Fortnite Players from Multiple Platforms Can Soon Battle It Out
Fortnite will soon feature cross-play between Xbox One, PC, Mac and iOS versions. In addition, these features will be added to Android versions in the next few months.
Although the battle royale game has been available on Xbox One and PC since July of last year, mobile games were just announced on March 10. Epic Games said that mobile versions are “the same 100-player game you know from Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac,” with the “same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.”
The full announcement from Epic Games is below.
“Hey Fortnite Community,
We’re happy to announce today that in partnership with our friends at Microsoft, Fortnite will feature cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase, between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and (in the next few months) Android.
Contrary to what may have been implied, Microsoft has long been a leading voice in supporting cross-platform play, connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles. We’ve been working together with them over the last several months to make this possible, and will bring this functionality to Fortnite players on Xbox right along with other platforms.
With each new platform we support and every update we ship, we strive to bring Fortnite to more people, and make it easier to play together with friends. And, as always, cross-play is opt in.
As we shared a few days ago, starting Monday you can sign-up for the Fortnite Invite Event on iOS. On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac. Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.
See you on the Battle Bus,
Fornite has gained ground on PUBG, its biggest competitor, in recent months. And H1Z1, which was released before the both of them, recently went free-to-play in the face of decreasing player count.
