Fortnite Mobile Already Has a Major Clone Competitor

Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices.

Though it appears that Sony is just forcing its aggressive business practices for the PS4 in its decision to prohibit Xbox One and PS4 cross-play since Microsoft, the owner of the Xbox One, actually is in favor of the aspect.

As the game is pretty established, or you could even say widely popular, it looks like Epic is trying hard to reassure mobile users that they can enjoy the same experience while on their most portable devices.

The Fortnite Battle Royale invite event will begin next week.

Graphics quality is, as you'd expect, lower than what many Battle Royale players are likely accustomed to, as it runs at a noticeably low resolution in some sections (such as when a player parachutes down into the Dusty Depot area).

Everything you need to know about the launch of Fortnite Battle Royale on Mobile.

Usually, whenever a major console character or game heads to mobile, as with Mario or Sonic, there's disappointment, both in player satisfaction and revenue terms.

Purportedly, Epic and Sony did not reply to requests for comment. And, while free to play, companies will also be interested in the revenue figures from all the extra Battle Pass content that players can buy. This means that players on the PC, the Xbox On, and mobile devices will be able to play against each other, which in itself is already a huge development.

Then in 2017, Microsoft announced that cross-platform support for Minecraft would be available for the Xbox One, Switch, and mobile, but PS4 was absent from the list. "And, as always, cross-play is opt in".

For those Fortnite players who do want to play on other platforms, voice chat will be very important.

Luckily, rather than instantly pitting mobile players against PC players and the ensuing bloodbath that will follow, Epic have come up with a rather interesting solution.

Fans will have to wait a little while for this feature to roll out, along with a few others.

For the time being, however, you will not be able to use Bluetooth controller devices on mobile.
