The popularity of the game has seen Fortnite streamers getting a huge bump in Twitch subscriptions, which has been attributed to Twitch Prime's free channel subscriptions.

Epic has assured that the game they're bringing to these mobile and tablet devices will be the same 100 player Battle Royale that you know and love.

According to the studio, this mobile version of the game will make relatively few compromises in terms of translating the existing version of Battle Royale to mobile platforms.

Starting Monday, March 12, "Fortnite" faithful with iOS devices may begin signing up for an Invite Event. Android users, on the other hand, will be left out in the cold and will have to wait a few months before seeing the game head their way.

Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices, Epic has announced. If you are one of the lucky ones to try it out early, you will be able to share the love with friend codes to give out. Users must have at least an iPhone 6S, iPhone SE, iPad mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 or any of the 2017 models of the iPad. It's an interesting move from a console maker that continues to stand in the way of cross-console play between the PS4 and Xbox One or Switch. When you are invited, you will receive an email with a link to download the game from the App Store. Console quality graphics and action. Play on mobile and carry on over to your console when you're ready. In the meantime, we'll have to be content with the current mobile option for Fortnite: Battle Royale. Going by their performance so far, Fortnite seems to be a little ahead. Sony has said it doesn't allow cross-play for games like Minecraft and Rocket League due to the risks posed to younger players. That means that players can continue to progress on the go on either iOS or Android, and then jump back into the same account once they are home on PlayStation 4.

Although, it was initially viewed as a cartoonish version of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), Fortnite has quickly become a gaming phenomenon.
