Epic Games’ Fortnite hasn’t been available on iOS / iPadOS devices since August 2020, but Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming has resurrected the title. It was originally booted from both the App Store and Google Play for attempting to skip on in-app purchases. The game is now available on supported browser-enabled devices for free with Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) in 26 countries.
The only things you will need are a Microsoft account and an iOS / iPadOS / Android device or Windows PC with internet access. There are no installation or memberships required, simply go to Xbox[dot]com/play on your web browser and sign-in with your Microsoft Account to join friends or achieve a Victory Royale in Fortnite. You’ll be able to use native touch controls or a supported controller. This means mobile players will be able to look out for earthquake cracks in Fortnite again.

It’s an important step to add a Free-to-Play title to the cloud gaming catalog as we continue our cloud journey. We’re starting with Fortnite and will look to bring more Free-to-Play games people love in the future. At Xbox we want to make gaming accessible to the 3 billion players around the world, and cloud has an important role in that mission,” said Microsoft.
