Fortnite Battle Royale | How to download, new mobile version, battle pass and everything you need to know

On Xbox One

Similarly to on a PS4, you’ll have to search for Fortnite Battle Royale in the store. It should be labelled as free, unlike the paid Fortnite editions which are for the base game. You can also do this in your browser. 

On Mobile

While a version of Fortnite: Battle Royale has been announced for mobile devices, it is not currently available. This mode will support cross-play and cross progression (meaning your character remains constant on all supported platforms) between iOS, PlayStation 4, PC and Mac, with Android support coming at a later date.

Signups for beta events for the mobile version of Fortnite will be made available on from Monday, March 12.

What modes are in Battle Royale?

Currently there are three permanent game modes available in Fortnite: Battle Royale – solo, duo and squad. You can switch the game mode through the Battle Royale main menu.

Solo pits individuals against each other in a 100-player fight to the death. Only one person can win, and with 99 potential enemies, this makes solo mode a much more challenging experience.

Squad play allows up to five players, be they friends formed before finding a match or strangers placed together during matchmaking, to form a team. While there are still 100 players, being split into 20 teams of 5 makes squad mode a more forgiving and cooperative way to play Fortnite.
