The Daily Moot: Fortnite Returning to iOS?News Picks
1. Fortnite Returning to iOS?
It sounds like Fortnite may soon be returning to Apple devices albeit in a roundabout way. According to a recent report by the BBC, Fortnite will soon be playable via Nvidia’s GeForce Now game streaming service. The report goes on to state that although GeForce Now is not currently available on iOS devices, an announcement confirming its launch is expected to arrive “before the winter holidays.” Because GeForce now will be accessible through Safari’s web browser, players should be able to play Fortnite on iOS without having to worry about Apple’s ban on Epic Games apps. Both Epic and Nvidia declined to confirm the rumors, but assuming the report is true, we’ll likely be receiving some more official information by December.
2. Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Neon Dawn Ubisoft has released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Rainbow Six Siege expansion Operation Neon Dawn. Operation Neon Dawn will be the game’s 19th expansion and will introduce the game’s newest operator, Aruni. A laser-wielding defender with a prosthetic arm, Aruni will be the 57th operator on the Rainbow Six Siege roster, as she follows the release of Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher as codename Zero. Operation Neon Dawn is set to be officially revealed on November 8; you can check out the teaser trailer for the upcoming expansion below.
3. PS5 No Expandable SSD on Launch Sony has revealed that the PlayStation 5 will not support expandable SSD storage on launch despite the console having an internal slot dedicated for it. It will be available in the future, as Sony explained that it’s “reserved for a future update,” but the company didn’t indicate a time frame as to when the update might arrive. The PlayStation 5 will still support external USB storage on launch, so players shouldn’t have to worry too much about having access to all their favorite games.
