As a part of Microsoft mission to ensure joy and community of gaming to players wherever they are, you can now play Fortnite on any iOS, iPadOS, Android phone or tablet, or Windows PC that is in possession of a web browser. This is without any need to download or even install anything, as log as you are in possession of a Microsoft account, which is really great for a low bar entry.

Xbox Cloud Gaming Service

While this sounds quite well and good, the Xbox Cloud gaming service is basically still in beta, so it is only available in about 26 countries currently. You would also need to be in possession of a fast internet connection if you want to play the game without any hitches or too much compression in Fortnite’s graphics.

Thankfully for all mobile gaming fans out there, there are those too keen on Fortnite, in the Xbox Wire Post, announcing Fortnite’s glorious return to iOS devices, Microsoft noted that they are working to bring more free-to-play games to the Xbox Cloud gaming service in the future, however, at the moment there is no indication concerning which other free-to-play games would be available at this time.

Finally, Freedom

Thanks to the legal battle between Epic Games and Apple, Fortnite has not officially been made available on iOS devices ever since the app was pulled from the app store back in August 2020. However, there has been a number of workarounds that enables iOS gamers to play Fortnite on their devices again.

Recently, Nvidia’s GeForce Now allows iOS gamers to easily Play Fortnite via the Safari Browser, Similar to what would now allow their users do. However, players on free GeForce Now Accounts were limited to playing only one hour at a time on a fairly Basic Virtual Machine.

Playing Fortnite For Free

While this has enabled iOS and iPadOS users to play Fortnite in moderation, it’s is far from an ideal solution, as the restrictions in playtime, and not to mention the service’s waitlist, push players towards the paid Geforce Now tiers, Something that Microsoft mercifully is not doing at the moment as Fortnite is available to play without an Xbox Game Pass ultimate Subscription.
