Fortnite: Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices, Epic announced today. Most intriguingly, this is the same 100-player experience, and it will support cross-play for some systems. Thanks to a partnership with Sony, the game will support cross-play and cross-progression between PS4, PC, Mac, iOS, and (eventually) Android. The Xbox One edition doesn't support this.
"Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates," Epic said. "We believe this is the future of games. The same game on all platforms. Console quality graphics and action. Play when you want, where you want."
As for the cross-play support, Epic said you'll be able to join a squad and play together with friends on different platforms. That sounds pretty cool, and it'll be interesting to see how it works in practice. You'd have to imagine that console/PC players would have an advantage.
Sign-ups will open on Monday for an invite-only test on iOS. Android will follow "in the next few months."
