Fortnite Week 3 Challenges update Server downtime for Epic Games ahead of new 3.2 Patch

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. Epic Games says that the experience on phones and tablets will be the same as it is on PCs and consoles.

Ahem. Fortnite Battle Royale's mobile debut will begin on select iOS devices with signups set to open for an Invite Event next week. But, it claims it plans to add more players regularly over the following months. Joining the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac platforms, iOS players will be able to play their own version of the Battle Royale mode. If you're invited to participate, you'll also receive friend invite codes to share with friends. With invites being sent out in the near future, though, we will likely know soon enough.

For cross-platform play and progress, it is absolutely 100% possible for someone playing the desktop or PS4 version of the game to play with a mobile player. "Console quality graphics and action", said Epic Games. And with Epic offering even more ways to play the game, a Nintendo Switch port will hopefully be in the cards at some point, too.

Earlier this week a mum in the United Kingdom criticised the influence Fortnite: Battle Royale had had on her 10-year-old son, saying that her his obsession with the game had led to changes in his behaviour. If you don't receive an invite right away, don't worry.

From Monday, iOS users can sign up to declare their interest in an upcoming "Invite Event" with selected invitations being rolled out over a period of time afterwards.

Fortnite: Save The World is a co-op survival game using all the same gear and guns as you'll find in Fortnite Battle Royale, and charges the player with building defenses before facing down an onslaught of AI controlled zombies.

It's unknown if the game will follow the same free-to-play structure as the current console and PC versions, but it sounds like that will be the case. Players on PlayStation, PC and Xbox found themselves in the same matches over the course of a weekend, though the feature was later deactivated; Xbox and PlayStation tend not to let their player populations mix.

Here's all we know about Fortnite Mobile including release date rumours, early access information, gameplay and more.

Normally it's Microsoft that's the one that's keen on cross-play but their connection with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is probably what's kept them out of this deal. Those users will need to upgrade to iOS 11.
