You don't need an invite to start playing Fortnite Battle Royale on iPhone or iPad anymore.

Epic Games has officially announced that weapon vending machines will be coming to Fortnite Battle Royale in the near future, after a player had discovered the never before seen feature thanks to a bug.

Be that as it may, Fortnite Battle Royale has recently surpassed GTA 5 in monthly active users. The game left beta and is now available publicly for the iOS devices. Optimising games for Android devices tends to be a bit more hard than Apple devices, on account that the hardware used in Android phones could either be more powerful or ill-equipped to handle such titles.

While open to all iOS users, Epic reminds that there are restrictions on what iPhones and iPads can play the game.

There is a slight caveat: the game won't work on iOS devices which are insufficiently powerful, and requires iOS 11 and an internet connection.

The iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3 or an iPod Touch users can not enjoy the game. Its free to play formula went on to win the hearts of 3.4 million concurrent players across PC and console before cracking mobile.

The year 2018 was good for Epic Games and it saw rise in sales of Fortnite.

Invites were served on the first come first basis, yet there were many who couldn't get one.

The smash hit from Epic Games has crossed another massive milestone, according to influencer marketing platform Matchmade.

The development team have confirmed that matchmaking has been re-enabled although players will experience a login queue when attempting to access the game.
