If you’re looking for a fun gaming fix on the go, why not Fortnite on mobile?
Bringing Fortnite to mobile was a no brainer. The runaway success of Fortnite Battle Royale, which sees 100 players duke it out on an island map to be the last fighter standing, has already seen it come to Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
Thankfully, Fortnite’s cartoonish art style also lets it downscale easily to smartphone screens, which have never been more capable of competitive online gaming – with an aim-assist option for Fortnite mobile players mourning the loss of detail at that smaller size.

So Fortnite mobile is very much the real thing, and if you’re reading this it’s because you want to jump right in to the Epic Games mobile game. To that end, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide for starting your Fortnite mobile game adventure.
What is Fortnite on mobile?
Fortnite mobile is the full game you know and love from PCs and consoles, with the same weapons, the same map and an identical update schedule.
The controls are adapted for touchscreen, with some actions automated to make it less fiddly, including picking up items and opening doors.
Elements of Fortnite’s UI are different on Android too, with extra building buttons popping up, and there are both on-screen footstep and gunshot indicators to tell you the direction of any nearby sounds. Other than that, Fortnite on mobile is the same game.
