Android Fortnite APK

Wait a second, the game is not yet out for Android users and if any site is offering you to download the game then don’t step forward. This can be a scam and you can be in trouble.
As I have already mentioned above that Epic Games had only announced to launch the Fortnite for Android but date is not yet released. I can understand that few fake websites are offering to download the APK file of the game, but they are not real.
Instead, if you really want to play this game, then wait for the announcement of final date and be aware of any fraud. If you are excited about this game and if you cannot wait then go the Fortnite Mobile website and signup there and you will be notified of the availability of game.
How to get Fortnite on Android (Android Fortnight signup)
I can understand how many Android users are eagerly waiting for this game to be released but you should also know how to get it on your android device. It will work almost similar as it worked for iOS.
For iOS, Fortnite release worked with invites (already mentioned in above paragraph). See how it worked and it will work similar for Android users.
- First, you have to sign up for invites to begin the play from its official site. There you have to register your interest to start with.
- After that, you have to play the waiting game. Then you will receive an invite in your email as below mentioned:
- Now its time to download the mobile app. The email you have received will contain a URL, which you have to follow. Open that URL and you will go to the App Store.
- Here you have to download the Fortnite app and then load it. After that, you will be asked either you have received an invite or not. If yes, then you can move forward, login, and start playing game. But if you have not yet received any invitation via email then you cannot play. Don’t worry, keep the downloaded app on your phone and whenever you receive an email of invitation, you will be able to login and play.
How to play Fortnite game?
Before you start playing this game, you should also know how to play this game, right? This game offers 100-player (PvP) Battle Royale game mode. It is just like PUBG where your goal is to be the last man standing among 100 players.
It first start with a pickaxe, which is used as a melee weapon or even for harvest raw supplies for ramps, walls and shelters. To protect yourself from your enemy, you can build a wall, which can be of brick, or steel, don’t use wood as wood is not strong enough compared to brick and steel.
In this, there is no small task. The games starts with the players jumping out of flying “Battle Bus” and after that get down on a big island through parachute. After you landed, you have to loot the buildings for guns, items and several others things just to defend yourself from attackers and also attack others.
A map will be there which you have to check always because after every few minutes, storm comes on the island. You have to stay away from it and if you are caught then you will die slowly. Therefore, this map is very important for you to move forward. After all, only one can be the winner and if you play well, you can be the winner.
If you have played PUBG, then it will be easier for you to understand this game because it works almost similar to that. Here, you will be able to take more than two guns but you are limited to carry number of weapons at a single time. Even guns are colored just to identify their rarity. The grey one is common, orange is legendary and so on. And if the gun is rarer, it will be more deadlier.
Will Fortnite Battle Royale is free to play?
Its an important section to know because this is a common question which will obviously strike on everyone’s mind. However if you look back and see Epic Games other released games then all the PvP Battle games are free in all platforms even in mobile version for iOS.
Though some games were on paid version like Save the world which was PvE game. However, in Fortnite, PvE mode will not be available because of CPU limitations and if you look among users then everyone mostly likes PvP.
However, the game will be free for user but user will also get an offer of in-app purchase for all cosmetic items if they wish to customize players and people. You can play as an individual or even can join a team of four.
However, in one report, it was stated that when Fortnite was first released on iOS, then mobile players have spent more than $1 million and that too only in the first 72 hours.
So all in whole, you will be able to play this game absolutely free but…if you want something cool looking character then you have to spend some money.
Is the game full?
Yes, the game if full and it will be a better experience on mobile devices. May be you can get some differences but not to worry much. The controls are completely on the touch screen and its audio effect is made visual so that you can play the game without any interruption anywhere without headphones.
It has many unique features, which you will not miss. Apart from this, Epic Games has also stated that the game will support Bluetooth controller later, for now only touch screen controls are available.
