We've honed in on performance and quality of life changes, addressing numerous minor issues that have surfaced from the last few patches, "Epic Games summed up the changes coming with this patch in their notes".

Wrapping up a insane day for gaming that included a new Call of Duty, a sequel to The Division and confirmation that Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Switch, Epic Games surprised everyone on Thursday evening by revealing that multiplayer smash hit Fortnite Battle Royale is heading to iOS and Android. Epic explained in their blog post that the cross-platform integration is "in partnership with our friends at Sony", which explains why Xbox gamers are SOL. The same game on all platforms.

Epic Games claims the mobile version of the game will bring "console quality graphics and action". "Play when you want, where you want". That's to say a player using an Xbox will be able to play with another player using a mobile device, like a smartphone or tablet. That sounds pretty cool, and it'll be interesting to see how it works in practice.

Amazon's Alexa is creeping some users out with an eerie, random laugh
The latest tech device that's got Twitter talking is Amazon's trusty companion and intelligent personal assistant, Alexa . Streaming Deezer on Alexa will come with a handful of features beyond simply asking Alexa to "play music on Deezer".

You can sign up to join the invite list on the Fortnite website starting on Monday, March 12. You'd have to imagine that console/PC players would have an advantage. If you don't receive an invite right away, don't worry. If you do get in, you'll get codes to share with friends, so that's good. In order to participate in the test, you'll need an internet connection and iOS 11 on at least an iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 devices.

"Fortnite" is a battle-royale style game, where 100 online players fight against each other on a large map to become the last survivor. We'll report back with more details on Battle Royale's mobile edition as they're announced.
