Fortnite hit mobile platforms for the first today, March 12th. Epic Games has made its battle royale game available on PC and consoles and now has branched out into the mobile universe.
There is, however, some confusion on how to mobile version is working with other format and when it is becoming available, so this is going to clear all that up.

Fortnite mobile sign up

Fortnite is now available on mobile as of today. You will, however, need to have an invite and not everyone will be granted one of those. You can sign up on the official site for the Invite Event on iOS and then wait. Invites will be mailed out to download the game from the App Store. All of the invites will also include invite codes for friends.

With the popularity of the game, there is expected to be a long waiting list. Epic has said the game will start small and add more players over the next few months. 

Will Fortnite mobile be coming to Android devices?

 The mobile game is planned on coming to Android devices in the future. The official response from Epic is that “support for Android will be coming in the next few months.” So Android users will have to wait for the iOS version to be successful first.

How will it compare to PC, Xbox One, and PS4?

According to Epic, Fortnite mobile will be the same as it is on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. That means 100 people per map, with the same loot and progressions. It is also complete with weekly challenges and updates.

Fortnite mobile will also support cross-platform play with PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Mac. Gameplay and progression will work and be saved across all formats.
