How much space will Mobile Fortnite take up

Free Fortnite: Epic continues to put its finger in the Apple wound

Epic launched its attack on Apple a good week ago and since then the game company has hardly missed an opportunity to provoke the technology giant. The "FreeFortnite Cup" is organized on the weekend and Apple is also targeting it.

In itself, the competition announced by Epic Games for Sunday is just a normal tournament for the popular shooter. Or rather, it would be a normal competition. But nothing is normal at Fortnite these days. Of course, this has to do with being kicked out of the Apple App Store.

Fortnite can no longer be found in the Google Play Store either, but this is not particularly dramatic due to the possibility of sideloading on Android.

Farewell to iOS players

The FreeFortnite Cup is the final opportunity for players from all platforms to compete against each other. This is because Fortnite season 4 starts on August 27th and iOS players are only supported up to season 3.

Epic writes in the blog post: "Apple has blocked Fortnite from the App Store, preventing players from updating to new versions."

Taking part is definitely worth it, because Epic Games and partners have put together a more than decent range of prizes, including gaming laptops, tablets, smartphones and all currently relevant consoles.

Epic Games trolls Apple with a "1984" Fortnite video


FU, Apple

But you can also win prizes that directly allude to the dispute with Apple, above all a skin for the "Tart Tycoon": This is that "apple head" in the parody video for Apple's "1984" commercial, the replaces the "big brother" in it. The "Tart Tycoon" skin can also be unlocked relatively easily, because you only have to get ten points in the tournament for it. Points are awarded for active time, eliminations and "Victory Royale" victories.

The best 20,000 players also receive a (real) baseball cap. Of course, this is also an allusion to Apple. Because it bears the slogan "Free Fortnite" and has a llama logo - in the rainbow colors of the classic Apple logo.
