Fortnite fans are counting down the days until the battle royale phenomenon returns to iPhone. In a surprise announcement earlier this week, Epic Games and NVIDIA confirmed plans to bring Fortnite to iOS. However, due to ongoing legal issues between Epic Games and Apple, Fortnite will not be available directly through the iOS App Store. Instead, Fortnite is returning to iPhone and iPad via NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW app. While there is no concrete release date for Fortnite’s return, some fans will be able to start playing from the week of January 17. To play Fortnite on your iPhone, you must be a GeForce NOW member. To learn more about NVIDIA’s streaming app, check out the guide below.

“Starting next week, Fortnite will launch on GeForce NOW in a limited-time closed beta for mobile, all streamed via the Safari web browser on iOS and the GeForce NOW Android app,” explains NVIDIA.

“The beta is open for registration to all GeForce NOW members and will help test our server capacity, graphics delivery and new touch control performance.

“Members will be admitted to the beta in batches in the coming weeks.”

If you want to enjoy Fortnite on iOS devices, you can sign up to become a GeForce NOW member at the NVIDIA website.

There are three different membership options, including a free tier for new subscribers.

GeForce NOW allows users to stream PC games on various devices such as Internet-enabled TVs, smartphones and underpowered computers.

The most expensive tier – priced at £89.99 for six months – gives users the power of 3080 PC rig via cloud streaming. This includes bells and whistles like ray tracing and 4K HDR.

As stated by NVIDIA, Fortnite iOS gameplay will feature newly updated touch controls.

“In addition to the great team at Epic Games, we’ve been working on a touch-friendly version of Fortnite for mobile delivered via the cloud.

“While PC games in the GeForce NOW library are best experienced on mobile with a gamepad, the introduction of touch controls built by the GeForce NOW team opens up more options for players, starting with Fortnite.”

Apple has removed Fortnite from iOS devices after Epic Games attempted to bypass the App Store for in-game purchases.

Frustrated at having to give Apple a 30% discount on all in-game transactions, Epic filed a lawsuit accusing Apple of monopolistic business practices.

Fingers crossed nothing derails the upcoming release of Fortnite on iPhone via GeForce NOW.
