GeForce Now On iOS

Fortnite to Be Brought Back to Apple Devices by Nvidia Epic Games in'Near Future Nvidia and Epic said Fortnite will return to iPhone models through the device's Safari web browser

Signing up for the Founders membership will grant you an extended session of six hours along with a host of other benefits, such as queue priority and being able to experience Nvidia's RTX graphical improvements, like ray tracing, on mobile.

Despite this scintillating news that mobile Safari will allow Fortnite to take a backdoor into the iOS platform, users no doubt would prefer that Apple and Epic kiss and make up so that the iOS Fortnite app can return. Nvidia is currently working with Epic Games to develop a touch-friendly version of the game for GeForce Now. With over 80 games now on Stadia, and 135 to be available before the end of the year, seeking approval for every title isn't practical.

And soon, so will Fortnite appear on the Nvidia service, completely bypassing Apple's App Store.

Apple's strict App Store policies prohibit game streaming services like Nvidia's. Just today, NVIDIA announced browser support for its streaming gaming service GeForce NOW, with plans to bring Fortnite back to iOS devices. While I think there are plenty of experiences that still need to be served as packaged apps (i.e. mobile games that run locally), It would be wrong to say it's the best way forward for most experiences nowadays. "Alongside the unbelievable team at Epic Games, Nvidia is working to enable a touch-friendly version of Fortnite, which will delay availability of the game", the company told reporters.

Instead of downloading an app, iPhone and iPad owners can instead head to the GeForce Now portal in Safari and use paired gamepad to play any of their already owned PC or Mac games from a number of different providers, including Steam, Epic Games and UPlay. Of course, that happened because Epic Games tried to get out of paying Apple's 30 percent App Store "tax" by offering its own in-app payment methods. Epic then sued both Apple and Google for anti-competitive practices.

A public trial of Google's Stadia cloud gaming service is coming soon to iPhone and iPad devices, reports PCMag. It allows players to play PC games they have on their cloud, provided they are compatible. Because of this specification, the developers will need some more time before they can release Fortnite on iOS.
