Fortnite Android beta invites: all supported phones and devices

Fortnite for Android reminds users to be safe, and to block installation from unknown sources

While the App Store allows users to only download an app, Android users have the option of downloading APKs (Android Package Kits) and other external files from anywhere on the internet.

After acquiring a skin, a player would then choose a weapon category and then pick which specific gun they want the skin to be on.

While normally you just go onto the google Play Store and search for an app, Epic Games has kept Fortnite off the service, avoiding the 30% fee Google takes for being on the store, assuming that Fortnite is a big enough game that players will work out how to find the app regardless.

Fortnite Battle Royale for Android will be available on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 as soon as the phone is released. If you don't have one of the phones below, you are unable to play the game at this time.

It was nearly three weeks ago that Fortnite fans caught wind that a new sniper rifle weapon was nearing release, with Epic Games finally confirming its impending arrival today.

At present, the top search result on the Google Play Store for "Fortnite" is its direct competitor; PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mobile. You'll be able to download it right out of the gate once you sign up, but you'll have to wait for Epic to grant you access in order to actually be able to play it on your device.

"There is a chance that it will even surpass what we've witnessed thus far, based on factors such as the game's increasing popularity, the growing impact of each new season's Battle Pass on revenue (these release every 10 weeks), and the potential for players in countries where both Google Play and the iOS version are not available to directly download the APK and spend in the game", reads the report.

How to download Fortnite Android?

In a nutshell, the issue is that Epic Games distributes Fortnite for Android outside the Play Store, which is a bit unusual; virtually all popular Android apps are on the Play Store, and this does keep users (somewhat) more safe. From there, you'll be able to start playing. Because the game is offered outside of the hardware's main storefront, make sure you are not downloading from anywhere dubious.
