'Fortnite Battle Royale' Goes Live On iOS

'Fortnite Battle Royale' Goes Live On iOS

Developer Epic Games is capitalizing on the game's skyrocketing popularity with an esports tournament in June, a major event that will feature pro Fortnite players as well as celebrities of all stripes.

"Today we're emailing the first round of invites for the Fortnite Invite Event on iOS", says Epic. Fortnite, developed by Epic Games, seems to be winning in their battle against their primary competition, PUBG.

If none of these apply to you and the game still keeps crashing, keep an eye on the Fortnite Twitter.

That's not a completely awful thing, as you can tap on the "NO" button and be added to the waiting list from right within the app. As well as new Fortnite skins and a new Fortnite Battle Pass, v3.0 also brings the powerful Handcannon to the game. And if you have your invite, get downloading and get playing, let us know what you think! For that reason, it will take a couple of days to reach out for your device.

Once logged, you will see your normal account with its current progression, items, and friends.

And it turns out that "soon" means now, as Fortnite is already the No. 1 iPhone game in the U.S. "We expect to rollout Android in the next few months".

Kentucky State Police search for suspect in Pikeville Police officer's killing
Kentucky State Police have a fifth man in custody in connection with the killing of a police officer this week. That's when Martin heard a gunshot and returned to find Hamilton with a fatal gunshot wound, police said.

Once you've been accepted into the game, you'll receive an email from Epic Games where you can activate your account and subsequently log into the Fortnite app on iOS.

No other game has attempted this.

Unfortunately, not everyone who has signed up is going to receive an invite this round.

The mobile iOS version of Fortnite is now live on the App Store and invites are on their way!

Hardcore PUBG fans have one more reason to be jealous of Fortnite, as the title is now available on iPhones and comes with extensive cross-play support. Epic also notes that the game is still in an early state, so don't be surprised if you run into bugs and issues while playing.

You will be directed to the Apple App store where you can download Fortnite Mobile.
