The arrival of Fortnite on Android has been one of the events of the summer, although we can already affirm with happiness that it is already among us. Its release has been unusual for what we are used to in the Android since the game is not available on Google Play. Given the possible doubts regarding the correct installation of the game, today we explain how to download and install Fortnite for Android.

Check that your Android device is compatible with Fortnite

Before bundling up to download the game, the first thing we have to do is check if our Android device is compatible with Fortnite. Unlike other games and applications, Epic Games is being quite selective about the smartphones and tables that can play Fortnite. While the game started being exclusive to some Samsung devices, now the Fortnite beta is open to more models. In particular, they are all these:

  • Samsung Galaxy: S7 / S7 Edge, S8 / S8 +, S9 / S9 +, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4
  • Google: Pixel / Pixel XL, Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL
  • Asus: ROG Phone, Zenfone 4 Pro, 5Z, V
  • Essential: PH-1
  • Huawei: Honor 10, Honor Play, Mate 10 / Pro, Mate RS, Nova 3, P20 / Pro, V10
  • LG: G5, G6, G7 ThinQ, V20, V30 / V30 +
  • Nokia: 8
  • OnePlus: 5 / 5T, 6
  • Razer: Phone
  • Xiaomi: Blackshark, My 5 / 5S / 5S Plus, 6/6 Plus, My 8/8 Explorer / 8SE, My Mix, My Mix 2, My Mix 2S, My Note 2
  • ZTE: Axon 7 / 7s, Axon M, Nubia / Z17 / Z17s, Nubia Z11

If you are one of the lucky owners of one of these devices, you are one step closer to playing Fortnite. Now, you may also play it if your smartphone or tablet has these minimum requirements: 64-bit OS with Android 5.0 or higher and at least 3 GB of RAM and an Adreno 530, Mali-G71 MP20 or Mali GPU -G72 MP12. You only have to ask for an invitation to the Beta if you have not already done so and follow the steps below.

Download the Fortnite APK for Android

Step 1: We are already a few steps away so that we can play possibly the game of the year of the world, so it’s time to download the Fortnite APK. As always, we recommend that you do it from our website to ensure that you are downloading a real copy and not any of the fakes that swarm the network.

Step 2: Once installed, you have to wait patiently for the game to download. We recommend that you use WiFi networks since the download size is quite large.

Step 3: After a while, we can log in with our Fortnite account or create a new one without having to leave the app. In case we have a Samsung device or we are accepted in the Fortnite Beta we can start the game. All other users will have to wait for an invitation to play it, something that you can request from the Epic Games website.

Download the Fortnite Installer to update the game

We have already said that the Fortnite download is not the usual one in the middle and to update the game you will need to use a new app: the official Fortnite installer. You can download it without problems from Uptodown so you do not have problems with strange versions that have little or nothing to do with the official game. Once installed on your device, we will have to follow the steps indicated by the application itself to be able to update it when appropriate.
