Thanks to GeForce Now, you can now play Fortnite on your iPhone or iPad again
Years after its release, Fortnite remains one of the most popular games to have seen the light of day on mobile devices, PC and consoles. Unfortunately for many users, the game is out of reach in the Apple and Google shops, following the never-ending court battle between Epic Games and Apple. Fortunately for some, it is possible to play Fortnite again on iPhone and Android, thanks to NVIDIA’s services.
Nvidia recently announced that, in collaboration with Epic Games, they’ve managed to bring touch controls to the former’s GeForce Now service. If you’re not familiar with GeForce Now, it’s a cloud-based service from which you can play numerous games with the full power of top-tier Nvidia graphics cards. In fact, it’s one of the ways to play games at 120 FPS on the MacBook Pro. What does this mean? If you’re a mobile gamer and part of the GeForce Now service, you can now play Fortnite on your mobile, too, without having to download it from Apple’s App Store or Google’s Play Store.
The only downside to the news at the moment is that it is only available to a limited number of people, who will be able to access it by invitation. These users will be testing the game’s touch controls and the server’s ability to handle the crowds of players. On the bright side, however, it will be completely free, and any GeForce Now subscription level will be able to access the beta without any differentiation.
Nvidia has also let it be known that many other games are expected to include touch button interaction. However, it will be up to the developers themselves to add the new feature. If it happens on a massive scale, we could see a revolution in the mobile gaming world, with many users being able to access AAA games without needing the hardware to run them.
