Epic Games has revealed how iPhone users can stay connected with Fortnite when the game releases its fourth season of chapter 2.

First, some context:

  • Epic Games and Apple remain in a legal and public relations battle after Apple dropped Fortnite from the app store, which I wrote about for Deseret.com.
  • The decision came after Epic Games added a discount if you bought the game’s virtual currency through Epic’s new payment system instead of Apple’s system.

  • Once Appledropped Fortnite, Epic Games decided to sue Apple.
  • For now, Fortnite remains out of the App Store. So when Fortnite releases chapter 2, season 4, iPhone users will no longer have a chance to play the game since they can’t update it.

How to stay connected:

Epic Games revealed four notes about how iPhone users can continue to play the game when the new season drops.

  1. Log in to your Epic Games account to make sure your data, purchased items and information is up to date.
  2. Review Epic Games’ list of devices that allow Fortnite. You may have access to one of these so you can install the game there and begin playing immediately.
  3. Androidusers can still play the game. More on that here.
  4. You can message @AppStore on social media and use the hashtag #FreeFortnite.
