The wait is over and Epic Games has now made a decision to stop making the mobile version of its hugely popular 100-player PVP game Fortnite Battle Royale feel like an exclusive club with invitation-only membership. Both games are in the top 10 downloaded games in Google Play and/or the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPad.
Courtesy their excellent business model, it is safe to say that Fortnite has an edge over their rivals and the actual battle royale pioneer, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.
Unfortunately, the game is now only available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and will likely never come to the PS3.
The developers of the Epic Games are working hard to fix all the bugs and simple errors from the game as numerous players of this game have been posting about the bugs and errors available in the game. For many, this is a very big deal considering Fortnite is only a year old game whereas GTA 5 is one of the best selling games of all times. (Presumably the new 2018 iPad too.) But if you have an iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3 or an iPod Touch, you're out of luck. The only exception to this is PS4 and Xbox One.
Don't be surprised if, in the coming weeks, Fortnite gets a whole lot more popular. This is also because the game is much more fun to play and is backed by regular updates from the Epic team.
A serious games researcher believes Fortnite possesses "positive characteristics of play" and is not addictive.
Although for now the Vending Machine is listed as coming soon, it is not clear how everything will work. Not to mention, some players might have to decide whether to hold onto materials for building or trading them in and hopefully getting something good.
