‘Fortnite: Battle Royale’ Invites Now Being Sent, Version 3.3 Patch Available Now

TouchArcade Rating:

Check your inboxes: the first wave of invites for Fortnite (Free) on iOS are now going out. Not everyone is going to get in with the initial batch of invites, but Epic promises that more players will get in with the coming days and weeks. Also, if you have a friend that gets acess to the game, they can offer you a code to sign up for the preview event yourself. And there is the cross-platform multiplayer, so if you have the game on PS4, Xbox One, or desktop, you can play with someone who has the mobile version Fortnite is available on the App Store, but for now your Epic Games account must have access to the game in order to play.

It appears that the 3.3 patch, out today, was required before Fortnite‘s mobile invites could start to go out. Epic promised that the mobile Fortnite will feature the same weekly updates as every other version of the game, so while the mobile version will get its own optimizations and performance tweaks, they’ll not miss out on any of the content that everyone else gets. And Epic updates Fortnite on a weekly basis, so there is a lot to keep up with!

Fortnite version 3.3 adds in Remote Explosives, which you can use to detonate opponent’s fortresses in quick fashion. The Supply Llama will appear in unexpected places and provide some sweet loot, but only three will appear per match. They contain 500 wood, stone, and metal; 10 stacks of each ammo type; three traps and consumables. Epic has vaulted the smoke grenade in this update. Version 3.3 also includes Blitz mode, which will enable on March 19th. The storm times are shorter, and the maximum match length is 15 minutes, with changed loot availability.

Check out the full patch notes at Epic’s site. And if you have your invite, get downloading and get playing, let us know what you think!
