You can now play Fortnite on Android without an invite

Luckily, that changed now, as Epic Games just announced that Fortnite for Android is now available in its beta version for all users with compatible handsets which we'll present below.

Although all Android users can download the game, it won't work as smoothly for everyone.

The catch is that Fortnite - partly because it's still in beta at the moment, and partly because it's a graphically demanding title - won't run on all Android devices. Devices running Android 8.0 or higher, with 3GB or more RAM, and an Adreno 530 GPU (or equivalent) will probably be able to run the battle royale smoothly.

Epic has also revealed the recommended system specs for Android devices to get the optimal experience. Until this move from the developers, the game was only available for a closed beta group and Samsung Galaxy owners. Remember that Epic has no plans to offer it through this store for good reasons, so you'll have to download it from its official site.

Detective Brian Bowser of Detroit Police said: "We have to find out what happened and why it happened". Construction workers found them at the Cantrell Funeral Home on Mack Avenue at about 5:30 p.m.

Fortnite is already available to iOS devices via the App Store. But, even with the added steps and some early security concerns, Fortnite managed to snag 15 million downloads as an invite-only Android game in the first month of its release.

Fortnite Mobile scales down the game into portable form. Besides Android, Fortnite is also available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, Mac, and iOS.

Security experts at MalwareBytes are warning that con artists are trying to hit Fortnite players with a risky data stealing piece of malware. However, those who wanted to try the game needed an invitation before they play.

Fortnite is one of the most popular esports games in the world right now, so having it on an extra platform definitely doesn't hurt.
