Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile with PS4 and PC cross-play

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

The iOS version releases on Monday!

Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile, and much sooner than anyone expected.

Not content with just dominating the PC and console realms, Epic Games will be launching an iOS release of the dominant chicken dinner game (sorry PUBG) on Monday, March 12. Android users don’t need to be too upset however, as the game will also be making its way there “in the next few months.”

The mobile version is planned to match the current PC and console release full, with the “same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.” It’ll even support cross-play and progression with the PlayStation 4 and PC versions, as well as with Android (when it releases). This means you’ll be able to join matches with your friends even if they’re playing on a different platform. Keeping a consistent version across all platforms is the long-term plan for Epic Games, which means the mobile version can expect to enjoy all the same additions and new modes such as this week’s Teams of 20 mode.

If you want to join in on iOS, you’ll need to sign up for an Invite during the early stages. To do this, simply head to the Fortnite website on March 12 and follow the sign up link. Invites will be rolled out “soon after.” Better yet, if you get an invite, you’ll be given extra codes to send out to your friends, too. Bear in mind that you’ll need iOS 11 on the following devices to play: iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017.
