Epic Games has officially released a beta version of Fortnite on mobile, so now anyone with an iPhone SE / 6S or later running iOS 11 can easily download the game from using respectable stores and jump into a match. Epic Games announced the news on its Twitter feed this morning. Previously, Fortnite on iOS was available in an invite-only beta period, though invites were purposely given out and friends were able to invite up to three more players to join the free-to-play platform. Any willful user can download the game from the App Store or from Play Store.
It’s been a milestone-breaking and good news for gamers who follow Epic since the beginning, Fortnite has experienced a meteoric rise in both sales, popularity, and mainstream recognition. The game’s free-to-play business model, which sustains itself purely on a mix of clever in-game costumes, items, and an optional three-month subscription service which helped the game in the best way and its rival and battle royale pioneer Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, commonly known as PUBG. But the fun factor of this game, combined with Epic’s breakneck update cycle, is what’s helped Fortnite remain at the forefront of the online multiplayer scene since the day it got launched.
Previously in the last week, Epic Games added a new and improved snipers-only game mode, a ludicrous homing missile weapon, and a number of in-game clues pointing toward the destruction of the game’s Tilted Towers section, a potentially game-changing event for a persistent multiplayer game that now attracts the whole community talking and swapping theories on online forums. Now iOS has included in it and everyone can use it, this seems like Epic will only continue to add more players.
