Q: Why haven’t I received an invite?
A: We’re sending out invites as our services scale up to handle more players with the goal of maintaining a healthy player population. Not everyone will get in at the same time. After you sign up at www.fortnite.com/mobile, you will be notified via email once you get in.
Q: My friend received an invite and they signed up after me, what gives?
A: Factors that contribute to the order in which players receive invites include sign-up order, proximity to a data center, and device model. If your friend got invited by Epic, check with them to see if they have a friend code to share with you.
Q: Will Bluetooth controllers work?
A: Not initially. Bluetooth controller support is coming later.
Q: Will there be voice chat?
A: Not initially. Later, we plan to support voice chat.
