Xbox and Epic Games have announced a partnership to make Fortnite the first free-to-play title available on browser-enabled devices running Xbox Cloud Gaming.
In the press release published today, Xbox Cloud Gaming Vice President Catherine Gluckstein highlighted the growth of the service with more than 10 million players on 6,000 different types of devices around the world having streamed games through the Xbox Cloud Gaming Beta as part of Xbox Game Pass ultimate.
Now, the idea of cloud gaming through Xbox will go beyond Game Pass with its first ever free-to-play game. Notably, this means that gamers on not just PC and Android but Apple iOS devices will be able to play Fortnite, which is huge news since Apple and Epic’s famous legal battle that resulted in the game being removed from Apple’s digital storefronts.
Loading up Fortnite through Xbox Cloud Gaming couldn’t be any easier and you can get in on the action right now.
Simply navigate to Xbox.com/play and login with a Microsoft account on a Windows PC, Android phone or tablet, iOS or iPadOS device and play away – no Xbox Game Pass membership needed! Fortnite is playable with native touch controls or supported controllers.
