Fortnite Battle Royale's jetpacks won't be arriving in update v3.3

Fortnite’s v3.3 Update Includes New Intense Game Mode Llamas And Remote Explosives Shannon Grixti

Activision says it's "keenly aware" of one particular game (or game mode) in battle royale, made outrageously popular by the likes of PUBG and Fortnite. While gamers wait for Fortnite to arrive on iPhones and iPads, the wait for cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One continues.

What we meant by that was that because our timeline was so short, and we wanted to create a playable version immediately, it wasn't "hey we could do all these insane things" it was "what can we do, and how can we get it done as quickly as possible". The company was facing server problems preventing users from logging in and causing issues with matchmaking, but Epic announced that users should be able to play without trouble now.

It goes without saying that not everyone who signs up will receive an e-mail invite for Fortnite on iOS.

Happily, Epic Games has delivered, bringing news of a solution to all those stuck with an accidentally-nerfed oriental arsenal.

The sign-up order is a given, as it shows how interested a person is on playing Fortnite on the iPhone or iPad. Epic Games would like to make sure that Fortnite works well on the lower end of the eligible devices. Patch notes could still be posted over the next few hours, but that probably won't happen until the current issue is resolved.

Device model will likely not limit the chosen players to the newest iOS devices, though. This was further proven when two people from the different consoles were able to connect with each other in an online match "accidentally" over the weekend. The game will support "cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase" across PC, iOS. The Battle Royale game gained so much popularity that Epic Games recently announced the mobile versions of this game.
