When is Fortnite mobile coming out on Android?

The most streamed artist on Spotify, whose latest hit God's Plan has spent the last seven weeks at number one on the USA singles chart, made waves this week when he joined the streaming video-game platform Twitch. With the event still ongoing, I sat down with an Epic Games representative to discuss the game's new home and its appeal. We want to also tune the game in response to feedback before opening it widely. Currently, Fortnite mobile is only available for iOS devices AND by invitation only. So while you can download it right now, you can't actually play it unless you have a beta invite. So everyone who signed up should keep an eye on their inbox, or find a friend who got in and ask them for an invite! Probably the most notable concession is due to the knowledge many mobile gamers will be playing with sound turned off, so Fortnite iOS adds in visual indicators for sources of noise.

At the moment, the game is only available on iOS devices and even then you have to be personally invited to play the game. It's not that Epic doesn't want console cross-play, it's more that Microsoft and Sony have to come to some sort of agreement before it happens.

Because you're using an Epic account, all of your details and your friends list will be carried between platforms so that means you get to enjoy cross-progression too.

The official Fortnite Twitter account tweeted around 2.30pm GMT to say the new LTM for Battle Royale had gone live. Twitch, which is owned by retail behemoth Amazon, saw in the success signs for future growth of the platform, in which video-game aficionados watch and interact with players online.

The best thing to do when dropping in the mobile version of "Fortnite" is to go straight for Tilted Towers. We think it's an important, exciting step... we hope players agree! In February, the game surpassed 3.4 million concurrent players, and Forbes reported close to 40 million people are playing the game.
