 ANDROID NEWS - UPCOMING

Fortnite's mobile beta sign up is live, but you might want to wait a couple of hours

The battle bus is running late

Summary News Review Screens Videos Articles Tips  
Product: Fortnite Battle Royale | Publisher: Epic Games
For: Android   Also on: iPhone, iPad
 
We've been waiting for it and Fortnite's beta sign up is officially here. Unfortunately if you're joining the party a little late, you may have to wait a couple of hours for the website to come back up. 
Fortnite's mobile sign-up went live a couple of hours ago, and after a shaky couple of minutes I managed to enter my details and get that exciting 'you're in' email. Not too long afterwards the website crashed and still remains offline (until about 1:30 PM EST), so that's fun. 

Since I was on holiday last week I learnt that Fortnite was headed to mobile later than usual. Initially I was overjoyed - I've been totally addicted to it since I loaded it up on my PC a few weeks back, but after reading about its cross-play capabilities I admit I was a little skeptical. 

Obviously, my immediate thought went to the glaring disadvantage touchscreen players have against controller and keyboard players, but apparently cross-play is primarily for matching up with friends. I don't think I could get any worse, so my friends probably wouldn't even notice that I was on mobile.  

So, don't panic if Epic Games' website is pulling up blank for you at the moment. As they stated in their confirmation email, even if you've signed up to the beta and don't get a code straight away, Epic will be rolling them out over the next few months too. 

In order to participate (for iOS at least) you need "iOS 11 on iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 devices or later."

NetEase hopped aboard the battle royale train yet again by launching their beta for the - ahem - subtly named FortCraft, which you can sign up to now if you're itching to get your PvP on.
