That is no lengthier established to be the scenario, however, as Nvidia has announced a shut beta that will enable GeForce Now customers to stream the recreation to their smartphones via the iOS Safari browser or the GeForce Now Android app.

And to make this really feel like a correct return to iOS units, the beta will allow players to use Fortnite’s cellular contact controls – even though you can also use a gamepad for a much more optimum encounter.
