Fortnite is coming back to iOS devices via Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud gaming platform more than a year after it was removed from Apple's App Store.

To be clear up front, you still can't download Fortnite from the App Store. The dispute between Apple and Epic Games came to some sort of a conclusion in September, when a judge ruled in favor of Apple in 9 of 10 counts following a trial in May, but Fortnite remains banned from the App Store. However, starting next week, players looking to play Fortnite on their iPhone or iPad can simply stream the game from the Safari browser using Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud gaming platform.

Today, Nvidia and Epic announced that they'd been working on a "touch-friendly version of Fortnite" to stream on mobile devices via the cloud. The limited-time closed beta begins next week on iOS and Android devices, and you can sign up right now for a chance to be selected for the beta.

Fortnite's long-awaited Chapter 3 went live in December with a host of major changes and additions, including a completely new map, a new arsenal of weapons and consumables, camping (yes, camping), and more.

After scoring a degree in English from ASU, I worked in - *shudders* - content management while freelancing for places like SFX Magazine, Screen Rant, Game Revolution, and MMORPG. Now, as GamesRadar's west coast Staff Writer, I'm responsible for managing the site's western regional executive branch, AKA my apartment, and writing about whatever horror game I'm too afraid to finish.
