Fortnite mobile is the mobile version of Epic game you know (fortnite) from PCs and consoles, having the same weapons, the same map and an identical update timetable.

The controls are adapted for touchscreen, with some actions automated to make it less fiddly, including picking up items and opening doors.

Elements of Fortnite’s UI are different on Android too, with extra building buttons popping up, and there are both on-screen footstep and gunshot indicators to tell you the direction of any nearby sounds. Other than that, Fortnite on mobile is the same game.
