Fortnite returns to Apple devices via GeForce backdoor

Fortnite is returning to iOS devices, but not in the App Store.Instead, it will be available through the Safari mobile browser GeForce Now, which will begin a closed beta test of the redesigned mobile version of Fortnite next week.

Epic’s hit battle royale game Fortnite hasn’t been on the App Store since Apple removed it from the App Store in August 2020. A direct payment system followed in Fortnite, bypassing Apple’s own payment processing and the 30% fee it charges. Epic promotes its in-house payment system by offering Fortnite V-Bucks at a discount — but only if they’re purchased outright.
