Fortniteâ€™s journey to Android has been a complicated one. A few months back, Epic Games promised to bring the wildly popular survival sandbox title to the mobile OS, but only after side stepping the traditional process for doing so. Fittingly, while it now appears to be live for Android, the process of actually getting the game is, well, complicated.
If you want to get started, youâ€™ll need to sign up for a beta of the game. Thatâ€™s right, while the title has been up and running on any number of other platforms (including its three-day head start on Samsung devices), itâ€™s still in beta on Android. Give Epic your email address, and theyâ€™ll send you an inviteâ€¦”as soon as you can play.â€�
How soon is that? Well, there appears to be a waiting list at the moment. How long all of this will take is anyoneâ€™s guess, though the company says it can take â€œa few daysâ€� for all of it to go through. Since the whole thing is bypassing the Google Play store (much to Googleâ€™s chagrin), youâ€™ll need to install the Fortnite Installer APK to install Fortnite the game.
