The rumors surrounding one of the most popular Battle Royale games, Fortnite and Samsung were true after all. Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney took to the stage at Barclays Center during the launch of Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone in the market, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to confirm the launch of Fortnite for Android. Sweeney shared some details about the game on Android by adding that the game is now available for Samsung devices. The game will come on other Android-powered devices starting next week. One thing to note here is that the version of Fortnite that Epic Games is launch today is not the final version.
Instead, the company is launching the beta version of the game for Android users with Samsung Galaxy devices. According to Samsung, Galaxy users will be the first to access the Fortnite Beta for “next few days”. This means that the rumor about the game being exclusive to Samsung Galaxy devices for about 30 days was incorrect. The company also provided a list of devices that will be compatible with Fortnite Beta. This list of devices includes Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, S9+, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, S8+, Galaxy S7, and Galaxy S7 Edge.

All Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 users will get an exclusive Fortnite Galaxy skin that can help them stand apart in the game.
