After a whole lot of doubt, speculation, and even a very probable release on iOS through Nvidia GeForce, the CEO and founder of Epic Games himself has officially confirmed that Fortnite is coming to iOS and Android devices for completely free via Xbox Cloud Gaming.
Epic Games partners with Xbox for its Cloud gaming catalog
Now Android really isn’t of much importance here as the game was available through the official Epic Games mobile store for the platform. However, ever since Epic Games’ legal battle with Apple, Fortnite never managed to step into the iOS territory, severely handicapping its growth on Mobile.
It seems like the Nvidia GeForce partnership didn’t exactly work out but this does look like just the start of Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Project which will bring free-to-play games to players on their web browsers. No downloads and very basic hardware requirements are what this is all about and if you’re located in any of the 26 regions which have the Xbox Cloud Gaming Beta you can head over to the official website through any web browser, sign in for free with your Microsoft account and that is all that has to be done to get into the Battle Bus.
It’s really pretty cool how this is a full-fledged version of the game on your web browser and it works for Android, iOS, and PCs as long as players have a stable internet connection. This even fixes the problem of the game not running too well on Android as players aren’t running the game natively.
