If you're a fan of Battle Royale games, you'll want to install Fortnite on Android. It's one of the most popular mobile games out there, and for good reason. With its fast-paced action and satisfying gameplay, it's easy to see why Fortnite has taken the gaming world by storm. In this guide, we'll show you how to install Fortnite on Android so you can get in on all the fun.
Epic now only offers Fortnite via its own Epic Games launcher
Fortnite's position on Android has seen more flip-flops than a beach resort. The game was booted out of Google Play by Epic Games in order to bypass the 30% cut that Google takes from in-app purchases. This move has not been popular with players, who now have to go out of their way to download the game. Epic has since relented, and the game is now available on the Google Play store again. However, Fortnite is not available on the Play store in all countries. Here, then, is how to install it onto your Android device.
Fortnite for Android minimum spec
So you want to install Fortnite on your Android phone? While the game isn't as graphically intensive as something like PUBG Mobile, it still requires some fairly beefy specs if you want to avoid any lag or choppiness. The list of recommended specs is Android 8.0 or higher, 64 bit, RAM: 4GB or higher, GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher. That said, if your phone doesn't quite meet those specs but is still above the minimum requirements (Android 5.0, 30 bit, RAM: 2GB, GPU: Adreno 308 or higher), you should still be able to run the game without any major issues.
How to install the Fortnite app
As Fortnite is no longer available through Google Play, if you want the app, you'll have to get it from Epic directly. That's an easy process—Epic has made it super simple. Here's the process: Open your phone's browser and head to fortnite.com.On the right-hand side you'll see a 'Download' tab. Tap 'Download | Give Chrome/your browser permission - you can just tap the notification to make the change. You'll be asked to download a Fortnite Installer file. Once that's downloaded, open it and install Fortnite on your Android device.
Open the Epic Games app, tap on Fortnite.
So, you want to install Fortnite on your Android device? Here's a quick guide to help you through the process. First, open the Epic Games app and tap on Fortnite. If you haven't already downloaded it, you'll be prompted to do so at this point. You'll also have to grant Epic Games permission to download this type of app, as you did with Chrome. Once you open the app - and grant more permissions - you can sign into your Epic Games account. From there, you can start downloading the game files. Make sure your device has at least 3GB of available storage space before proceeding. What you can do, once you've installed the Epic Games app, is open it and tap on the Battle Royale icon to start playing.
