Epic Games’ Fortnite has grown massively in popularity since launching in July 2017. After not quite having the impact the team had hoped, the inclusion of a Battle Royale mode capitalised on a trend and amassed millions of players across all platforms in recent months.
As an online multiplayer experience, there’s always plenty of updates, new maps and modes always right around the corner. Therefore, Trusted Reviews has compiled all of the latest below.
Fortnite News – It’s going mobile
In a recent blog post, Epic Games said it will be bringing Fortnite to iOS first and foremost with an invite-only event set to take place in the near future.
“Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices! On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates. Starting Monday, you can sign-up for the Invite Event on iOS. Support for Android will be coming in the next few months.”
In addition, a partnership with Sony means that cross-play and cross-progression will eventually be available across PS4, PC, Mac, iOS, Android and Xbox One.

Players can head over to this website to register their interest in the upcoming playable event. Loot Llamas are also coming to Fortnite this week. In Save the World mode they can be broken open and reward players with cosmetics and upgrades. We presume they’ll service the same function in Battle Royale.
Fortnite Update – Any new features?
The latest update for Fortnite arrives today across PS4, Xbox One and PC. Update 3.2 brings with a limited edition mode in the form of Victory Royale. This mode pits five teams of 20 players against each other until a single winner emerges victorious. Epic Games also impressed interest in more limited modes like this in a new blog post.
To be more specific, Epic Games has said it hopes the run the following mode variants in the next month or so:
- Blitz Mode (shorter matches!)
- Drop into the first circle
- Generally less time between circles
- Team sizes in between 50v50 and squads
- 50 v 50 v2
- Delay to jetpack feature
Fortnite Battle Pass – What’s in it?
The Season 3 Battle Pass is now available for 950 V-Bucks, and comes with more rewards than all previous iterations. Among the new items include pickaxes, gliders, emotes and a variety of other new cosmetic goodies. These will take a while to unlock, so players have plenty to keep them busy for the coming weeks.
You can find the full breakdown of things over on Epic’s website.

Update 3.1.0 saw a new point of interest added to Battle Royale in the form of Lucky Landing. This chaotic abode can be located on the southern edge of the map if you fancy venturing there in a future game. Do be careful, as its tight corners are no doubt hiding plenty of loot and plenty of players waiting to pounce.
Victorious players are also granted 10 seconds on control at the end of match if they want to gather any additional loot or perform in a bit of shameless gloating.
