Fortnite is launching its battle royale on Android and iOS, will be mostly crossplatform


March 9,2018 7 comments



Have you been wondering which of the big battle royale titles would make a bid for mobile? Probably the first one that came to console, yeah? You’d be right: It’s Fortnite. Epic announced last night that BR mode is headed to iOS and Android, though iOS first, which might have seemed normal years ago but is admittedly a bit bizarre in 2018, given Android’s overwhelming market share, but there you go.
Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices! On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.”
The really awesome part is crossplatforminess. “In partnership with our friends at Sony, Fortnite Battle Royale will support Cross Play and Cross Progression between PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android,” Read more

This game is actually a lot more fun than I anticipated it would be. A friend got me to download it and at first I wasn't feeling it but after really getting the feel of it I think it's a lot better than what I initially gave it credit for.

Who can really pass up the opportunity to sneak up and shoot people?

I thought they might allow Switch cross play too. Don't think this policy will be popular if it affects too many more games, especially if everyone else is allowing it. People want to be able to play with their friends whatever platform they own.

I wonder if this latest uproar will cause Sony to change its ways.

it's the first time that I can recall it made its way to a mainstream business channel ( and affected its stock ).

I don't play Fortnite, so it doesn't really bother me. but for other games, say Soul Calibur VI, if I'm playing that on PS4 and Iceman has it on X1, it would be nice if we could still play together.

I'm sure, behind the scenes, with the different platform infrastructures, it's probably a bit more complicated than simply allowing cross-play across all platforms.

but if Xbox and Switch can seem to do it ( and even PC ), and Sony consistently sits it out, then that does start becoming an annoyance and inconvenience to gamers.

Exactly!

I have a lot of real life school friends who play on pc/various consoles and it would be great to get them all together. Wouldn't it be nice also that anyone you meet in future who is a game enthusiast, you'd know you'd be able to play together rather than the conversation on that front ending as soon as you find you're on different systems. Of course the multiplayer on exclusive games is different but noone's asking for that.
