Activision may contribute to the battle royale craze

Analyst Believes Call of Duty Might Add A Battle Royal Mode In The Future Activision Hints At Possible Battle Royale Implementation For Future Call of Duty Games

The much-anticipated invites for Fortnite mobile have gone out to select iOS users.

Basically, the game is a Battle Royale. If you signed up to play through the invitation event on iOS, then you might want to check your email; you could have an invitation waiting for you right now! For example, my kids who signed up right after the signup page went live (trust me they were quick), have not received an invite yet, while their friends have. The same map, the same weapons, the same chaos as 100 players fight to survive - everything that made the game so popular will be part of the mobile experience too.

"We'll update you when we have more information". With everyone getting their invites and trying to log in at the same time, the servers are bogged down and there is a good chance you may find your self waiting in the queue until there is room on a server for you.

Oil Pushes Higher, Despite Growing US Output
Brent for May settlement sank 31 cents to settle $64.64/bbl on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. Futures in NY were little changed after surging 3.2 percent Friday, the most since July 25.

Taking to Twitter and Reddit Epic Games stated, "We discovered an issue that will prevent us from releasing v3.3 tomorrow, March 14", the developer writes.

That could change in a matter of six months to one year, as we've already reported that EA is looking into the thing and might possibly add something like that in the next Battlefield (which is said to be Battlefield 2, releasing later this year). Debut footage of the game was taken on an iPhone X and features every feature and ability players have access to on the PC or console version.

Having turned into an overnight phenomenon, Fortnite is finally available to download on the iOS App Store. Are you a Fortnite player? Once it does, you'll know what to do next.
