Nvidia GeForce Now Game Streaming Brings Fortnite Back to iOS

If you miss playing Fortnite on your iPhone, there’s good news: Nvidia is working on bringing the game back to the platform.

Fortnite will be available on iOS via Nvidia’s game streaming service GeForce Now, which can be accessed through the Safari browser. “Fortnite on GeForce Now will launch in a limited-time closed beta for mobile starting next week,” Nvidia said in a blog post on Thursday.

After Epic Games breached the regulations by including a direct payment option inside the multiplayer game, Apple removed Fortnite from the iOS App Store in 2020. The squabble spurred an antitrust struggle in the courts, which has generally found in Apple’s favor so far, though the case is still pending on appeal.

Meanwhile, Apple has rejected Epic Games’ request to reintroduce Fortnite to the App Store. As a result, gamers who had Fortnite loaded on their iPhones for the previous 16 months have been unable to obtain game updates.

Geforce Now videogame streaming service brings Fortnite back to iOS

However, it appears that Epic Games has discovered a new way to bring the multiplayer game to iOS via GeForce Now, which leverages the cloud to broadcast games to the Safari browser on iOS.

Touch controls will also be accessible in the iOS version of Fornite. GeForce Interested Users can now sign up for the closed beta via a waitlist. “In the next weeks, members will be accepted to the beta in phases,” the company said.

Nvidia’s server capacity, graphics delivery, and the game’s touch controllers will all be tested throughout the beta. Members of GeForce Now will be able to stream the game on Android devices as well. However, unlike iOS, Fortnite can still be downloaded via app side-loading on Android.

Nvidia wants to make other touch-friendly games available in the future through GeForce Now, which is now aimed at laptop and desktop users.

“While PC games in the GeForce Now library are best enjoyed on mobile with a gamepad,” Nvidia noted, “the introduction of touch controls designed by the GeForce Now team enables more alternatives for players, starting with Fortnite.”

Although GeForce Now is free to join, your cloud gaming sessions are limited to one hour before you must sign off and rejoin a server. A paid membership, which starts at $9.99 a month, allows you to play for longer periods of time and with better graphics. Running GeForce Now also necessitates a minimum internet speed of 15Mbps.
