Fortnite Battle Royale event at E3 brings celebs, esports pros together

If you're a newcomer to Fortnite Battle Royale, the good news is that this is perhaps the most accessible version of the game thus far. However, be warned, the game size comes in at a hefty 2GB so make sure your iPhone or iPad has enough memory and that the download speeds are up to scratch. Also, since this is a multiplayer game, it will require a constant internet connection. As planned, smoke grenades have been "vaulted", while a new Blitz mode for Battle Royale promises shorter, more aggressive battles.

In what might be one of the shrewdest business decisions we've ever seen Fortnite's developers Epic Games announced past year that it would be launching a free-to-play version of the game called Battle Royale. And Epic updates Fortnite on a weekly basis, so there is a lot to keep up with!

However if you don't play the game, it seems that you will be put on a waitlist in which you will have no choice but to wait until you are invited. It's an intuitive control scheme, but even then, it feels tough to line up shots, as if you're working against the controls rather than with them. If so, Epic Games can add you to the list and find your progress and purchases from other devices after you log in.

"Factors that contribute to the order in which players receive invites include sign-up order, proximity to a data centre, and device model", the post reads.

Apart from the invite-only thing, the game is an iOS 11-exclusive and will not work on devices running iOS 10 or older.

The first step is simple: sign up to Fortnite on iOS via this link to receive an invite code.

Not much is known about who the 100 players will be.

Fortnite Party Royale appears to be the name of the larger event, which is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles alongside E3 2018.
