Play Fortnite On Geforce Now

The “Fortnite mobile touch experience” streaming on GeForce NOW is no longer in beta, meaning all GeForce NOW players can play Fortnite on mobile with touch controls. Prefer a different control input? You can play with a keyboard-and-mouse on most GeForce NOW-supported devices, and play with a controller on all GeForce NOW-supported devices!

Because GeForce NOW streams games via the cloud, it still works well on most low-end devices as long as you have a high-speed internet connection. Check out our FAQ below to learn more about playing Fortnite on GeForce NOW.
