Fortnite Mobile won’t have Bluetooth controller support at launch
Fortnite Mobile will have two major problems when it launches on iOS devices.
With the first wave of Fortnite Mobile invitations about to be sent out to fans, developer Epic Games has cleared up one or two burning issues.
In a FAQ on the Fortnite Mobile website, Epic told fans that the Battle Royale port won’t support Bluetooth controllers at launch.
Instead, Bluetooth controller support will be added as part of a later update.
And the bad news doesn’t end there, as Epic reveals that Fortnite Mobile won’t initially support voice chat.
The Fortnite Mobile developer is also keeping tight-lipped about the release date.
Epic is expected to send out Fortnite Mobile invites later this week, after opening the sign up page on Monday (March 12).
iOS users can sign up for the Fortnite Mobile gameplay test by following THIS LINK.
And while the release date remains a mystery Epic’s track record of delivering speedy updates means that fans shouldn’t have to wait too long to play Fortnite Battle Royale on iOS.
In the meantime have been warned against clicking false download links.
“We have not sent out any mobile invites yet. Please be aware of false mobile download links. Our official URLs are Fortnite.com and Epicgames.com.”
Fortnite Mobile is described as the full Battle Royale experience with no compromises.
It features the same map, the same content, the same unlockables, gameplay and even the same weekly updates.
The only restrictions are that users must have an internet connection, and iOS 11 on iPhone 6S/SE. iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, iPod Pro and later.
“We will send you an email invitation with a link to download the game from the App Store, as soon as you can play,” Epic continues.
Anybody yet to receive a download code will be placed on the waiting list.
