Fortnite Battle Royale Mobile Getting PS4 Cross Play And Progression

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

To cut those off before the run wild, and to get that money for itself, Epic Games is announcing Fortnite Battle Royale for iOS and, soon, Android.

Additionally, they're planning to support Cross Play and Cross Progression between PC, PlayStation 4, Mac, iOS, and, later on, Android. Support for Android is coming "in the next few months", Epic noted.

The game would probably look and perform better on the Nintendo Switch and we can't forget the Unreal Engine, Epic's in-house engine, does run on the Switch so the tools are there.

With the news you can play Fortnite on a tablet and a phone, it only makes sense for a Switch version to come down the road.

But there is cross-platform play for PS4 owners, who can play with PC, iOS and Mac owners from Monday, March 12. After registering on the game's official website, a user would get an email including the download link for the game. Developer Epic has just updated the map to add more locations, including a new city and mines and showing more love to the Western portion of the map in general.

With games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (known as PUBG) and Fortnite: Battle Royale being as popular as they are on PC and consoles, it was only a matter of time until they made it to mobile.

Unfortunately for Android users, the answer to when will Fortnite be on mobile is less immediate. You can check out the Fortnite game in the video above. It's actually the exact same way that the system functions between desktop and PS4 console players right now.

Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see which of the two will achieve more success. A 20-player team event is rolling out to the game now, and they're still working on the jetpack, which could bring massive changes to the Fortnite: Battle Royale experience. That might sound annoying, but it means that matches won't last forever, which is only a good thing.

Speaking of switches, if FBR can run on mobile devices, it's not unlikely that it won't also be able to comfortably perform on a Nintendo Switch.
