Here’s a complete guide on how to get a Fortnite Battle Royale invite for iOS and start playing the game with all of your friends.
Fortnite Battle Royale is a hugely popular game that sees up to 100 players dropped on to a fictional island.
Gamers are then forced to fight for survival in a last-person-standing death-match.
It’s already available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows and Mac computers, and last week Epic Games announced it would be coming to mobile too.
Now the game is available to iOS users – which means anyone who owns an iPhone will be able to play it.
To get the game, you’ll need to sign up for the iPhone version here:
You’ll be asked to enter some details, including your email address and the device model you’re using.
Once you’re signed up, you’ll receive an email confirming your request for an iOS download.
At some point afterwards, you should get an email with an official invite to play Fortnite on iPhone.
It’ll let you download the game from the official App Store.
However, not all players will get a link immediately – and you could be left waiting for weeks, or even months.
“If you don’t receive an invite right away, don’t worry,” explains Epic Games.
“We’ll be adding more players regularly over the coming months.
“Players who receive invites from Epic will also get friend invite codes to share with others.”
However, Fortnite has confirmed that players who get invitations won’t immediately get shareable codes – you’ll have to wait a while, and probably prove you’re an active player.
The good news about Fortnite on mobile is that it supports cross-play, so you can play with your console or PC friends using your phone.
How do you get picked to play Fortnite on iPhone?
There are several things that will count in your favour.
Signing up as soon as possible is the best method – so make sure to register your interest immediately if you’re keen.
It also depends which phone you have. Epic Games will want to test its new game version on a range of devices, so you won’t necessarily miss out if you’ve got an older phone model.
Epic Games also wants to make sure it’s getting stable test data, so you’ll be prioritised if you live closer to a data centre – but there’s no easy way of knowing if that’s the case.
