While the delayed jetpack is still without a release date for Fornite: Battle Royale, developer Epic Games has now announced a new item coming to the popular multiplayer shooter.

"Fortnite" players who can't stand the thought of being away from their favorite video game got a treat Monday. "Fortnite" can already be played on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PCs.

To play Fortnite Battle Royale on iOS, you'll need an iPhone 6S, iPhone SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, or an iPad Air 2.

When does Fortnite come to mobile? "Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates". If you go to Fortnite.com/mobile, you can put in your email, and Epic will email you with a link to download the game from the App Store. What this means is you and your friends can play together regardless of the device they're using.

The game now is invite only for the iOS but you can get your invite by going Here.


Sadly, there was no mention of Xbox One - PS4 cross-play suggesting that Sony is still maintaining its stance against cross-play between the two platforms. "Microsoft has always been a leading voice in encouraging the adoption of multiplatform games and the potential to connect players through PCs, mobile devices and all consoles".

Fortnite has recently skyrocketed in popularity, making it an attractive target for hackers.

"Save the World uses way more memory and CPU resources than Battle Royale and would be very hard to bring to mobile devices", a message from Epic Games explains.

The Fortnite Mobile gaming experience will be rolling out over the course of several months so you must be patient if you have not yet received an invitation from Epic Games. Just this week, a fan tweeted Microsoft's Phil Spencer sayting "We really want cross-play system between XB1 and PS4".
