On mobile devices, Fortnite is the same 100-player experience on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It is worth noting that Sony is not exactly open to supporting cross-play of their games to other consoles. After signing up through the Epic Games website, players may receive an e-mail with a link to download the game within 48 hours.
Battle-royale games have seen quite the increase of user participation recently. First of all, it's official that PS4 and Xbox One users won't be able to play together. "Play when you want, where you want", said Epic in its announcement post.
Are you ready to drop down onto mobile devices?
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the next game in the pipeline and it will be released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 12th, 2018. This is also only for iOS owners; the Android version of the game will launch at an undefined later date.
There are multiple reasons why Fortnite players would prefer PC instead of mobile, and there's not much to explain around that. For casual gamers though, we'd recommend waiting for a proper iOS and Android release on the App Store and Google Play respectively.
When Epic Games announced that Fornite will be coming to mobile devices, it made sure to inform players that this is the real deal. Just like the SMG, smoke grenades will be removed from the game for the forseeable future.
But after Fortnite revealed the addition of a brand new 20v20 combat mode Tuesday, they left fans with another wrinkle that could make the online gaming with friends even more spectacular. This is the real deal and progression syncs between other platforms and mobile with players also being able to play against others on non mobile platforms.
It may turn out to be the best Pokemon GO companion after all, and those who play Pokemon GO will surely get Fortnite.
