Fortnite will soon be playable on iOS for the first time since Apple banned it from the platform in August 2020. The hook? It will only be available through GeForce NOW, Nvidia’s game streaming service.

Fortnite will launch in closed beta on GeForce NOW in the coming weeks and registration for all GeForce NOW members will open on Thursday. Admissions will happen in batches over the course of the beta, with the first invitations rolling out next week. Those admitted will help test server capacity, graphics delivery, and new touch controls.

“Together with the amazing team at Epic Games, we’ve been working to enable a touch-friendly version of Fortnite for mobile, delivered via the cloud,” Nvidia wrote in a blog entry Announcing the beta. “While PC games in the GeForce NOW library are best experienced on mobile with a gamepad, the introduction of touch controls developed by the GeForce NOW team gives gamers more options, starting with Fortnite.”

GeForce NOW runs on iOS via Safari, but is available on Android via its own app.
