Fortnite for iPhone – Invites Going Out Today, Cross-Play & Cross-Progression Confirmed

Epic Games has notified iOS users who signed up for the mobile edition of Fortnite. One of the most popular games in the world right now with tens of millions of registered users and over 3 million concurrent players on PC alone at one time, the PS4, Xbox One, PC sensation is now coming to iOS devices (and in a few months, Android as well).

As a great bonus, players who enjoy Fortnite on their iPhone will be able to sign back into their console or PC Gaming Rig and benefit from the progress achieved on mobile. Now you can just pretend to be a beneficial part of society sorting out important emails when in reality you’re just a Fortnite junkie like the rest of the world. Completely respectable, barely detectable.

Cross-Play is enabled on this as well for certain systems. Although, players will probably mostly be paired with other mobile gamers through matchmaking – hopefully the ability to squad up with your friends at home on their PS4 Pro will be enabled from your iPhone 6S or even better Samsung Galaxy S8+. Everyone knows iPhone is the weaker of the smartphone technologies, but while waiting for the Android version to release ‘we gotta do what we gotta do’. Just think, if they can get Fortnite to run on that weak iOS hardware then it’ll easily blow us away on Samsung’s pride and joy Galaxy S series.

Xbox players will not be part of the cross-play feature as Sony has made a major investment in Fortnite making the mobile version possible, and they do not want any cross-play between Xbox and PlayStation users. That’s probably a revenge move since when PS3 was the less popular console in last generation’s console wars, Microsoft kept denying Sony’s request for PS3 users to be able to play with Xbox 360 owners. Karma is a… well, you know the saying.
