New Touch-Control Version of Fortnite for Mobile
A new touch-control version of Fortnite for mobile (iOS and Android) has also been introduced. According to Nvidia, the new touch-control version means that players can jump in and start playing right away with just the screen and their fingers, no gamepad or keyboard/mouse are needed.
”We’ve been working to enable a touch-friendly version of Fortnite for mobile delivered through the cloud. While PC games in the GeForce NOW library are best experienced on mobile with a gamepad, the introduction of touch controls built by the GeForce NOW team offers more options for players, starting with Fortnite.”
PC games or game engines, like Unreal Engine 4, which support Windows touch events can easily enable mobile touch support on GeForce NOW.
For those who don’t know, GeForce NOW is a paid online cloud-based game streaming service offered by Nvidia. With GeForce NOW, players can enjoy legendary game titles on their different devices including, any laptop, desktop, Mac, SHIELD TV, Android device, iPhone, or iPad.
