Fortnite is now available for everyone on iOS, no invite needed
Developer Epic Games has just announced Fortnite for mobile is now open everywhere on iOS. The game doesn't require an invite so that you can play, so no matter where you're located, you can now download Fortnite for free via App Store.

Up until now, iOS users would only be allowed to download and play Fortnite if they were lucky enough to receive an invitation from Epic Games. The studio has been slowly rolling out invites for Fortnite since it was released in the App Store, but the number of players that could get into the game was pretty limited.

Well, that's not the case any longer since you can now start playing Fortnite right now, as long as you own a compatible iOS device. Speaking of compatibility, the game supports all iOS devices powered by iOS 11, including iPhone 6S, iPhone SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 and iPad 2017. Fortnite will not work on the following devices: iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, and iPod Touch.



Keep in mind that in order to play Fortnite, you'll need an internet connection at all times. If you've played the PC or console version, you'll be pleased to know that the mobile game is pretty much the same, not a lightweight port.

Also, the game supports cross-platform functionality between PlayStation 4 and iOS, but this option can be disabled. According to Epic Games, an Android version of the game will be launched in the next few months.

They should just forget about Android,most of the phones probably aren't even able to support Flappy Birds, you can forget about Fornite!

Whats the point if i can't even log in on the pc version. I have to wait 45 mins before logging on because the severs are "too busy". 45 mins count down to log in. :/

I've never experienced this on my Xbox One or the mobile version. Guess PC's aren't always the best for playing games....

Never a 45 min wait for an update! Unless your still using a dial up connection....

The speed of your internet connection has nothing to do with this issue. Error 37 does ring any bell? Too many players, DDOS essentially ;)

Android is always better than iOS when it comes to features and customization. But iOS is always better than Android when it comes to games. Agree?

Precisely why you buy an iPad alongside an Android phone

Yeah, I would agree. It's not affecting good games, that are a joy to play on a touchscreen, but this garbage certainly goes to android often a bit later.

But then you'd have all other Andriod owners complaining. They can't please everyone, so in this case they've decided to do a general Anrdoid release which is probably the best option. Anyway, I've gotta go, playing Fortnite on my iOS device.... #iOS

Nothing about being lazy, iOS is just significantly easier and faster to create games and apps for.
