Fortnite Battle Royale has just arrived on mobile platforms, and the game is already reaching some crazy popularity milestones.

The iOS version of the game began its beta on March 16th, and in just a few hours rose to the top of the charts in the “Free Apps” category. Even more impressive, though, is the fact that the beta is invite-only, meaning that the app hasn’t simply taken off through people seeing it in the charts and downloading it. Each and every person who downloaded it had to have received an invitation, and the first batch of invitations was sent out only hours before the app’s popularity boom from Epic Games.

The data for Fortnite‘s mobile port comes from Sensor Tower, which keeps track of downloads for specific software and apps by monitoring the App Store.

At the moment, Fortnite Battle Royale is still in beta on iOS. Epic Games plans to continue to test and fine-tune the game before it launches in full. An Android version is also currently in the works.

Fortnite Battle Royale is currently available in on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, with a beta version open on iOS. An Android version of the game is set to release later in 2018.
