Fortnite Battle Royale is now available in beta form on iOS mobile devices, and the internet has gone crazy trying to figure out how to play it.
Well, that's where we come in. We've researched the absolute heck out of it to bring you this guide on how it all works so you can play with your friends on PS4 while you're on the toilet or getting your weekly groceries.
When will Fortnite come to mobile?
Fortnite Battle Royale is available on mobile right now, and has been since March 15th. Right now, it's limited to those who have been invited to the beta though. So while you can download it right now, you can't actually play it unless you have a beta invite.
How do I sign up to the Fortnite Mobile beta?
That's the easy part. Simply register your email on Epic's official Fortnite site and you'll receive a beta invite eventually. Epic is sending out invites in waves as the servers can handle more players.
I'm in the Fortnite beta! Can I invite my friends to play?
Yes. Those who have received an invite to the beta will receive a limited number of friend codes to send to their friends. This is effectively the same as a beta invite, providing your friends with access to the full experience on their phones. Check your email to see if you've got your friend codes yet.
Is the Fortnite mobile beta just for iOS users right now?
Sadly, yes it is.
Which iOS devices are compatible for Fortnite?
Basically, all devices that are compatible with iOS 11 can play Fortnite. If you own one of the following devices, you'll be fine:
- iPhone 6S
- iPhone SE
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 8
- iPhone X
- iPad Mini 4
- iPad Mini 5
- iPad Pro
- iPad Air 2
- iPad 2017
When will the Fortnite mobile beta come to Android?
All we know right now is that the Fortnite beta will come to Android "in the next few months". You can sign up to the Android beta right now though. You'll get notified as soon as it's available on that platform, and if you sign up now chances are you'll play faster!
How do I play Fortnite mobile with my friends on PS4?
By default, you'll play Fortnite on mobile against other mobile players. Playing with your friends on PS4 (and other platforms bar Xbox One!) is very easy though. You just have to join a squad with friends on PS4 and you'll switch over to cross platform play.
Can I play Fortnite on mobile with a Bluetooth controller?
Not right now, though Epic has assured us that controller support is coming at a later date.
Is voice chat supported in Fortnite mobile?
Again, not at the moment but it's coming! Just use Skype or similar app in the meantime.
So only PS4 cross play? I read that it also has cross play with PC and Xbox as well is this not true?
@Tasuki It does have cross play with PC and Xbox One as well, though PS4 users can't play in the same cross platform game as Xbox users. I hope that makes sense!
We covered the PS4 / mobile cross play because we're a PS4 site, but the same method applies for users of all platforms. Just join a squad with 'em and you can play in their games.
@FoxyGlen Ah ok makes sense. I was just wondering since I have friends on all the platforms. So basically I can play with PC and PS4 and mobile together but would have to play Xbox, PC and mobile separately.
