Popular battle royale games which launched its Android version with the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has now become available for every Android user out there. Fortnite after its launch last year by Epic Games has quickly become one of the most played and watched games in the world. And after the launch of the Android version, Fortnite completed the list of all the important platforms that the game can be offered on.

The Android version of Fortnite was introduced at the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in August, and Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games announced that the game will be initially offered only on Samsung devices.

Epic later confirmed that the game will be available on non-Samsung smartphones running Android. Now, the game is available for a bunch of supported Android smartphones as well. If you are interested in checking out Fortnite on your Android smartphone then you simply need to head over to game’s website and sign up for the Android beta. The registration would require you to create an Epic Games account or sign in with your existing account if you have played the game previously on a console or iOS device.

But previously, Android users who were not downloading the game from the Samsung App Store needed an invite to be able to play the game, this is not the case anymore. Once you create your Epic Games account, the process is followed with registration where you need to enter the make and model of your smartphone. Following that process, Epic Games will send an email to the registered ID with a link to the Fortnite APK installer file.

Fortnite is still one of those games that comes with its own installer and Epic Games is still giving a cold shoulder to the Google Play by not listing the game there.
