Fortnite is one of the most popular games at the moment with millions of players on the different platforms the title is available. Now, finally, the renowned Battle Royale title Fortnite for Android is available for everyone.
Up till now, Android users who wanted to play Fortnite beta version required an invitation to join the testing program for the game. Luckily, Epic Games has now made the beta version available for everyone who possesses a compatible Android device.
How to install Fortnite for Android
Fortnite Battle Royale came to Android in August, but only on compatible Samsung Galaxy devices. However, since then, Epic Games’ title supports more smartphones. Unfortunately, the game is very demanding, so if you have an older device don’t expect to run Fortnite at its maximum level of details. Also, low- and mid-range phones might not run the game at all.
Also, Fortnite comes with a stand-alone installation package so that you won’t find the game on Google Play Store, as usual. Thus, to install the game, you need to access “fortnite.com/android” with your Android device or scan the QR code on the Epic Games website. Once you’ve done that, the package would start downloading.
And, now Fortnite for Android is finally available for everyone with compatible devices, so you don’t need anymore to sign up for the beta version.
