Over the last few months, battle royale video games have become tremendously popular. As you know, we're talking about those online multiplayer games in which everyone fights against everyone (although we can also sometimes create alliances) and the last player standing, wins. PUBG is definitely amongst the most popular titles and the latter comes along with versions for Android that are mainly aimed at the Asian market, although you can download their APKs from Malavida. But we can't forget about Fortnite.
One of the best battle royale games has finally on iPhone
Epic games, in charge of the development of this second game, have been working on a mobile version for iOS devices, in other words, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. That means that we're going to be able to play this massively multiplayer action game wherever we go provided that we've got an Internet connection and enough battery.
As you probably already know, in this game you'll have to do whatever it takes to not be wiped out by your rivals. For such purpose, you can make use of different weapons and also get hold of other items and materials that will allow you to craft your own shelter, just like in Minecraft.
We don't expect the game to be too different to its versions for Windows, Mac or video console that we've already been able to play. In other words, the same tools, the same characters, the same techniques, and the same strategies... at the end of the day, it's all about making the game fully cross-playable and that gamers on their mobile devices are in the same conditions than those that play on other platforms.
Take your Fornite matches with you wherever you go.
We recommend you to pay plenty of attention to Malavida, Twitter, and Facebook to find out when there's any update or news about the mobile version. With regard to Fortnite for Android, its developers have already said that it will be out in the future but we'll still have to wait for a few months to be able to download the APK to our smartphone or tablet. In the meantime, we'll have to cope with this version for iOS.
