The Epic vs. Apple court case is already underway. While it will be decided in the next three weeks whether Epic or Apple will prevail, some fans are only hoping for one thing: to be able to play Fortnite once again on the iPhone and iPad; this could be a reality in the month of October through GeForce NOW.
Fortnite would return to iOS in October
How you first discovered it iMore, NVIDIA’s director of product management confirmed that October is the “potential” release date for Fortnite on its GeForce NOW cloud gaming platform:
Together with the amazing team at Epic Games, we are working to enable a touch version of Fortnite, which will delay the availability of the game. While the GeForce NOW library is best experienced on mobile devices with a gamepad, touch is the way more than 100 million Fortnite players have built, fought, and danced their way to Victory Royale.
We look forward to delivering a Fortnite mobile cloud streaming experience powered by GeForce NOW. Members can search for the game on iOS Safari in the near future.
NVIDIA GeForce NOW responsible for bringing Battle Royale back to iOS
GeForce NOW launched in November 2020 in beta version on iOS Safari. Since Apple does not allow cloud gaming applications, such as Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud, NVIDIA released a web-based experience:
GeForce NOW streams on iOS Safari, in beta, starting today. That means more than 5 million GeForce NOW members can now access the latest experience by launching Safari from their iPhone or iPad and visiting play.geforcenow.com.
The discovery that Fortnite will potentially launch in October was made during early testimonies of the legal battle between Epic and Apple. With that, GeForce NOW will be the first official platform to stream Fortnite to iOS after its removal from the App Store.
