Fortnite is now only available on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac - although it launches on iPhone this week. Once you're done, all you have to do is wait for the invite to arrive. It's best to upgrade now if you have been waiting for the game to arrive. Bluetooth controllers will not work with the game, but controller support will be coming eventually. Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates. For example, my kids who signed up right after the signup page went live (trust me they were quick), have not received an invite yet, while their friends have. Epic Games said it's still slowly building the teams at this time, with more information expected to come out closer to the event this Summer.
Factors that contribute to the order in which players receive invites include sign up order, proximity to a data center, and device model, among other factors.
THE latest Fortnite update is out, and it adds a load of new features - including the mysterious loot llamas. Are you a Fortnite player?
Going into slightly more details, this new update improves server performance and reduced bandwidth usage when players are jumping and optimizes shield effects on players to improve overall frame rate.
