Where To Sign Up And What You Need To Know — Fortnite Mobile

Xbox One news this week includes Fortnite Crossplay and PUBG

Yes, it won't be Fortnite remade as a tower defence, hidden object, match-3, or comic book adventure - but the same 100-player action game you might play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, or Mac.

With Battle Royale offered as a free to play game, and with no ads in sight, many players have been left wondering how Epic Games makes money from it.

This isn't the first time we see blocked cross-play functionalities between PS4 and Xbox One.

As Kotaku points out, CD Projekt Red is only waiting on Microsoft and Sony to do the deal and it can setup cross-platform play between Gwent players on Xbox and PS4 too. Building off of the success that the game has experienced on PC and consoles, the game's mobile spin-off could potentially be a huge success as well, making a lot of money for the companies behind it. Apparently, Sony, the owner of all things PS4, is quite reluctant to allow cross-play with Xbox One due to some questionable "security reasons" they claim to be a hindrance for the cross-play between the two console platforms.

"Epic Games and Microsoft, developer and manufacturer of Fortnite and the Xbox video-games console respectively, have both shown a willingness to allow Xbox and Playstation owners to play Fortnite against each other online". Eagle eyed readers might have noticed the omission of the Xbox One from that list but that situation is apparently down to Sony's reticence.

Q: When can I play Fortnite Battle Royale on my iOS device? Sony gets grumpy about letting ecosystems mix, so they're now blocking Xbox One users from joining the fun, but they can still play on their own with fellow Xbox gamers. The company then suggested that the gaming outlet reach out to Sony or Epic for more. It will be interesting to see if/how exploits like rocket riding will work on mobile devices, if at all.

One important thing to note is that, despite the all-encompassing cross-play, an Xbox One vs PS4 cross-play is not happening. Further, they assured that everything would be the same from gameplay to content and weekly updates. Epic Games opened its sign-up page for mobile devices on Monday, and the site went down nearly immediately because of all the extra traffic.
