Although Fortnite is no doubt a huge success, not everyone has been happy with the Android version of the game. Firstly, only high-end Samsung devices could participate in the Fortnite Android Beta. Then, Epic also bypassed the Google Playstore and you had to get receive a beta invite to get in. Now, Epic has opened up the floodgates as the Fortnite Android Beta is available to everyone with a compatible device right now.
Although Fortnite isn’t on the Google Playstore (and probably never will be), you can now download the Fortnite Android Beta from the official site. Not all Android devices will be able to run Fortnite, as Epic has revealed a list of recommended specifications. The recommended specs, which you can view below, do seem quite high so only relatively new mobile devices will be able to play the game at a decent FPS.
- OS: Recommended Android 8.0 or higher, 64 bit
- RAM: Recommended 4GB or higher
- GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher
