"We believe this is the future of games", Epic Games wrote in their announcement.

Fornite coming to Android is part of Epic Games' continued efforts to make the game available across all platforms with the same "console quality graphics and action". When you pit those same players against those playing on an iOS or Android using the touchscreen, it might pose a whole new challenge to offer a fair gameplay experience. Those who receive a code will be able to invite their friends, and those who don't will have to wait until the next round of testing begins.

Those who sign up will receive email invites allowing you to download the game from the App store. Though several battle royale clones already exist on the mobile marketplace, there are good chances that both PUBG and Fortnite Battle Royale will become the first preference of the gamers. Will this leave smartphone players at a disadvantage compared to console and keyboard-and-mouse players?

As you'd imagine the game will need a fairly recent iOS device, with the supported models being iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or higher. It features a Battle Royale mode where up to 100 players, of squads or individuals, compete to be the last man or team to stay alive. We will keep you posted when more Android news rolls around, but for now, be excited that Fortnite Battle Royale will soon grace your phone and support cross-play to boot!

For now, there's no definite release date for Fortnite on mobile. But to clear up any confusion, think as Fortnite as two games. If you register on the the game's official website, that'll get you on the email list. With this being the case, players will be able to join up with friends across different devices in order to play with one another without being inhibited by not having the same piece of hardware.
