It seems that Epic’s decision to bring Fortnite Battle Royale onto mobile devices was a great one as it seems to be extremely well-received. According to reports, it looks like the game has managed to top the charts in thirteen countries since its launch, and this is not even taking into consideration several factors.

One factor is that for now, the game is still invite-only which means that there are probably a ton more gamers out there who are waiting to get in. This is to prevent the servers from overloading which will probably not do anyone any favors. Second factor is the fact that this is iOS-only at the moment, which means that we can probably anticipate the same amount of excitement once the Android version of the game is ready.

Plus the fact that Fortnite Battle Royale supports cross-platform play against players on the PC and console (no cross-platform between Xbox One and PS4 unfortunately) means that mobile players will have a ton of opponents to face off against right out the door. So far reviews of the mobile version of Fortnite has been pretty good and the recent stream of the game by musician Drake has only served to help bring more spotlight onto the title.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for more details and metrics as time passes, and also for a possible release date for the Android version of the game. In the meantime those who want to play the game on iOS can sign up to be invited via Epic’s website.
