Fortnite Will Be Made Available For iOS Users Again Soon Via GeForce Now

To circumvent Apple’s ban of Fortnite on iOS devices, plans have been devised to let users play the game via NVIDIA’s cloud gaming service in Safari

According to BBC, to circumvent Apple’s ban of Fortnite on iOS devices, plans have been devised to let users play the game via GeForce Now – NVIDIA’s cloud gaming service in Safari.

NVIDIA has designed a version of its GeForce Now to work on Safari on iPadOS and iOS. Fortnite, which has been removed from the App Store as a result of the ongoing tension between Apple and Epic Games, looks to be the prime title that will be featured.

The iPhone maker removed Fortnite from its App Store in August after Epic Games introduce a workaround that allows users to avoid cutting part of their payment for Apple.

What came next showed that everything was part of a large scheme. Hours after the removal, Epic Games filed a lawsuit against Apple accusing the Cupertino tech giant of engaging in anti-competitive acts.

By using a streaming service, Epic Games will be able to circumvent the ban from Apple as Fortnite is no longer an app. Users of iPhones and iPads can play the game for free via the basic tier of GeForce Now. However, the sessions are limited to only one hour.

There are other streaming services that have plans to reach iOS users via Safari. Some of the names are Microsoft xCloud, Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia. However, none of them offers Fortnite, leaving Apple users with no other choice but GeForce Now.

While NVIDIA has made the service available for Mac, it has said nothing about Now coming to iOS. The company is thought to do so before the holiday season.

After Epic Games’ request that requires Apple to allow Fortnite to go back to App Store was denied by a judge, the trial for the two companies is scheduled for May.
