When it comes to the battle royale genre, it is currently Fortnite (and not PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds) that is kicking ass and taking names - and things are about to get a whole lot more interesting for Fortnite players. Epic Games just announced that Fortnite's battle royale mode is coming to mobile devices - and it supports cross play and cross progression between PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and also eventually Android.

"We believe this is the future of games," announces Epic. "The same game on all platforms. Console quality graphics and action. Play when you want, where you want." I think I can speak for most gamers when I say that we couldn't agree more.

We've wanted more cross-play opportunities between platforms for ages, and this is most definitively a giant leap in that direction. Fornite has supported cross-play between PS4 and PC from the start; it's just when it comes to cross-play between console that things get complicated.

We know that Fortnite does support cross-play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as it has shown up in the game on a few occasions. The first time cross play appeared was in September last year when a PlayStation 4 player claimed he was shot by an Xbox One player. Then, just a few days after the happy incident, Epic reported that they supposedly "fixed the mishap." But then, in January this year cross-play yet again appeared between Xbox One and PS4!

Be that as it may, at least Fortnite battle royale players will now be able to squad up together between mobile, PS4 and PC. The mobile version will also include 100-player maps, with the same content and weekly updates from the console and PC versions.

If you want to try out Fortnite battle royale on mobile, then make sure to log in at on Monday to request an invite. For now, it will only be available on iOS devices, with Android to follow. If your request has been approved, then you'll receive an email with a download link from the App Store. You'll also receive a code to invite a friend. If you didn't receive an invite, then you'll receive one later as Epic opens the game to more players on mobile.

Make sure you have a stable Internet connection, and an iOS 11 on the iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad 2017. In case you missed it; Fortnite's battle royale is getting a new mode that pits 5 teams of 20 players against each other.
