Because today is the day of big announcements, we've also got word that Epic Games are bringing Fortnite Battle Royal to iOS and Android.

Even more impressive, the mobile versions of Fortnite: Battle Royale will feature cross-play and the ability to maintain progression between platforms, including PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac. Thanks to their partnership with PS, things will become hot, and Fortnite will offer the same content as on the PC, including the exact updates, content and whole same gameplay. Ultimately, we're all just going to have to wait and see, as Fortnite doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, and Epic Games seems determined to come after all your free time. The game will continue its worldwide dominance because it will now be released for mobile devices later this year too as announced by Epic Games. The Battle Royale mode has taken the world by storm.

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" launched in March 2017 as an iteration on the last-person-standing battle royale concept that had gained momentum, in part through Greene's own work as a fan and then as a consultant on 2015's "H1Z1". If you are one of the lucky ones to try it out early, you will be able to share the love with friend codes to give out. Those users will need to upgrade to iOS 11. Invites will not be sent out to everyone initially, though Epic said it will be adding more players "regularly over the coming months". It's an interesting move from a console maker that continues to stand in the way of cross-console play between the PS4 and Xbox One or Switch.

"We believe this is the future of games", Epic writes. That's to say a player using an Xbox will be able to play with another player using a mobile device, like a smartphone or tablet. Can't get home in time for the first match?

Epic Community Manager Nick Chester clarified in a tweet that players will be able to opt into cross-platform matchmaking queues or stick with players on the same platform. However, PUBG's mobile has grown immensely popular in China.
