Fortnite fans will rejoice: it is once again possible to play the famous game on iPhone or iPad. But don’t look for the app on the App Store, because it’s still banned by Apple. Indeed, the manufacturer is continuing its legal battle against Epic Games, the publisher of Fortnite.
But Microsoft has just changed the game by signing an agreement with Epic Games for Fortnite to be offered on the Xbox Cloud Gaming service, available in 26 countries, including France.
