Fortnite for iOS gets a massive update, here are all the changes
Fortnite is already a major success on iOS raking in $1.5 million in just four days. Well, the folks over at Epic Games are taking great care of their investment, so it's no wonder that the game is getting a huge update so soon after its release.

Dubbed v3.4, the new update introduces Guided Missile, as well as some highly requested “quality-of-life” improvements to Save the World such as the addition of Combat Pro control scheme and removal of Energy from sprinting.

There are a bunch of improvements included in the update, such as party text chat, a new game data download system, and antialiasing:

  • Added ‘Unsupported Device’ message at startup for certain devices. That message is: "We're sorry. Fortnite requires a device with 2GB of memory to run. Fortnite works with: iPhone SE, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X; iPad Mini 4, Air 2, 2017, Pro."
  • Added new game data download system, which will allow us to make much smaller updates in the future. When you start up this new version of Fortnite, it will start downloading all the game data, which will be the full size (around 1.8GB).
  • Antialiasing (4x MSAA) is now enabled on all supported devices.
  • Whispers and Party Text Chat are now enabled on mobile.
  • Added a quick tutorial for ‘Tap to Swing’ which appears upon first startup.
  • Added a message informing players that jailbroken devices are not supported.
  • Auto-opening of doors is now based on input instead of your player’s current speed.

Additionally, a bucketload of bug fixes has been added in the update too. You can find the full changelog of version 3.4 at the source link below.

I loaded it up. I might be getting too old for games, but didn’t make it past the character screen because I couldn’t figure out how to change the female character it gave me to male. Never even played it. If you can’t even make your own character, def not something I’d be interested in.

I think the character gender is generated at random, sometimes I get male and sometimes female. The only way to change appearance/customise you character is to buy skins which are rather expensive. But as this a free to play game they have to make their money somehow, so no complaints here. The skin doesn't make difference to actual gameplay, it just aesthetics.

Be glad they even thought about developing Fornite for the crap OS! Now wait patiently while iOS users enjoy Fornite with our best in class GPU and CPU performance! #iOS

I was surprised to see this game lets users play each other on all platforms. Wonder if you can disable something on the mobile version to make sure you don't play against the console and/or PC versions. Since you would lose big time

Ow this game is so bad. It's like playing a game with both of your hands broken. Such pathetic controls. But so many people play it O.o We older gamers ... we probably never settle for something as pathetic. BTW Android knows what a mouse is. It must be a slaughter if Android user plays with a mouse and keyboard.

Do not worry, if I am not mistaken you would have to especially chose you want to be destroyed by PC players. By default it's disabled.
