Fortnite Mobile Beta FAQ How to Sign Up and Play with Your Friends on PS4

The Fortnite announcement only states that it is a "limited-time" mode. They'll then send you a link to get the free app. People who have access to the game can send a couple invites of their own, but this is on a case-by-case basis.

Now mobile Fortnite will only be available to iOS11 users, meaning that it doesn't yet support Android devices. What makes this really impressive is the fact that the game is not only iOS-exclusive at the moment, but also its invite-only system which artificially slows down its adoption.

Epic Games: Right, so with our initial of Fortnite Battle Royale on mobile devices, we need to control the rate at which players enter the game so our servers don't break.

Epic Games: Fortnite Battle Royale is inherently a social game and it's so much fun with friends.

Since sound is a big part of success in Fortnite, whether it's hearing footsteps around you or gunfire in the distance, the mobile version has a pretty ingenious solution for it. While the resolution has clearly been reduced, as has the framerate when played on an iPhone SE with iOS 11 installed, the draw distance reduction doesn't seem to be as high as is seen on the mobile port of PUBG.

The total download amount is about 2 GB, which is fair for a game like fortnite that covers so many graphics and details. We think that there's no reason mobile games can't be the same experiences you have on consoles or PC, so with Fortnite Battle Royale, what you get on other platforms is exactly what you get on the go. The same game on all platforms, with console-quality graphics and action, where players can play when they want and where they want. We believe this is the future of games.

Important to note that the Fortnite mobile version out now for iOS devices aren't anywhere near final (nor is it released officially), and there's an Android version set to hit soon, so it will inflate the playercount even more given there's cross-platform play between nearly all versions. Items are automatically added to your inventory when you run over them, including guns.
