It will not be inaccurate to say that a huge number of people are waiting to try out what you can say is the most popular game in the world on one of the most popular phones. Fortnite developer Epic Games has now started sending out invites for its iOS “Invite Event”. But it has only sent it to a handful of people to begin with.
This stems from the fact that people who will be playing the game first will essentially be beta testing the whole iOS experience of Fortnite. So, Epic Games would like to iron out the major chinks in the game before sending invites to a larger audience.

Now, Fortnite on the App Store is marked as an “Invite Event” but is downloadable, and the game client has a hefty size of 2GB. But once you have downloaded the game, only those accounts that have received an invite from a friend or Epic Games will be able to log in. The game will only run on iOS 11 which is the latest version, so it is a good idea to check the version you iPhone is running before you try and download.
Epic Games has said that only iPhone 6s and newer devices will be able to run the game and would require a constant internet connection.
Signing up for a iOS invite for Fortnite
Signing up to get an invite for the iOS event for Fortnite is rather easy. To get started, go to the Fortnite website, and click on the “Invite event on iOS, Sign up now” button on the left. This will lead to a page that will be titled “Invite event on iOS” and here find the button that says “Sign up for email invite and follow the steps.
Epic Games will be connecting your previous account if you already have one, and if not you can just sign up for a fresh account and the invite email will be sent to the newly registered email. Once you are on the waitlist, it is only a matter of time before you get the invite from Epic Games. But, if one of your friends already has an invite, ask them for an invite and that could save you the time you had to wait for one.
