Fortnite’s Android beta is now open


Epic Games announced today that the beta test for the Android version of Fortnite is now open, meaning you dont need an invitation to play it. The battle royale game has been a huge hit on all platforms, and the mobile version is no different. The iOS release of Fortnite has already earned over $300 million. Unlike with iOS, Epic Games wont have to pay a 30 percent cut of all microtransaction sales to Google. Android is an open platform, so you can download apps outside of the official store. Fortnite will not be on Google Play, which means Google will miss out on millions of dollars. Even in its closed beta, the Android version of Fortnite has earned over $60 million. Now that the beta is open, more revenue will come flowing in. You can find a list of Android devices that are compatible with Fortnite here.  

Fortnite on Android is now available for everyone


If youre still waiting to get into the Fortnite beta on Android, now you can finally play the battle royale game on your phone. Today Epic announced that the Android version of the game is open to everyone with a compatible device, so you no longer require an invite to play. (You can find a list of supported Android phones on Epics site.) Fortnite for Android first launched back in August exclusively for Samsung Galaxy devices, before opening up to more smartphones a few days later. Unlike most Android games, it has its own installer, so you wont find it in the Google Play store. You can find step-by-step instructions for getting it up and running right here — though if youre using an older phone, dont expect Fortnite to look amazing.
