Fortnite, the game that started in the shadow of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds last year, has taken off to become the most watched, and played battle royale game. Following the success on PC and consoles, Fortnite hit iOS devices in a closed beta a couple of weeks back, which was an invite only affair. Until now.

Epic Games has been very generous in giving out invites for Fortnite on iOS, where a lot of people got access, and friends could also invite their friends to play. The game is now out of the beta phase, and available to everyone with a compatible iOS device. Anyone with an Apple device that is a iPhone SE or iPhone 6s or later, and iPad mini 4 / Air 2 or later, running iOS 11 will be able to download from the App Store and play Fortnite.

Epic Games has not given out a date for when the Android version of the popular game is coming out, but it should eventually be available on the most popular mobile platform as well. All that is known about the progress for the Android version is that “support is coming within the next few months.”

And for those that want to be alerted on the progress of the launch of the Android version of the game, can go to the official Fortnite website and sign up for the Fortnite mobile experience.

Fortnite has come a long way since its inception, and this is due to an extremely active developer team over at Epic Games, that came out with prompt updates and content. Fortnite’s free-to-play model helped as well, where the money made by the company is from in-game cosmetic items.
