Fortnite sneaks into iOS with Xbox Cloud Gaming

Fortnite from Epic Games can now be accessed on iPhones using the Xbox Cloud Gaming service.


A new, touch-friendly version of the battle royale game Fortnite is now available on iOS, introduced by the partnership between Microsoft and Epic Games.

The native Fortnite app was kicked out of the App Store in 2020 due to concerns about in-platform payment options. Until now, there was no mobile version, but Xbox has decided to end the stalemate.

Fortnite is now free to play in browsers, meaning an Android phone, iPhone and iPad can access the title without the need for a subscription. Microsoft recently unveiled the promotion on YouTube through its official Xbox channel. Users can connect a Backbone One or DualSense controller if desired.

Those interested can sign in with their Xbox account to play Fortnite on iOS. Previously, it was possible to play the game using the GeForce Now service, but this requires a game controller.
