Fortnite: Battle Royale is heading to iOS and Android

Fortnite-FI-2

Nintendo wasn't the only ones with surprising news, Epic Games confirmed that Fortnite is coming to iOS and Android devices. It will also feature cross play and cross-progression between PS4, PC, Mac, iOS, and also on Android when the game comes to that platform.

You can pick up Fortnite for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. How mobile players are going to compete with PS4 and PC players, and how Epic has implemented controls for mobile is going to be interesting to see! The title recently became the most-watched and most-streamed game on Twitch, with double the amount of PUBG's viewers on the platform. It's a tense game with plenty of light-hearted moments and the cartoony graphics make it fun to watch and now, with the arrival of a mobile version, you never need to be far from the action. Starting Monday you can sign up for the Fortnite iPhone app and if you are selected you can start playing.

Those chosen will receive an email with instructions on how to download the game to their device. Support for an Android version is coming in a few month's time. The game will expand to more players over the coming months.

Another winter storm could impact the northeast next week
Schools in several MA districts were ordered closed Thursday as the Northeast prepares for a second winter storm in as many weeks. A compact but powerful nor'easter will skirt the New Jersey coast Wednesday afternoon before heading toward Cape Cod.

Unfortunately for Android users, the answer to when will Fortnite be on mobile is less immediate.

Unlike the two PUBG mobile games, which were handed off to another company, Epic Games will handle the mobile versions of Fortnite: Battle Royal in-studio. Once you've received your invite code, you'll then be able to share that with your friends.

It'll also allow "Fortnite" players to play the game wherever they bring their mobile devices - away from the constraints of home consoles and computers.

Chip and Joanna Gaines Reveal Sex of Fifth Baby
Chip adds that the only D name for a boy that he can come up with is "Dragon", which sends Gage into a giggling fit. During this conversation, Chip broke the news that the baby - his and Joanna's fifth - will be a son.

Fans can expect the full Fortnite Battle Royale experience. The game has blown up since its release late a year ago, but where did it come from and why is it such a big deal? You can check out the Fortnite game in the video above. You'd have to imagine that console/PC players would have an advantage.

And the best thing is, the game won't differ from its desktop/console counterparts.
