Fortnite comes back to iOS, but…

As everyone knows, the battle between Apple and Epic Games, the developer of the game, led to its removal from the App Store. It was a big shock for all the fans across the globe who used to play it on mobile. But fortunately, the game’s coming back.

However, the announcement comes with certain conditions. In its official blog, Nvidia mentioned that the Epic Games title will return, but on iOS Safari, the browser on iPhones and iPads. With the closed beta, developers will have limited time to participate and run the game on their mobiles.

Starting next week, Fortnite will be available to play through iOS Safari on Apple devices. The closed beta will remain open for registration to all GeForce NOW members. They can then test out the “server capacity, graphics delivery and new touch controls performance.”

Selected members will be admitted in the format of batches in the coming weeks.

However, it’s important to note is that a paid GeForce Now membership is not necessary to participate in the Fortnite closed beta program.

Fans can definitely take a breath of relief now after the coming about of this major news.
