WANT to download Fortnite Battle Royale on iPhone and iPad? Invitations are already being sent out to players.
We’ve got a guide on how to get one, because only players who sign up for Fortnite on iOS will be able to get an invite for the download link.
What is Fortnite Battle Royale?
Fortnite Battle Royale is a hugely popular game that sees up to 100 players dropped on to a fictional island.
Gamers are then forced to fight for survival in a last-person-standing death-match.
It’s already available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows and Mac computers, and last week Epic Games announced it would be coming to mobile too.
Now the game is available to iOS users – which means anyone who owns an iPhone will be able to play it.
To get the game, you’ll need to sign up for the iPhone version here:
To get the game on iOS, you can sign up here.
You’ll be asked to enter some details, including your email address and the device model you’re using.
Once you’re signed up, you’ll receive an email confirming your request for an iOS download.
At some point afterwards, you should get an email with an official invite to play Fortnite on iPhone.
It’ll let you download the game from the official App Store.
However, not all players will get a link immediately – and you could be left waiting for weeks, or even months.
“If you don’t receive an invite right away, don’t worry,” explains Epic Games.
What Apple devices support Fortnite Battle Royale?
To play on iOS, you'll need any of the following devices updated to iOS 11...
- iPhone 6S or later
- iPhone SE
- iPad Mini 4
- iPad Pro or later
- iPad Air 2
- iPad 2017 or later
“We’ll be adding more players regularly over the coming months.
“Players who receive invites from Epic will also get friend invite codes to share with others.”
The good news about Fortnite on mobile is that it supports cross-play.
Why is the game so important?
Forbes magazine compared the release of Fortnite with Pokemon GO, saying Fortnite is set to be even more important.
The key is that its mobile version is not changing at all from its PC, Mac and console versions.
No other game has attempted this.
