iOS users around the world can now play Epic Games’ Fortnite Battle Royale. The game, which was initially an invite-only test, was officially made available on the iOS via the developer’s official Twitter account.
It’s no secret Fortnite Battle Royale has been wildly successful for its developer. The game has already surpassed PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in revenue, raking in more than US$126 million (~RM487 million) back in February.
Fortnite is also the first MMO shooter title that introduce cross-platform play between PC, iOS, PS4, and Xbox One players, albeit not between the last two ports in the list for obvious reasons. Even the rate at which Epic Games updates the game has been deemed by its fan base as efficient and really fast.

Bear in mind, Epic Games did state in the same Twitter posts that the game will not be supported on the iPhone 5S, 6, 6 Plus, iPad Air, Mini 2, Mini 3, and iPod.
Sadly, the game isn’t quite ready to be deployed on the Android ecosystem just yet, and we can understand why. Optimising games for Android devices tends to be a bit more difficult than Apple devices, on account that the hardware used in Android phones could either be more powerful or ill-equipped to handle such titles.
