Fortnite fans can now use Microsoft’s Xbox cloud gaming platform to access the game on iOS, Android devices and Windows PC.
The tech giant has announced that it is teaming up with Epic Games to make Fortnite available for free on browser-enabled devices supported with Xbox Cloud Gaming (beta).
“As part of our mission to make gaming more enjoyable and gaming more easy for players, I’m pleased to announce that we’ve supported gaming,” Katherine Gluckstein, Vice President and Head of Product, Xbox Cloud Gaming, said in a blogpost.
It has partnered with Epic Games to make Fortnite available on the browser. Xbox Cloud Gaming (beta) is a device available for free in 26 countries.
This means, those who love to play Fortnite only need two things to play in cloud-backed markets, a Microsoft account or an iOS, iPad, Android phone or tablet, or a Windows PC with Internet access. .
With no installation or subscription required, users only need to go to their web browser xbox.com/play and sign-in with a Microsoft account.
“This is an important step in adding free-to-play titles to the cloud gaming catalog as we continue our cloud journey,” the company said.
He also said – We are starting with Fortnite and will try to bring more free-to-play games that people will love in the future.
At Xbox we want to make gaming easier for the 3 billion players around the world, and the cloud has a key role to play in that mission.
It’s available to all iOS users for the first time since Apple withdrew it from the App Store in 2020 due to disagreements over Apple’s 30 percent developer fee.
Nvidia offered iOS Fortnite gamers a closed beta program in January to play the game, but access was limited.
