Fortnite for Android beta is now available

Fortnite for Android is available for non-Samsung devices. You have to register first and wait for the invite before you can actually play.

Fortnite for Android beta

Epic Games announced Fortnite for Android devices, but it was first available exclusively for Samsung’s latest devices. It only lasted a few days and now the beta version is online.

For those who want to play the game, you have to sign up for Fortnite beta on this link first. The game will be available for download as soon as you do, but you have to wait for Epic’s email invite before you can play.

As mentioned, you’d be able to install the game as soon as you register. But you’ll be doing so using the APK file. If you recall, Epic decided not to use Google Play to install the game. You’ll need to turn on “Install unknown apps” for this one.

If you can’t wait, there are some modified APKs floating around the web. Install it at your own risk. Be warned though that Epic has a number of security checks to stop you from playing as well.

It might be better to just wait it out until the full version is finally released.
