Because today is the day of big announcements, we've also got word that Epic Games are bringing Fortnite Battle Royal to iOS and Android.

It's not a weird conversion, or downsized experience either. Instead, these features will be limited to PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS, and eventually Android. 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.

Players have roughly two months to complete all the tiers in this season which may seem like a long time but keep in mind the Season 3 Battle Pass has increased from 70 tiers to 100 tiers.

In Fortnite Battle Royale, you drop onto a map and compete against 99 other players. Details should be available soon on the Fortnite page, though the company noted that you'll need to be updated to iOS 11, and have an iPhone 6S/6E, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 or an iPad 2017 device. Intriguingly this doesn't include the Xbox One family of consoles. At the risk of sounding like an ancient man (too late), the notion that you can be made a fool of by your students who could be filming you at the time, allowing millions to virtually dunk on you for eternity, has got to be a scary feeling. Epic Games looks to have signed an exclusive agreement on that front with Sony.

Epic Games did not give us an exact release for Fortnite: Battle Royale for Android. "We'll be adding more players regularly over the coming months". The developer assured players that both the graphics and gameplay experienced by PC and console players will be the same on mobile devices. Well, you might want to reconsider that, as Epic claims these new versions will be exactly the same as the ones on PC and consoles. Invitees will also receive codes to share with their friends, says Epic.
