Fortnite Mobile Already Has a Major Clone Competitor

Looks like PS4 vs. Xbox One cross-play on Fornite isn’t happening after all

Over the weekend, we learned from Epic Games' announcement that Xbox One would have cross-play with PC, Android, and iOS, but not PS4.

While a version of Fortnite: Battle Royale has been announced for mobile devices, it is not now available.

Could it be that because the PS4 has massively outsold the Xbox One, that Sony doesn't want to aid Microsoft game player counts? We've worked closely with Nintendo to allow cross-network play between Xbox One and Switch and our offer to do the same with PlayStation players still holds.

Gamers would no doubt love to broaden the crop of available players to compete against by bringing the PS4 into the mix, but Sony has been reticent to such endeavors in the past. "Cross-platform is already allowed between mobile, PC and Xbox or Playstation players, therefore proving there are no system limitations preventing this from happening".

The clarification came soon after Xbox boss Phil Spencer answered to a gamer on Twitter that he too would like to know when Xbox One and PS4 players will be able to play Fortnite together. Sony gets grumpy about letting ecosystems mix, so they're now blocking Xbox One users from joining the fun, but they can still play on their own with fellow Xbox gamers.

Sounds like Jenner has nothing to be embarrassed about, so who knows why she later regretted the tweet. Since giving birth , Kylie has been pretty quiet about her daughter, Stormi Webster , until now.

A cross-play between both consoles is very feasible from a technical perspective, something that developers have been discussing for a long time.

So maybe in the future when mobile phones can pack more power we might see more games live Save the World launch, but right now that isn't going to happen. It will be interesting to see if/how exploits like rocket riding will work on mobile devices, if at all.

Starting Monday, users can sign-up for the Invite Event on iOS.

One important thing to note is that, despite the all-encompassing cross-play, an Xbox One vs PS4 cross-play is not happening.

The mobile Fortnite is set to be the exact same as other platforms with the same graphics and gameplay, as well as the regular weekly updates. The mobile build will require you to have iOS 11 installed on one of the following devices: iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017.
