Fortnite' Arrives This GFN Thursday With GeForce Performance You Can Touch

19/05/2022

Fortnite on GeForce NOW with touch controls on mobile is now available to all members, streaming through the Safari web browser on iOS and the GeForce NOW Android app.

The full launch - including the removal of the waitlist - follows a successful beta period in which more than 500,000 participants streamed over 4 million sessions to hundreds of mobile device types.

The closed beta gave the GeForce NOW team the opportunity to test and learn, which resulted in optimized on-screen touch controls and game menus, with gameplay that feels intuitive. The end result is a touch experience for gamers to enjoy.

We're thanking the beta participants, whose millions of streamed sessions made these improvements possible, with a three-day Priority membership - or three-day extension for existing RTX 3080 and Priority members. See below for details.

Streaming Fortnite' on GeForce NOW GeForce NOW provides millions of gamers the opportunity to stream their favorite PC games - like Fortnite - to nearly any device. Games render on PCs in the cloud with high-performance NVIDIA GPUs and deliver gameplay back to those devices in a fraction of a second.

Getting started is easy. Visit the GeForce NOW membership page and choose from one of three levels of performance, including a Free membership option. RTX 3080 and Priority members get an upgraded experience with higher quality graphics, faster access to servers and more features. After signing up, download native GeForce NOW game streaming apps for PC, Mac, Android or TV, or start streaming right away from play.geforcenow.com.

Members can link their Epic Games account from the Settings > Connections menu to automatically sign in to Fortnite upon game launch.

Get in touch with your inner Battle Royale champion playing Fortnite across mobile devices. With the addition of touch controls, Fortnite mobile players get GeForce performance they can touch. RTX 3080 members stream improved graphics that render at up to 120 frames per second on select 120Hz Android devices and can play with millions of other Fortnite players around the world.

GeForce NOW manages patches and game updates for members. As new seasons arrive or a new mode drops, members are always game ready. When no-build Battle Royale arrived in Fortnite with the launch of Fortnite Zero Build, GeForce NOW members were able to play right away.

For tips on gameplay mechanics or a refresher on playing Fortnite with touch controls, check out Fortnite's Getting Started page.

A Three-Day Thank You to Beta Participants As a thank you to members who helped improve Fortnite mobile touch controls during the closed beta period, participants can redeem a three-day Priority membership to GeForce NOW. Priority members get higher performance, access to premium servers and extended six-hour session lengths, for an upgraded gaming experience.

Members redeem the free promotional membership - or extension of their existing Founders, Priority or RTX 3080 membership - by logging into the redemption portal and following the instructions to activate. Beta participants will also receive an email in the coming days with additional details.

DEADCRAFT (New release on Steam)

Old World (New release on Steam)

With the power to take great gaming on the go with you, we've got a question this weekend. Let us know your answer on Twitter or in the comments below.
