That's completely wrong. You are explicitly not 'cross playing' console and mobile phone unless you opt-in to it (which isn't an option yet). If you play on iOS you are playing other iOS players only which makes it a much fairer game.

I will say though that unless your device has an A10 or A11 SoC don't bother as it looks pretty terrible on an iPad Air 2, mini 4 or 6s and puts you at a massive disadvantage (it runs at quarter device resolution and at a distance you'll be wondering if it's a tree or a player and then, boom, you're dead).

Also to anyone sitting on the fence, this is totally *not* play-to-win, the in-game currency is spent on cosmetic items only and give no competitive edge (other than maybe a better skin for blending into the map) - which, in my eyes, makes this a fantastic game unlike many other online phone-based games. Epic have done an incredible job here.

The console is a lot of fun. Just bought and shared that £3.99 pack.

Not sure about iOS but gonna give it a try.
BTW, this is genius from epic. They'll make so much money of this game from non console players.
I do find it a lot more difficult to play this on an iPad than a console. Great game though.

Only if you have latest high-end phone (iP8/8 Plus/X). Otherwise is looks and runs like crap.

It looks and runs the same on the iPhone 7-series as well (just as well as the X and 8). On anything less it's pretty bad, I found it will lag at the critical moments like landing on something (as it loads textures and stutters) or when someone is shooting at you - it's also so low-res it's nearly impossible to see bullet traces - that's why I don't bother playing it on the Air 2 now.
I get put off by games like this on mobile. There are too many buttons to press all at once for it to be played as it should.

You should try it out - especially as it's free and there are no micro-transactions to make you more competitive. As someone who only got into it since it's iOS release, it's good fun and the controls are excellent (well, as good as they can be for a touchscreen device).

Ill give it a go at some point. The only console game that I can play on mobile is Sonic (and games like that lol).

Hand / eye coordination has gone to pot on everything
I’ll give it a try on my IPhone SE but i am expecting it to be nigh on impossible to play on such a little screen, it will be like aiming at an ant!

Tell me about it. They've built a whole town from wood on Fortnite before I even think about shooting
Slow to download on mobile, and I am on 4G, so I’m worried how big the file is it says 124Mb on App Store but then once that download completes and you start the game it goes off downloading again! Hope I don’t use up all my mobile data.

Waiting for this to hit Android, currently playing PUBG on my OnePlus 5T and I'm honestly impressed with the fluid controls and great graphics, I would say the graphics are equivalent to a Wii U, not the best obviously but for it to be mushed in a phone with a map that size, I'm really really impressed.
Can't wait for this and Runescape mobile to come out, then my travels will be so much more entertaining!

I'm hooked on this it's amazing. The vehicles are superb and when team mates drive to find you and pick you up and battle as a group it really is impressive for a mobile game. I play on my ipad and on an android emulator on the pc which is a bit naughty as allows keyboard and mouse controls.

WTF no 6 plus.. from what i have seen i would say Rules of survival is better made runs perfect and more graphical on a 6 plus yet they wont allow fortnite on it

Umm they hardly sneak up on you like most players in Fortnite...You don’t need IAPs to win, just to look cool.

It runs like a potato on the 6s and it is graphically quite intense as well as a big map with lots of textures. But the main reason it’s not on the 6 Plus is because Apple thought 1GB was fair for a 2014 flagship phone, you can blame them for that one!

This is amazing on iPad. Amazing. And it's free. So give it a go and see your life transformed.
Downloaded on my IPhone SE (16gb!) as I had just about cleared 1gb on memory. Thought it had downloaded however when I try to open it states I need another 3gb!! Looks like I’m giving it a miss!!

Consider yourself lucky, it needs 20GB to install on the PC (9.8GB after its finished). I don't understand why it needs 10x more on the PC but nevermind...
