Update, March 10: Epic Games have clarified that Fortnite cross-platform support will include Xbox One.
Fortnite continues its march across platforms, and cross-play, cross-purchase, and cross-progression will soon be supported on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Mac, and iOS, with Android support coming later.
Nearly 5,000 years of Fortnite have been streamed on Twitch – in just two weeks.
“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,” Epic said in a post today. “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.”
Original story, March 9: Epic Games have announced Fortnite Battle Royale is making its way to iOS and Android, with cross-play and cross-progression support.
Fortnite Battle Royale on mobile devices promises to be the exact same game as its PC and console brethren, including the same weekly updates, maps, content, and gameplay.
“We believe this is the future of games,” Epic Games wrote in their announcement. “The same game on all platforms. Console quality graphics and action. Play when you want, where you want.”
In addition, Epic Games have revealed Fortnite Battle Royale will support both cross-play and cross-progression between PlayStation 4, Windows, Mac, iOS, and eventually Android.
There’s no confirmed date for Fortnite Battle Royale’s mobile release and no word on whether it will be free like its console and PC counterparts.
In the meantime, you can sign-up for an Invite Event on iOS from Monday 12. However, support for Android will take an extra few months. For more details, click here.
