Fortnite is Coming to Android

What is Fortnite?

Drawing in more than 125 million users in less than a year and earning millions of dollar per month, Fortnite is a real cultural phenomenon. Simply put, Fortnite is an online survival shooter game. The game modes include ‘Fornite: Save the World’, a co-op survival shooter game for up to four players to fight off creatures while defending objects through building fortifications.

The game modes include ‘Fornite: Save the World‘, a co-op survival shooter game for up to four players to fight off creatures while defending objects through building fortifications. The second is ‘Fortnite: Battle Royale‘, a free to play mode where up to 100 players leap out of an aircraft onto a small island to fight to be the last person standing. Players scour the landscape for weapons and crafting material to build forts and blockades. All this while staying within a perimeter to avoid the incoming storm, forcing participants closer together. Released on the 25th July 2017. Developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly. Currently available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, Macintosh OS and iOS.

 

Fortnite on Android?

The Android version is the complete game existing players already know. The same weapons, the same map and update schedule. The controls have been adjusted to match the format of a touchscreen platform. Some actions have been automated to make it less fiddly for a small screen. Other changes include on-screen footstep and gunshot indicators to tell you the direction of nearby sounds. Outside of these things, the game is virtually identical.

Release Date?

Epic Games has yet to announce the release date but are aiming for a summer release. Their website states that the Android version will be out within the next few months. However, reports from both XDA Developers and 9to5Google have said that Fortnite on Android will arrive later this month, aligning with the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Until then, wait for an official announcement.
