Big news came out today and that’s that Fortnite is available now for beta on select Android devices.
It’s only available on Samsung Galaxy devices right but it’ll be rolling out to more Android devices later on.
Here are the current Samsung devices that will support Fortnite on Android:
- Samsung Galaxy: S7 / S7 Edge , S8 / S8+, S9 / S9+, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4
An exclusive skin is up for grabs as well. Epic Games, in a blog post, has stated purchasers of the new Samsung Note 9 or Galaxy Tab S4 will get access to the new Galaxy outfit. If you see the Galaxy skin floating around out there, now you know where it came from.
Here’s what Fortnite’s FAQ for Android says:
Play Fortnite on a Samsung Note 9 or Galaxy Tab S4 and you get access to the Galaxy outfit. The Galaxy outfit will appear as a free item for you to claim in the in-game Fortnite store.
