If you have a smartphone, you can now download Fortnite for free. Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming service has made the game more accessible to iPhone and Android users.

Nvidia is bringing full touchscreen compatibility to the popular game. Obi-Wan is coming to Fortnite in just a few days, so this is perfect time.


GPU from Nvidia We now have a way around Epic Games’ legal dispute with Apple to get free access to the game. Apple removed Epic’s app from the App Store permanently after Epic’s fight with iOS. Because of Epic’s dispute with Android, the game could not be downloaded from the Play Store and had to be sideloaded instead.

Now iOS and Android users may start playing Fortnite again via Microsoft’s XBox Game Pass cloud gaming service or the Xbox GamePass app for Android.

The game may now be accessed via Safari on iOS and the GeForce Now app on Android thanks to Nvidia GeForce’s workaround. To get started, all you have to do is sign up for GeForce Now and connect your Epic Games account. You don’t have to join a waiting list. Because it’s broadcast from the cloud, it’s entirely free. The free tier of GeForce Now supports one hour of gameplay at a time. For six-hour sessions, you’ll need to pay $10 a month for priority status.


Earlier this year, Nvidia revealed a limited beta for Fortnite with full touch controllers. A astonishing 500,000 players streamed over 4 million sessions of Fortnite using the service, according to Nvidia’s figures. Nvidia said the testing has allowed it to improve “on-screen touch controllers and game menus.”

Great timing — Obi-Wan Kenobi is coming to Fortnite next week 

Obi-Wan Kenobi is coming to Fornite as soon as next week, so we have another reason to play. Mr. Kenobi, the newest Star Wars character, will appear in the battle royale, according to a recent announcement from Epic Games.

One day before Disney Plus’s new show, Obi-Wan Kenobi, premieres, gamers will be able to purchase an item featuring the Jedi Knight himself on May 26. An additional bundle that includes the Jedi Interceptor glider as well as a pickaxe blade will also be available (unfortunately, we will not get to see a lightsaber.) This seems like a smart next move to get the fans enthused now that Obi-Wan has his own programme.


We’d like to see more crossovers between Fortnite and Star Wars. It has been a pleasure to see characters like the Mandalorian in Fortnite. Nvidia GeForce Now is a compelling option, especially now that we can play Fortnite on our phones for free using full touch controllers.
