This was achieved through Epic's partnership with Sony, which means progression in the game can be saved across PS4, PC, Mac, iOS and "eventually" Android.

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. What is impressive though, is that this mobile version is planned to exist right alongside the PC and console releases, as it will include the exact same content and update schedule. Starting Monday, you can sign-up for the Invite Event on iOS.

A select number of iOS users who register will receive invites for the game soon after, with additional invites being sent out regularly over the coming months. Those that are invited will also get friend codes invites that they're able to share with other players.

An authentic mobile port for Fortnite: Battle Royale makes sense as the market of potential players on consoles and gaming PCs starts to get saturated.

On iOS devices, Fortnite Battle Royale will require iOS 11 and an internet connection. You can sign up on the Epic / Fortnite Battle Royale site. Inside, you'll find a link to download the game at the App Store. And what's even more interesting, is that there's no word of crossplay support with Xbox One, despite Microsoft's stated willingness to support the feature.

Android support is believed to be coming "in the next few months". The title recently became the most-watched and most-streamed game on Twitch, with double the amount of PUBG's viewers on the platform.

Are you excited to play the newest version of Fortnite? With Microsoft now being the only console to house PUBG - we could be on the cusp of a Battle Royale, err, console exclusivity battle. Alas, Fortnite is going mobile. Is there a chance of Fortnite coming to the Nintendo Switch? A total of 45 million others own the game and play it on either their consoles or their desktop computers.
