The shooter success "Fortnite Battle Royale" can now also be played on the smartphone. TECHBOOK got hold of one of the coveted registration codes and tested the game. In the video there are the first pictures and impressions.

Fortnite Mobile is the latest trick from developer studio Epic Games. While PC and console players have been shooting in battle royale mode for a long time, iPhone and iPad owners are now also allowed to join. Players can sign up for an invite on the Fortnite website. Epic has already sent out the first invitations and TECHBOOK has already been able to download the game. You can see and hear our first impressions in the video.

Cross play with the PC possible

Epic Games makes the game available as a so-called cross play. That means: No matter which platform - PC, Mac, console or smartphone - you use, players can compete against each other, at least in theory. Owners of Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4 can play with PC, Mac and smartphone gamblers - but they cannot play against each other. Sony is still reluctant to do this.

For “Fortnite Mobile”, smartphone players need at least an iPhone 6s or SE or an iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 or iPad 2017 with iOS 11 installed in addition to an active Internet connection. An Android version is also in progress, an appointment does not exist here yet.

The hype about Fortnite

Fortnite is currently one of the most popular multiplayer shooters with over 20 million users. The game relies on the battle royale principle. 100 players compete against each other in standard mode. Everyone fights for himself on the huge map, if a gamer is killed, the round is over for him. This goes on until there is only one player left - the winner. The game principle was originally made popular by "Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds". In contrast, Fortnite can be played for free and, in addition to PC and Xbox One, also playable on Playstation 4 and soon on the smartphone.
