Fortnite Battle Royale will return to iOS whether Apple likes it or not as part of a closed beta.
Today, technology company NVIDIA announced a plan to bring Fortnite back to iOS platforms. The company’s website published an article welcoming players to join a closed beta waitlist for GeForce NOW. This program would allow the mobile community to play Fortnite with “new touch controls.” More importantly, it means players would not have to wait until Epic Games and Apple resolve their legal issues.
GeForce NOW x Fortnite Closed Beta
The closed beta begins January 13, according to the NVIDIA website. At that time, accepted players would take part in a historic moment, considering Fortnite Battle Royale has been absent from iOS since August of 2020.
Here’s some information from the FAQ on NVIDIA’s website:
“We’re working alongside the team at Epic Games to develop an experience all Fortnite gamers and GeForce NOW members will enjoy. The closed beta will be limited in time, but we do not have an exact timeline for how long it will last.”
As far as the selection process goes, the FAQ section has an answer to NVIDIA will choose players:
“Access will be granted based on regional availability and device. You must be a GeForce NOW member on NVIDIA’s Service to be selected. If you subscribe to GeForce NOW through one of our Alliance Partners, please check with your provider to get access to the closed beta.”
