Fortnite will be back on iOS through Nvidia’s cloud gaming web app
Back in August, Fortnite was removed from the App Store for policy violation as Epic Games had introduced a new way to purchase V-Bucks in-game via “Epic direct payment,” a route that offered players a 20% discount. Epic and Apple were filing lawsuits seeking damages, but the legal battle did not lead anywhere.
Nvidia's Cloud Gaming Service- GeForce NOW is available in beta right now and its more than 5 million registered users can use the app on Safari on the iPhone or iPad and play the games they want. Including Fortnite.
Fortnite is coming back on iOS
Fortnite’s PC version is available through GeForce NOW, thanks to Nvidia and Epic’s partnership around cloud gaming that allows Epic Game Store titles to be streamed through Nvidia’s platform.
However, Fortnite isn’t ready for the iOS version of GeForce NOW quite yet, and Epic and Nvidia are working to bring improved touch controls to the game.
The major advantage of GeForce NOW, currently, is that Epic Games’ Fortnite can be played on Apple devices again. While it does involve an annoying workaround and can be actually playable once Epic and Nvidia work out some kinks, but it is coming back.
News of Fortnite’s return to iOS via GeForce NOW was first reported by the BBC, earlier this month ahead of Nvidia’s official announcement.
