Fortnite Battle Royale is not a split screen game, and officially it is not cross platform between consoles, so you can not play on PS4 with your friends on Xbox One, for example. What is impressive though, is that this mobile version is planned to exist right alongside the PC and console releases, as it will include the exact same content and update schedule. You'll be able to sign up at Fornite's website starting March 12, and you'll receive an invite "shortly thereafter" by email if you're accepted.

Epic Games have published news regarding a new project that will spread the Fortnite fever across the whole world. You can play the game with friends no matter what platform you play it on.

"We believe this is the future of games", Epic writes in its announcement.

Epic Games claims the mobile version of the game will bring "console quality graphics and action".

For those of you who don't know, Fortnite Battle Royale is a 100-person FPS free-for-all where you fight to be the last man standing. Epic will add more players on a month to month basis. We're yet to get any hands-on time with the game and thus don't know much about the touch controls, but the silver lining is that the game will also support MFi controllers, helping to give iOS players an edge against PC and console players. 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.

"Fortnite Battle Royale" is heading to iOS device first and Android later.

"Fortnite Battle Royale" for mobile. So, iOS users will be able to take on Android when the support arrives.

Although Fortnite Battle Royale is free to download, if you're playing on Xbox One you will have to pay for Xbox Live Gold to play online. Your roommate plays it, you hear your boyfriend talk about it with his buddies or maybe you played it once at a friends' house.

Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see which of the two will achieve more success. However, it's XXXTentacion that winds up having arguably the best moment on the song, and it all stems from a reference to Epic's popular video game.
