Sign-ups for a trial version of Fortnite: Battle Royale on mobile are now live, giving iOS users a chance to try it early.
As the name implies, Fortnite Battle Royale‘s iOS Invite Event is invite only, so anyone interested will need to sign up on developer Epic’s website. In order to take part, players will need an internet connection, as well as an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, iPad Pro, or a newer Apple device with iOS 11. Android users can also sign up for the trial, but the trial is not currently available on this platform, with Android support coming in “the next few months.”
Not everyone will be selected to take part in the trial, but those that make the cut will receive an email with a download link shortly after signing up. The email will include additional codes to hand out to friends, and those that aren’t selected will have new chances down the line as the test is opened up to more players.
While some may wonder how Fortnite Battle Royale will make the transition to mobile, the developer assured us in a recent blog post that the mobile version will feature the “same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.” It will also support cross-play and cross-progression between PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android, although PS4 and Xbox One players are still being kept apart.
Fortnite Battle Royale does not currently have a mobile release date.
