Fortnite Battle Royale Mobile Edition will be debuting on iOS and Android in the coming months, and according to the details provided, it doesn't look to be neutered in any ways. Sony has given Epic the green light to allow players on their console to team up with a friend who may only have the game on a mobile device. Epic will be regularly inviting players to the game over the coming months.

What's a little surprising is that while it will support cross-play and cross-progression for most systems, it will not do so for Xbox One.

To participate, iOS 11 on at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad 2017 devices is required.

Fortnite Battle Royale is headed to mobile devices, starting with iOS within the next few days. On mobile, there are already several battle royale games, and the official PUBG mobile games are sure to come west at some point.

Epic Games has also indicated that this will involve crossplay, however, it appears to be limited to PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android. There's now no word as to whether or not Xbox One will eventually be included in the mix.

"Fortnite: Battle Royale" is a free-to-play experience that is part of Epic's survival game "Fortnite". The developer assured players that both the graphics and gameplay experienced by PC and console players will be the same on mobile devices.

As for the cross-play support, Epic said you'll be able to join a squad and play together with friends on different platforms.
