While it’s true that Steam’s third highest earning game of all time, PUBG, often steals the spotlight, you can’t ignore that other popular, and arguably better, last-man-standing title, Fortnite Battle Royale. Now, Developer Epic Games has announced that the free-to-play game is coming to iOS and Android devices. Fortnite Battle Royale will arrive on both phones and tablets. iOS users can sign up for an early version of the game from next week (March 12), while Android support is arriving sometime in the next few months. “On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac,” states the devs. “Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.” Epic says that thanks to its partnership with Sony, Fortnite Battle Royale will support cross-play and cross-progression, so PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android (eventually) users will be able to play together.

For years now, gamers have gotten used to popular, big-budget console and PC games coming to mobile phones in the form of cheesy, heavily scaled-down "companion experiences" like match-three games or mindless screen-tappers. So it was a bit surprising late last night when Epic Games announced that the upcoming mobile and tablet versions of Fortnite: Battle Royale would be "the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates." used to require some workarounds to play with the PS4). It's an interesting move from a console maker that continues to stand in the way of cross-console play between the PS4 and Xbox One or Switch. Fortnite briefly and accidentally proved such cross-console play was possible back in September, and Epic Games later said players "deserve" such features. Epic Community Manager Nick Chester clarified in a tweet that players will be able to opt into cross-platform matchmaking queues or … [Read more...] about Fortnite Battle Royale will have the “same gameplay” on mobile devices
Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Just announced by Epic Games, Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile! If you’re unaware, Battle Royale is a game mode for the Fortnite title that has solo players going up against 99 other players on an island littered with guns, traps, and materials to build forts. While you’re busy trying to eliminate other players, you must also watch out for a deadly storm that makes its way onto the island. If you’re trapped in the storm for too long, you’re eliminated.

Epic continues to roll out updates for its last-player-standing shooter Fortnite: Battle Royale, and the latest patch has it running at 60 frames per second and a 4K resolution at the same time on the Xbox One X. This is a big update as the game ran at a dynamic resolution that occasionally hit 4K and 30 FPS up until recently. I hopped onto the Xbox One X version last night to see how it looks. Fortnite has had a polished sheen relative to competitors like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which can look grimy with its attempts at photorealism. Fortnite also ran at a solid 30 frames per second — but that means that the upgrades to 4K and even to 60 frames per second aren’t earth-shattering. These are nice improvements to have, but if you were already playing on an Xbox One X, you may not notice much of a difference during gameplay. But that doesn’t mean the upgrades are disappointing by any means. After all, Fortnite: Battle Royale is one of the most popular games … [Read more...] about Watch Fortnite: Battle Royale running in 4K and 60 FPS on Xbox One X
