One of the most popular games that has captivated millions around the world is Fornite (iOS) which played on desktop computers and dedicated gaming consoles such as the Xbox and PlayStation. Most recently, the game has been made for iOS users although this was only available for those who were either invited to the game by the developers or by others who already received an invite. However, the game is now public so that anybody who wishes to play on their iOS device can do so.

As a game that has players eliminating each other from a map that gets smaller, only one person can remain victorious which introduces a competitive element like never before. Furthermore, players are able to build and destroy different elements of the environment which makes it extremely dynamic as there are endless possibilities to explore. Given the different features that are made possible through the game, Fortnite has been widely popular, especially over Twitch where players are able to live-stream their gameplay to others. As the game has been immensely popular among all age groups, it is logical for the developers, Epic Games, to expand the offerings to the mobile market as a result of the large number of gamers on mobile systems as opposed to dedicated gaming consoles. Furthermore, the game is said to be cross-platform so that players of different consoles are able to play with one another across different device types.
