Epic Games’ battle royale spin-off to Fortnite is heading to a major platform.
Fortnite’s Battle Royale spin-off receives a major development update as Epic Games announce that the game is heading for the Android and the iOS. After reaching record highs in playerbase, concurrent users and even in Twitch viewership, Fortnite’s Battle Royale spinoff will try to tap in to the huge market of mobile gaming where they will be up against other now popular Battle Royale titles such as Rules of Survival.
Originally a coop survival sandbox title initially made available via early access back in July 25, 2017, Fortnite’s Battle Royale spinoff was made available as a free to play standalone during September of last year during the height of PUBG’s popularity. Months after, Fortnite Battle Royale was able to entice 40 million players to try the game, with a record high 3.4 Million users playing at the same time which initially imploded the game’s servers. Aside from the playerbase, the game was also able to spark the interest of Twitch viewers as it continues to stay on top of the most viewed games lists, surpassing not only PUBG but also League of Legends.
Fortnite Battle Royale’s mobile spin-off will open its sign-ups this coming Monday, starting with the iOS platform before heading to Android sometime later this year.
