Because Xbox Cloud Gaming streams games via a browser, it still works well on most low-end devices as long as you have a high-speed, low-latency, and stable internet connection.
You do not need an Xbox Game Pass paid subscription to play Fortnite through Xbox Cloud Gaming. All you need is a free Microsoft account, high-speed Internet connection, and compatible device. Once you’re ready, go to Xbox.com/play to start playing with mobile touch controls or a supported controller. See our FAQ below for more details.
On your iPhone or iPad, Android smartphone or tablet, or Windows PC, open your web browser and go to Xbox.com/play. From there, launch Fortnite.
Fortnite through Xbox Cloud Gaming is available through browser only, and is not available to launch via the Xbox Cloud Gaming mobile app, Xbox app on Windows, or the Xbox console game library. See Xbox’s support website for the list of supported web browsers.
Yes! You just need to make sure your Microsoft/Xbox account is linked to the same Epic account you use on other platforms. For help linking your Xbox account to your Epic account, check out the following article: How do I link my console account to my Epic Games account using the web?
If your accounts are linked, your progress will also transfer to other platforms you use your Epic account on.
On Windows devices, all current Fortnite games are available to play through Xbox Cloud Gaming, including Battle Royale/Zero Build, LEGO Fortnite, Fortnite Festival, Rocket Racing, Save the World, and community-made games.
On smartphones and tablets, Save the World is unavailable to play through Xbox Cloud Gaming. However, all other current Fortnite games are available to play.
