this month, but hopefully within the coming months as the developers work through the experience.
