Yes, it is official. The massively popular battle royale video game from Epic Games, Fortnite: Battle Royale is finally available for Android devices.
Epic announced Thursday that the Android version of Fortnite is now available for everyone to download for free, so you no longer require an invite to play the most popular battle royale game on your phone.
Epic Games have provided a list of supported Android phones on its official website, from where you can directly download Fortnite for your compatible device.
Initially available for a brief period as a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 exclusive title, Fortnite: Battle Royale for Android was later opened up to other Android devices, but users still needed an invitation for the beta to play.
Thankfully, you no longer need an invitation. Now all Android users can download Fortnite, provided they have a compatible device.
Fortnite for Android Not Available on Google App Store
For those unaware, Fortnite is not available for download on the Google Play App Store or any third-party website. Instead, the game can only be downloaded manually via the official Epic Games Fortnite page.
So, if you see something on the Play Store or on the Internet that claims to be Fortnite APK, just skip it. It’s almost certainly malware, spyware, or other potentially dangerous software that could end up infecting or taking control of your Android phone.
The company decided to skip the Google Play Store for generating more revenue for the company. But the move raised concerns over the potential security risks of offering an APK on a third-party website, risking Android users security by escaping the built-in protections provided by Play Store.
Installing the Fortnite app manually means that users will need to take care of their security themselves, making sure they are downloading the game from the official source.
Here’s How to Download Fortnite for Android Devices
Before beginning, make sure your smartphone can handle the game because it’s a heavy game. You can find a list of officially supported Android devices here.
To get started, head over to either fortnite.com/android from your Android smartphone or this page from your desktop computer
and then use your smartphone or tablet to scan the QR code that appears on your screen.
From there, you can download the Fortnite Installer, either from Samsung if you are using a Samsung device or from Epic Games.
Pull down the notification panel and tap the download link when it’s finished.
To install the game, tap the Settings button. This will open the Settings menu, where you need to allow apps to be installed from unknown sources (aka “sideloading”).
Now jump back to the Fortnite Installer, and tap Install. Once the Fortnite Launcher gets installed, you will need to download the additional 90MB game file by clicking on the Install button.
Fortnite will launch, but you are not finished yet—the game will ask you to download another gigabyte of the file to download on its first launch. Once that’s completed,
you will be ready to play Fortnite.

Fortnite’s mobile version succeeds in part because it is an exact copy of the desktop and console versions of the game,
down to letting you keep your progress and cosmetic cache across platforms. That’s why players are comfortable spending money on the mobile version of the game; all the in-game skins, emotes, and other cosmetics carry over to PlayStation, Xbox,
and PC. PUBG also exists on iOS and Android in a surprisingly stable state — it is made by Chinese gaming and tech giant Tencent
but progress does not carry over to other platforms.
According to Sensor Tower
when Epic lifted the invite-only hurdle for Fortnite on iOS earlier this week, a mechanism the developer had kept in place since the game’s March 15th launch,
the company saw daily mobile revenue triple from around $600,000 to $1.8 million.
Sensor Tower estimates Fortnite has been downloaded 11 million times on mobile alone. According to Superdata Research,
another game analytics company,
Epic made about $126 million through Fortnite in-app purchases in the month of February. Mobile sales will surely boost that figure in the coming months.
