Fortnite is now on the cloud. On May 5th, Epic Games unveiled a partnership with Microsoft in a deal that saw the world-famous battle royale game available for free on Xbox’s cloud gaming service, making it the first free-to-play game to be added to the service.
This means that, for the first time in a long time, iPhone and iPad owners can now play Fortnite if they have a Microsoft cloud gaming account. This is a huge step for Epic Games because the Fortnite application was pulled from the Apple App Store quite a while ago. Now, though, accessing the game on iOS devices will be a piece of cake.
The beauty of Xbox cloud gaming is that you don’t need to install any extra apps or take any unnecessary steps to make the program work or play the game. If you want to play Fortnite for free, all you need is an Android device, an iOS device, or a Windows PC. You can easily access the Xbox Cloud Gaming program by pulling up the service on any supported web browser. And, unsurprisingly, you don’t need any kind of special membership or account to access the game since it’s free.
Xbox’s cloud gaming service is now available in 26 countries around the globe. This includes Mexico, the UK, the United States, Japan, France, Canada, and more.
