Fortnite Coming to Mobile Devices, iOS Beta Next Week

Fortnite players are anxious to try the battle royale game on the mobile platform, so much so that some are getting led on by fake invitations. In fact, Epic Studios accidentally enabled Xbox One vs. PS4 cross-play last September. "Cross-platform is already allowed between mobile, PC and Xbox or Playstation players, therefore proving there are no system limitations preventing this from happening". Apparently, Sony, the owner of all things PS4, is quite reluctant to allow cross-play with Xbox One due to some questionable "security reasons" they claim to be a hindrance for the cross-play between the two console platforms. Further, the executive stated that for any other questions related to Fortnite cross-play between Xbox and PlayStation, Epic and Sony should be contacted. Eagle eyed readers might have noticed the omission of the Xbox One from that list but that situation is apparently down to Sony's reticence.

Now there are three permanent game modes available in Fortnite: Battle Royale - solo, duo and squad. Spencer said at the time that he "would have liked to see them leave it on".

Players who receive invites from Epic will also get friend invite codes to share with others. It will be interesting to see if/how exploits like rocket riding will work on mobile devices, if at all. Xbox players would not be able to compete against PlayStation users, which is pretty annoying.

Federer reaches Indian Wells last 16 in 58 minutes
Federer returned to stadium court on Sunday afternoon and needed an hour to finish off his second round victory 6-3, 7-6 (8/6). He is making a cautious return to the ATP Tour after stopping his 2017 season following Wimbledon, due to a right elbow injury.

While announcing the mobile version, Epic talked of its vision for the game, saying, "We believe this is the future of games. Exposing what in many cases are children to external influences we have no ability to manage or look after, it's something we have to think about very carefully". The same game on all platforms. This is not in the interest of the players, and thus, could require some discussion to enrich gaming experience across different platforms.

Starting Monday, users can sign-up for the Invite Event on iOS. The mobile build will require you to have iOS 11 installed on one of the following devices: iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017. "Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates", screams the YouTube video description copy.
