Oct-16-2018 Categories: fortnite

Fortnite: Battle Royale has left closed beta on Android and is now open to everyone with a compatible device.

You can see which devices are compatible with the free-to-play battle royale game here.This list should line up pretty well with the full release:

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, Mi 5 / 5S / 5S Plus, 6 / 6 Plus, Mi 8 / 8 Explorer / 8SE, Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix 2S, Mi Note 2

ZTE: Axon 7 / 7s, Axon M, Nubia / Z17 / Z17s, Nubia Z11

Worth noting, Fortnite (beta and full release) will not be available in the Google Play store. Epic Games doesn't want to give Google 30% off the top.

Previously gamers had to sign up for an invitation to play the game on Android devices. Now you can simply go to Epic's website and download the game.

Fortnite is certainly making Epic Games money on mobile devices, but ranks well behind behemoths like Honour of Kings or Clash Royale. Likewise, on PC Fortnite is still earning less than PUBG. It's on consoles---the game is out on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch---where Fortnite continues to dominate digital sales. You can buy Items and materials from mmogo.

In any case, it'll be interesting to see if opening up Fortnite to all Android users (on compatible devices) will boost the game's mobile sales much. One way or another the game seems poised to continue to dominate the console space for the foreseeable future.
