Fortnite is Back on iPhone Thanks to GeForce Now. Epic Games has long bemoaned the state of affairs on app stores, especially on the Apple Store. When it was removed from iOS, it became a major problem for Epic Games and Fortnite Players. The ban gave rise to a lot of lawsuits not just in the United States, but in countries all over the world, that challenged the legality of Apple’s App Store practices.
Fortnite is Back on iPhone Thanks to GeForce Now
The battle is yet to come to an end despite the existing judgments, and Fortnite remains officially banned from iOS. In the midst of all this, NVIDIA’s GeForce Now the streaming platform has a device as a means to bring back the battle royale game to iPhone and iPad in a way that seems indirect.
Fortnite on Mobile Redux
This announcement is a big announcement from NVIDIA, an announcement that Apple might not take so lightly. The makers of the iPhone are already keeping a close watch on streaming services trying to establish roots on its mobile platform, particularly in how they could circumvent blocks it has put in place. Making Fortnite available on Apple devices via game streaming platform could be one such case that it does not allow to go without a response.
NVIDIA also is doing something rather new with this interesting new Fortnite Announcement. The Popular battle Royale game is already made available on its GeForce Now service and can already be played on Android. The difference here is that the pre-existing version of Fortnite is the PC version of the game, While the new version, which is under a limited tome closed beta testing, is a mobile variant that has been optimized to run on touch controls.
NVIDIA GeForce Touch and Go
NVIDIA stated that Fortnite is just launching Salvo, and it is working with other publishers to bring in more games that are touch-enabled to the service. This service actually might help GeForce Now grow since it would actually mean that there are more playable games on mobile without having to connect a gamepad.
When compared to other game streaming services, NVIDIA GeForce Now probably has the most coverage as far as compatible devices and platforms are connected, including on the Xbox, thanks to Microsoft Edge support, and on LG webOS smart TVs.
The closed beta made for this touch-friendly on Android and iOS has started, but you would be required to join what might already be a long waitlist to get in. You get to register your Android and iOS betas. But NVIDIA warns that you making the switch to the touch-optimized version of Fortnite on Android means losing Access to the PC version with Keyboard and Mouse support.
A date for the end of the closed beta is yet to be announced, so all interested mobile gamers should try out their luck as quickly as they can.
