The wait is finally over. Fortnite Mobile will be back on the App Store and Google Play this week! But when did it go away? What are the requirements for playing on mobile now? How does Battle Royale work on mobile? All questions that we’ve been dying to know the answer to. In this article, I’ll go into detail about when Fortnite Mobile is coming back, what you need to do to play, and how Battle Royale works on mobile.
When is Fortnite Mobile coming back?
Fortnite Mobile is returning this Thursday, December 6th. The release will bring with it the Battle Royale mode and other updates that were originally planned to go live on November 27th.
According to their website, “Players will be able to play Mobile Fortnite for free as long as they have an internet connection.” So, you don’t need a data plan or anything like that. The app works just like the PC version where you have to pay to unlock additional features. Plus, there are no in-app purchases.
The Battle Royale mode is available for free but if you want access to all of the other modes, you must purchase the Starter Pack which costs $6.99.
What are the requirements to play on mobile?
If you want to play Fortnite on mobile, you’ll first need a compatible device. This includes Android and iOS devices that are running at least 4.0 operating system version.
If you’ve already got one of the listed devices, then all that’s left is logging in with your Epic Games account and downloading the game from the app store (download link will be available when the game drops).
If you don’t have a compatible device but still want to play Fortnite on mobile, then it’s time to buy a new phone! If you’re not looking for a new device right now, then just wait till September 12th when Fortnite Mobile comes back as an update to your current device.
Your current device must also include at least 2 GB of RAM in order for this update to take place.
How does Battle Royale work on mobile?
The Battle Royale mode of Fortnite is the best part of the game. It has been a favorite for both pro and casual players. An interesting twist to the regular map, it features up to 100 players fighting until only one is left standing.
Every player starts on a staggered island in a different location, with no life-saving resources present. The only way to survive is by scavenging weapons, ammo, building materials, and other items that are scattered throughout the map. There are no vehicles present in this version of the game either. This creates a more realistic battle experience where you must use your wits and skills to strategize your way back into the game.
One major change that you’ll notice when playing Battle Royale on mobile is that you will start out with less health than you would in regular Fortnite matches. You also have reduced mobility due to the smaller screen size, which makes it difficult to get around quickly and make quick turns in combat.
Now that Mobile Fortnite has been released for Android, iOS, and PC, there has been a lot of speculation about when it will come back.
But there is no concrete answer as of now — it could be soon or it could take a while. It all depends on how well the game performs on mobile. So be patient while Fortnite on mobile awaits its return.
