Everyone can now play Fortnite on iOS thanks to GeForce Now cloud streaming
After four months of closed testing, Nvidia’s GeForce Now online gaming service now offers a touchscreen-optimized version of Fortnite for iOS and Android. It means iPhone users will be able to play one of the world’s most popular games again after it was removed from the App Store in August 2020 for circumventing Apple’s in-app payment mechanism. On iOS, GeForce Now is accessed through the internet, while Android users can use an app.
Following a months-long trial period, Nvidia claims that 500,000 customers streamed over 4 million Fortnite experiences over the service. Nvidia claimed that the testing allowed them to improve its “on-screen touch controls and game menus.” Hopefully, the adjustments solve the “finicky” control method that my colleague Jay Peters described in January.
