Fortnite, one of the most popular Battle Royale game that has taken the world of gaming by storm in the last couple of months, is coming to Android soon. Epic Games, the developer of the game, has already launched the game for iOS-powered devices back in April as Android users wait for the game to arrive on the platform. In the meantime, the game has managed to earn a significant amount of revenue for Epic Games by amassing more than $100 million in just three months. Fortnite is one of the two major Battle Royale games that has captured the imagination of the gamers with the other one being its competitor PUBG Mobile.

Fortnite ‘supported devices’

After the 30 days of exclusivity, the game will be available for all the supported Android devices. The reason we have mentioned supported Android devices is that this game is expected to demand a certain baseline when it comes to the hardware that will be needed to run the game without any issue.

This means that entry-level devices may not be able to run the game without any issues if they don t have a bare minimum amount of RAM, processor, and a GPU.

However, the list also includes mid-range devices such as the Moto E4 Plus, Samsung J series, Samsung A series, and Sony Xperia XA1 series.
