With Fortnite on xCloud, Xbox chooses a side in the Epic vs.  apple

Fortnite has been absent from iOS and iPad OS since Epic decided that it didn’t want to give the tech giant a cut of in-app purchases anymore. After a lengthy lawsuit that resulted in Apple taking the L, the game is still MIA from the App Store. Sweeney isn’t happy about that, saying Apple went back on its word to reinstate the game. So it’s no wonder that he’s reveling in the return of Fortnite to iPhone and iPad. But Microsoft is seemingly joining in the rubbing of faces into the workaround.

Last updated around 19 hours ago by Shabana Arif Fortnite may now be streamed on nearly any device, even the forbidden fruit. Xbox focuses on Fortnite’s comeback to iPhone and iPad via xCloud. It has its own separate trailer that emphasises Apple’s platforms and everything.

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney reminded everyone that they can now play Fortnite on anything. Including an iPhone or iPad. “Monumental news everyone!” Sweeney tweeted . “Fortnite is now available to play FOR FREE streaming to web browsers on iPhone, iPad, and Android via Xbox Cloud. No subscription required, no 30% Apple tax.” He went on to ask his followers on Twitter what “ridiculous device” they’d played the game on, now that it’s streaming from xCloud. And iPhones and iPads seem to be making up the majority of the replies.

So has anybody played Fortnite on a ridiculous device now that it’s streaming from Xbox Cloud? Smart toaster? Amiga?May 6, 2022 While xCloud allows gamers to access an entire library of titles to stream, Microsoft is cashing in on Fortnite being playable on Apple devices again. It loudly touted the battle royale’s return to iOS and iPad OS in a not-so-subtle, and very specific xCloud trailer.Fortnite seems to be the only game to be getting such a highlight now. Apple’s platforms are the very first ones mentioned, so it looks like Microsoft is happy to advertise the workaround Epic has managed to pull off.

Performance does seem to be an issue for Apple users. One person reported that Fortnite is “pretty choppy” on their iPhone 11 Pro Max. Someone else cited lag on their iPad. Outside of complaints around Apple devices, the rest of the replies are filled with genuine answers, and some funny Photoshops. People are playing Fortnite on the Steam Deck, Amazon Fire TV Cube, Google Nest Hub, and what looks like the Oculus Quest 2. And in the spirit of DOOM, there are mock ups of Fortnite on an ultrasound machine, a pregnancy test, and a calculator.
