"Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac", the company noted in its press statement. This week also sees the introduction of new game type 5 teams of 20 and news of Fortnite on mobile.

The hottest battle royale game on the planet is officially heading to smartphones and tablets - and you'll be able to play with other players across platforms. 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. An Android beta and game support will be available a few months later.

Nintendo wasn't the only ones with surprising news, Epic Games confirmed that Fortnite is coming to iOS and Android devices. Users who receive invites will also get friend invite codes to share.

Fortnite Battle Royale Mobile will first land on iOS, with Android coming in the next few 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.

Earlier this week a mum in the United Kingdom criticised the influence Fortnite: Battle Royale had had on her 10-year-old son, saying that her his obsession with the game had led to changes in his behaviour. If you register on the the game's official website, that'll get you on the email list. Android support is set for sometime in the future. Intriguingly this doesn't include the Xbox One family of consoles. "Console quality graphics and action", said Epic Games. Going by their performance so far, Fortnite seems to be a little ahead. The best part? Cross-platform play and cross-progression support with PlayStation 4. You'd have to imagine that console/PC players would have an advantage.

You need to land on seven different bullseyes in total, and since you need to do so from the Battle Bus, requires you play at least seven matches to complete the challenge.

Cross-play and cross-progression for Fortnite will be coming to several platforms soon.
