Android was the latest platform to see the launch of popular battle royale game Fortnite, and Epic Games decided to make the game exclusive to the flagship Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 at launch. The game stayed exclusive to Samsung devices for a little while, and was then made available for all Android devices later. Epic Games did not want to give incentive to Google and hence has not made the game available on the Play Store. The game downloader needs to be downloaded from the Epic Games Fortnite website and installed on the phone which in turn installs the game.

During the launch of the Android version exclusively on Samsung Galaxy devices, Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 buyers were granted the Galaxy skin. And now those users will be given access to a matching accessory pack, which will be made available from November 1. The new cosmetic accessory pack is all set to include a Galaxy-themed harvesting tool, glider, and ‘back bling’. These will again be available for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 users like the Galaxy skin, and are purely cosmetic items that have no gameplay impact.

The Galaxy skin and the new accessories pack is part of a new promotion with popular Twitch streamer Ninja and Travis Scott and actor/rapper Awkwafina.

The promotion entails that players can win a chance to show their gameplay on a stream with these celebrities live on Twitch. Hector Diaz who is a winner of this will join the celebrities for a match on Twitch on October 30.
