While you can download Fortnite for iOS-it's huge at 2GB-you will require an invite code to play the game. They started a limited distribution of the game invites which started a few hours ago and apparently was enough to make Fortnite the most downloadable game ever in the United States and placing No. 3 in Canada and No. 5 in Great Britain. Are you a player with invite codes left to share? All you really need to do to prepare yourself for the release is sign up and wait for your eventual invite to be one of the first to get your hands on this mobile launch.

Once the game is downloaded, on the home screen you'll see a message which will ask if you have signed up already.

If a friend has received an invite, he or she will soon receive friend invite codes as well.
