The mobile versions will also receive voice chat and improved performance.
Epic Games’ Fortnite has been quite dominant in the free to play space, thanks in no small part to Fortnite: Battle Royale. Following huge revenue on iOS, Epic Games has announced that the Android version of the title arrives this Summer. Expect a more solid release date as we near launch.
The Android version isn’t the only thing Epic has planned for the game’s mobile version. Future updates include allowing players to customize the game’s heads-up display (currently live on iOS), thus letting them remap and re-orient gameplay elements as they see fit.
Voice chat will also be coming to mobile and will include options to mute individual players, all players or simply go with an open mic. Cross platform functionality between the different version is also being looked at. Expect better performance and controls on mobile along with a smaller installation size for the overall game and upcoming updates (not to mention downloading patches in the background).
