Fortnite Battle Royale: Your Killer May Be On An iPhone!


Merely three days after its initial release on iOS, the game is already topping the charts in many regions, including but not limited to the U.S., most of Western Europe, Australia, and is close to cracking the code behind the #1 spot of Japan and many other regional app stores.

Without a doubt, one of the major draws to Epic Games' popular multiplayer sandbox survival title Fortnite Battle Royale comes from the studio's continual update of the game with new items, gameplay aspects, and modes. In the first 72 hours, the game earned $1 million (close to Rs. 6.5 crore). "Purely based on cosmetic IAP, it has managed to gross about one third as much as both Pokémon GO ($4.9 million) and Clash Royale ($4.6 million) made in their first four days of availability on iOS", writes SensorTower's Head of Mobile Insights Randy Nelson.

Not bad, especially when you consider it has been released as "invite only" and not released to the wider public. Since the beginning of the match, the circle is already formed, and the shrinking countdown begins as soon as you hit the ground.


It is more likely to become permanent game mode, since it encourages and correlates good with any player's real-life needs, so it will deliver them quickly and still enjoy playing Fortnite. If you don't receive an invite right away, don't worry, Epic will get round to you eventually over the coming months. But is there Fortnite mobile controller support? It's worth remembering that Fortnite Mobile is now only available on iOS, with Android support set to follow some time in the future.

Another idea was also suggested by Epic Games that should interest players even after the latest limited time game mode is gone.
