Now you can play on the go.
Don’t be surprised if, in the coming weeks, Fortnite gets a whole lot more popular.
As Epic notes, the game works with iPhone SE, 6S, 7, 8, and X, along with the iPad Mini 4, Air 2, 2017, and Pro. Unfortunately for those who have an iPhone 5S, 6, and 6 Plus, or those who own an iPad Air, Mini 2, Mini 3, or an iPod Touch, none of those devices support the game.
Even though people with older devices can’t play, it will be interesting to see the effect on the game’s popularity now that more casual gamers can just download it onto their phones and tablets. The game is already a massive success.
Ninja, one of the most popular gamers on Twitch, broke a record of 630,000 concurrent livestreaming views last month when he teamed up with Drake to play, nearly doubling the previous record. Less than two weeks later, a number of popular content creators played together and managed to record 1.1 million concurrent views (it eventually earned more than 42 million unique views across the platforms of the 100 streamers who played in the game).
Even YouTube stars like Logan Paul and Jake Paul have annoyed gamers by jumping on the Fortnite bandwagon.
How big is @FortniteGame on YouTube? Fortnite holds the record for the most videos related to a video game uploaded in a single month EVER. Yesterday, the Battle Royale tournament had over 42M live views, and set a record for biggest single live gaming stream @ 1.1M concurrent.

For those interested in downloading the game, it’s available in the App Store now.
