How Would Fortnite Mobile Hold Up?
Sometimes you just need to get your Fortnite fix, no matter where you are. Epic Games is looking to help feed that addiction with a mobile version of the popular free-to-play battle royale game mode. It’s coming to iOS first, with Android devices getting it not long after.
Don’t expect a washed-down version of the game, either. The development team reassures us of its quality in a recent blog post.
“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.”
Partial cross-play will even be offered. iOS and Android users will be able to play together, with account progress tracking between mobile, console, and PC.
Select individuals will be invited to participate in pre-release test games. Those interested can register on the game’s official website. If chosen, you’ll receive an email in the future with invite codes for you and your friends. This begins on March 12.
Epic Games is taking the Minecraft approach to gaming: Porting it to every platform known to man.
“We believe this is the future of games. The same game on all platforms. Console quality graphics and action. Play when you want, where you want.”
Would you play it?
