"Share them with your friend to give them instant access to the Fortnite Invite Event on iOS".

Yesterday's Fortnite update had many players feeling a little jumpy as players were starting to report seeing an increase in texture pop-in. This is necessary for those who are current Fortnite players and would like their progress to transfer over to the mobile version of the game.

Fortnite on iOS requires an internet connection and iOS 11. A new report from VentureBeat confirms that, although it's in limited distribution and has only been out for a few hours, Fortnite has already become the number one most downloaded iPhone game in the United States.

If the idea of playing a battle royale shooter on your mobile device sounds appealing, then you should know that Fortnite is available on iOS. And this morning, the publisher launched a beta for the mobile version, with thousands of invites sent to interested players.

UPDATE 8:15 pm ET: If you are experiencing issues with login, sign up or launching the Fortnite Mobile game, Epic Games' entire website has been experiencing issues causing intermittent issues with Fortnite this evening.

The Fortnite download is now live. You can see some of that in action in the embedded trailer above. "You have new friend invites ready to send!" the email reads.

As mentioned at the top of this article, only certain devices can now run Fortnite on Mobile. Though, sadly, by gradually it doesn't mean you would get an invite as soon as you request Epic.

At this point, you will be asked whether you're already a Fortnite player in any other platform such as PC, Xbox, iPhone, or PS4.

It is largely heartbreaking to hear, but it is true that you won't be able to play the game if you don't happen to have an invite.

After choosing your device, you'll be added to the list.

Though the game servers experienced downtime Thursday evening due to the surge of traffic from mobile downloaders, the issues aren't entirely related to server problems.
