[APK] Fortnite Is Now Live For Android But Only For Samsung Devices For Now


The wait is over for those who were looking for this day. Fortnite is finally here, but it won't be available on the Play Store. It is however available on the Galaxy Apps store, and you can even get to the initial download from Samsung Game Launcher application. You will need a recent Samsung device for this access, so as long as you own a S7, S8, S9, Note 8, note 9, tab S3, or tab S4, you should be golden. 





You can download the game from two places: the Samsung Game Launcher application or the Galaxy Apps storefront. This access is just starting to show up for users, so it may take some time if you are not seeing any of these download prompts for the game.


First, you will download an installer, which is small and takes almost no time to complete. But then you will need to actually install the game, and that comes in at 815 MB. 



Once you finish your download you will be greeted with a screen that asks for your Fortnite account. There are many ways to sign in, such as with a Google, Facebook, Epic Games, Playstation, Xbox, or Nintendo Switch account. So if you have played before, you should have no trouble signing in.

Before you can get to the main menu, you will also have a few choices for controls, such as auto fire, tap anywhere, or a dedicated shoot button.


Also the in-app purchases works which is tied to your Samsung account. So if you haven't set up a payment method in the Galaxy Apps store, you will want to do so if you're going to purchase anything in the game. Now, I'm not sure if this will change after Epic lists the APK on its own site after this exclusivity deal is over, but I would imagine Epic will provide another way to pay sometime in the future. 

So, Epic's battle royale hit Fortnite is finally available on Android, though only Samsung users can play for now. A beta for further device support is in the works which tells us which devices Fortnite will support. If you want to sign-up for the beta then just tap along to this website and add yourself to the waiting list.
