Playing Fortnite Battle Royale on the iPhone or iPad is fun enough thanks to the onscreen controls, but it could be better.
And now we may have finally reached that point. This week, Epic Games released an update for its ridiculously popular battle royale game for iOS and Android. With it comes wireless controller support. Specifically, Fortnite now supports MFi controllers for both the iPhone and iPad, meaning players can now jump into the battle using a wireless controller to get the job done and obtain that last person standing title.
This update brings the game up to version 7.30. Along with support for MFi controllers, the title now features a new Frost Grenade (which does what you might expect given the name of the weapon), as well as brings back the “Solid Gold” limited time mode. The update is available now for iOS devices.
Fortnite has become a smash-hit for Epic, and one that does not appear to be slowing down at all. In three months last year, and just from iOS users alone, the title earned $100 million. Epic has found a pretty easy way to launch a live service that continually adds new content on a regular basis, which is bookended with new seasons that can change the very map, add new weapons, and more.
However, it doesn’t always go smoothly. Last year, for instance, Epic discovered that it can’t just add new game-changing weapons into the game whenever it wants, because Fortnite has a substantial eSports presence and doing so can have disastrous consequences for players.
