Fortnite is finally coming back to Apple iOS devices including iPhone and iPad.
Apple removed Fortnite from iOS devices after Epic Games attempted to bypass the App Store for in-game purchases.
Frustrated at having to give Apple a 30% cut of any in-game transactions, Epic filed a lawsuit accusing Apple of monopolistic business practices.
However, despite subsequent legal proceedings largely favouring Apple, Fortnite appears to be returning to iOS devices.
According to a recent announcement made by NVIDIA, Fortnite is coming back to iOS via the GeForce NOW streaming app.
NVIDIA explains more: “Starting next week, Fortnite on GeForce NOW will launch in a limited-time closed beta for mobile, all streamed through the Safari web browser on iOS and the GeForce NOW Android app.
“The beta is open for registration for all GeForce NOW members, and will help test our server capacity, graphics delivery and new touch controls performance.
“Members will be admitted to the beta in batches over the coming weeks.”
As pointed out by NVIDIA, Fortnite iOS gameplay will feature newly updated touch controls.
“Alongside the amazing team at Epic Games, we’ve been working to enable a touch-friendly version of Fortnite for mobile delivered through the cloud.
“While PC games in the GeForce NOW library are best experienced on mobile with a gamepad, the introduction of touch controls built by the GeForce NOW team offers more options for players, starting with Fortnite.”
If you want to enjoy Fortnite on iOS devices, then you can sign up to become a GeForce NOW member on the NVIDIA website.
