Fortnite is an online multiplayer video game first released in 2017 and developed by Epic Games. It was Epic’s version of a battle royale following the huge success which PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds received, better known as PUBG. Epic adopted the Cartoonish approach to character models and environment, which was very criticized at first but then became a worldwide phenomenon.
Seeing the huge success of Fortnite on PC & gaming consoles, Epic decided to rebuild the game from scratch for its mobile port. This comes after PUBG and Tencent collaborated, bringing PUBG to mobile devices. The mobile version of the game is still in beta so be ready to encounter bugs. As the game demands very high specifications, it doesn’t run on lower-end devices.
Only a few select devices can run the game at the moment as the game is very graphics intensive and has problems running even on flagship grade hardware. Hopefully Epic can optimise the game so that it can run on all types of hardware just like PUBG also you can see the complete supported devices lists here.
