If you are one of those people who the exit of Fortnite from iOS left without their favorite game, GeForce Now has very, very good news for you. And it is that although the original Epic game still cannot be installed on iPhones and iPads, NVIDIA’s cloud game service is about to bring the Battle Royale to the devices of those from Cupertino, an excellent solution, since that reconciles Apple’s refusal to allow the game in the App Store with the interests of the players, who do not want to be immersed in the legal skirmishes of both companies.

The main key to this version of Fortnite is that will have touch controls, something that is a novelty in GeForce Now, whose games are designed to be controlled by a controller. To optimize its operation, the two companies, NVIDIA and Epic, have collaborated and, as a result of this work, this opens the doors for more games with touch controls to reach GeForce Now in the future, great news for users of the service. .
