The game will be expanding beyond its home on consoles and PC/Mac with the launch of "Fortnite Mobile" in iOS next week.

With literally billions of potential players to be found exclusively on such mobile devices, Fortnite could help pave the way for other major 3D games to make the leap to a mobile market that is often unjustly seen as an indie-and-puzzle game backwater.

An Android version is coming in the "next few months". Epic explained in their blog post that the cross-platform integration is "in partnership with our friends at Sony", which explains why Xbox gamers are SOL.

The game and its signature Battle Royale online mode that pits 100 players against each other in a fight to the death is already available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but the additional option to play it on mobile platforms (with cross-play and cross-progression with most other versions to boot) has players wondering when will Fortnite be on mobile?

According to Epic Games, the mobile versions will have feature-parity with their PC and console counterparts.

Developers behind the hugely popular "Fortnite" video game are soon releasing an iOS version of the game for Apple mobile devices like iPhones, iPads, and iPods. Console quality graphics and action. You'll be able to sign up at Fornite's website starting March 12, and you'll receive an invite "shortly thereafter" by email if you're accepted. This slow roll-out will take place over the coming months, the company has admitted, suggesting that it will be taking things slowly at first to ensure the launch goes as smoothly as possible.

Battle Royale is free on consoles and PC, supported by microtransactions (which are cosmetic only), and we would expect the mobile edition for follow the same format. If you're invited to participate, you'll also receive friend invite codes to share with friends.

To play you'll need at minimum an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad 2017 device running iOS 11.

Also unknown is how Epic Games translates Fortnite: Battle Royale's survival mechanics and twitchy gunplay to a touchscreen interface.
