Fortnite, the popular Battle Royale game, has been out of commission on iOS since the unseemly feud between Apple and Epic Games broke out earlier this year. However, iPhone and iPad owners can get it back on their Apple devices through a new solution, thanks to Nvidia’s cloud gaming platform, GeForce Now. The service originally began rolling out to all Windows, Mac, and Android users last February, after weeks of beta testing that began last year on Android.
According to the BBC, the San Diego-based chip giant is said to be ready to introduce the game to GeForce Now in the coming weeks, allowing iPhone and iPad users to play with any standard mobile web browser, such as Safari. The company has yet to announce any official release deadline, but the report claims it could happen “before winter break.”
It’s worth noting that Nvidia had previously revealed that it is looking to bring GeForce Now to the web on both desktop and mobile platforms, allowing people to access the service using any WebRTC-compatible browser on any platform. While the feature was originally intended for Chromebooks, now it will apparently also help Fortnite fans play games on iPhones and iPads.
Apple had removed Fortnite from the App Store after Epic introduced a new in-game payment processing option to save the 30% commission that Apple charges for every transaction made through its platform. Later, Apple canceled Epic’s developer accounts on Mac and iOS and removed all of their other games from the App Store. Since then, the companies have been embroiled in legal disputes, and the two have filed multiple lawsuits with each other.
