Mobile Version Announced with Cross-Platform Play with Nearly All Other Versions

BlackBerry Productivity Tab with widget integration update now available!

Not content with its growing popularity on consoles and PC, Epic Games has announced that its battle royale hit Fortnite is also coming to iOS and Android mobile devices.

Once the mobile versions reach their final build, both iOS and Android will offer cross-play with PC, PlayStation 4 and even Mac.

Developers behind the hugely popular "Fortnite" video game are soon releasing an iOS version of the game for Apple mobile devices like iPhones, iPads, and iPods.

New Nintendo Direct Airing Tomorrow
There seems to be a third-party port announcement for the Switch in every Nintendo Direct , with Dark Souls being the most recent. Some fans are hoping to see Super Smash Bros . in the presentation, while others are expecting to see that property pop up in E3.

What's more, Epic is already taking mobile sign-ups for the game, starting this Monday for a special Invite Event on iOS.

Over the next few months Epic Games will be gradually letting small numbers of people play the game via invite events. With invites being sent out in the near future, though, we will likely know soon enough. As it now stands the battle royale section of the game is free-to-play, and it most definitely includes a ton of loot boxes. If you don't receive an invite right away, don't worry. When the invites start coming out, you will get an email. You'd have to imagine that console/PC players would have an advantage.

The latter is a massive online fight to the death, where 100 players jump out of planes and attempt to pick one another off with weapons (including rifles, crossbows, and grenade launchers) when they land. Further, users getting the invites will also get friend invite codes to share with friends. When it finally lands on Android, it will be game over. Available initially on iOS from Monday, 12 March, the survival game will also be coming to Android a few months down the line. Sony is usually adamantly against cross-play with other systems, so did they make a deal for console cross-play exclusivity? Let us know down in the comments! An internet connect is required, as well as iOS 11 running "on at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 devices". After registering on the game's official website, a user would get an email including the download link for the game.
