Epic is bringing the massively popular Fortnite: Battle Royale to iOS and Android devices, but before the game officially launches on mobile, some iOS users will have a chance to try it out early. Sign-ups for an invite-only trial are now open on Epic's official website (though as of this writing, the website has temporarily gone down for maintenance.)
Both iOS and Android users can sign up for the trial, but only those with the former devices will be able to participate for the time being; Epic says an Android test will follow "in the next few months." Players will need an internet connection and an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, iPad Pro, or a newer Apple device with iOS 11 in order to play the game.
If you're selected to take part in the test, you'll receive an email that contains a link to download the mobile version of Fortnite: Battle Royale shortly after signing up, as well as codes to share with your friends. Even if you aren't initially chosen to participate, you'll still have a chance to get in at a later date. Epic says it will send out more invites "as the servers can handle more players."
Epic says the mobile version of Fortnite: Battle Royale will be the same 100-player experience currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will boast the "same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates," Epic explained in a forum post on its website. "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."
