It's not a weird conversion, or downsized experience either. It will be the entire game, according to Epic, the same one players are already participating in on PlayStation 4, XBox One, PC and Mac. "Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates".
Even more impressive, the mobile versions of Fortnite: Battle Royale will feature cross-play and the ability to maintain progression between platforms, including PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac.
Additionally, all those devices will be able to cross-play Fortnite together.
Starting this coming Monday, March 12, sign-up at www.Fortnite.com will be open for the Invite Event on Apple iOS devices.
Players have roughly two months to complete all the tiers in this season which may seem like a long time but keep in mind the Season 3 Battle Pass has increased from 70 tiers to 100 tiers. All in all, though, you can probably expect these five team battles to feel like a pretty standard game of Fortnite Battle Royale with the big difference being that you might actually have to work with people and not shoot them on-sight. No such luck for XBox One, but that's likely something to do with the business dealings between the console owners. This is where the Snobby Shores treasure location is, so land here right away if you don't want to spend time seeking out the map.
The game will release sometime this year, and Epic concluded with "See you on the Battle Bus". Console quality graphics and action. Epic says that it plans to "add more players regularly over the coming months".
Those who sign up will receive email invites allowing you to download the game from the App store.
In order to play Fortnite on iOS, there are a couple of stipulations: you'll need an internet connection and iOS 11.
