This is likely to help speed up building defences during a firefight, although only time will tell how effective this will prove. Android support will arrive sometime in the next few months.

That being said, those who get in will get special invite codes that they can share with their friends. Shortly after that, you will receive a code in your inbox which can be redeemed on the App Store. In terms of hardware, iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, and later are all supported (bummer, I still have an original iPhone 6). As part of a cross-platform strategy, Fortnite Battle Royale devs are bringing the game to phones and tablets this week.

The rollout will be gradual, although there's still a big chance for server issues early on.
